Musician on a Mission Open Mic

October 15 @ 11:30 am - 4:00 pm

Are you a musician on a mission with a song to sing? Join the charitable group Musicians on a Mission  for another Open Mic and Food Drive at Backward Glances! These events are great. This will be the third one we have hosted.  The first one had a British Invasion theme, and the second one had a theme of songs about clothing. What will be our theme for the October event?  That will be revealed closer to the date; check back to this page for details.

Each performer is allowed 3 songs or 12 minutes (whichever comes first). You may only sign up for ONE 12-minute time slot. Twelve minutes is the TOTAL time on and off stage. Two of the three songs must apply to the theme.  The link to sign up will be posted in the fall.  Keep an eye on this page because slots fill up fast! MOAM members get 10% off all merchandise in the store (excluding sale items) so bring your membership card.

It doesn’t matter if you don’t sing; join our audience.  We have a cozy spot and chairs to sit in.  It’s so much fun to see what songs the performers choose to fit the theme.  And all proceeds go to Fulfill Food Bank, so you can enjoy an afternoon of music and do good at the same time.

Here’s one of the highlights from our last show, on April 2nd: local legend Paul Whistler doing his “Discontinued Clearance Sale Blues”.
