I see that you have an open mic on Friday nights. My friends love attending your bistro and mentioned the awesome music there. I'm looking to host an open mic session in Port Moody. If you ever need a host I would really like the opportunity. I'm a 43 year old mother of a 4 year old boy and played in an Indie rock band for 4 years in Vancouver. We split last year (family commitments and our guitarist returned to his homeland Spain) and I have recently started getting back into roots, blues, alt country and folk.
My idea of an open mic would be a more organised "take the mic" night whereby bands/songwriters would send their recordings and I would pick out artists to play maybe 4 songs each on a given night. Inbetween these artists playing their could be open mic for anyone in the crowd wanting to come up and play 2 songs. I'm from London, UK and this is something I witnessed back home and went down a treat.
Let me know your thoughts! Here is a rough sample of our indie band Hollow Strangers playing at Joes apartment on Granville Street. I was 5 months pregnant :)
I look forward to hearing from you.
Would like to follow up on this- thought I had before.
