Open Mike: On the night of
performance, performers sign in on the board for one of 10 available
12-minute slots (first-come basis). A 10-15 minute break occurs
after the first 5 slots. The allotted 12 minutes includes set-up
time. A $1 donation is requested from each person (audience and
performers alike) to help support Club operational costs.
Showcase: A modified Open Mike format that occurs the
2nd Tuesday of each month. One Club member is selected and
given a double-length set (usually the last two slots during the
Concert: An evening of entertainment from among the
best of regional, national, and international talent. Reservations
are required and include a donation for the performer(s).
Usually, 4 single-song slots are available before the main
performance, which are filled, as with Open Mike Night, on a
Party: Twice a year, in May (to
celebrate our birthday) and December (a Holiday Party), The Club hosts a party with a
modified format and special attractions. Performers sign up
for single-song slots, and after each 3 song set, a free raffle
takes place for CDs brought in by volunteers. At the half-time
break, there is free cake provided for all. If all song slots
are performed before we run out of time, we start at the top of the
order and continue to the end of the evening.
An 'Open Mike' format, but entirely un-amplified. No PA or
other amplification equipment is used, and only acoustic instruments
and vocals are featured. A return to the pub-style
environment that inspired The Club's founders.
