Back in the day, I used to promote acoustic and open mic nights in and around the Midlands.
One night, the actor and director Nick Moran came in with the cast of a play he was starring in nearby and
After a while we got talking and he asked if he could get up and do a song.
'Of course, 'I said 'It's an Open mic!'
Do you want to hear how it went?
Over 12 years ago I used to host and promote Open mics in several different venues and now more recently I am performing at them to practice the craft of performing song.
I have noticed that what was true then is the same now and I would like to share with you what I consider to be good things to remember to make your performance stand out.
