How We Do Things

Nothing that follows is a contractual obligation.  The host in each evening is free to modify the “rules” as demanded by the aesthetic need of the moment.

The Enforcer: The beatings will continue till morale improves!

Typical Program
Music begins between 7:30 and 7:45
 Sign-up begins between 7 and 7:30 and closes at 8:00

We complete the sign-up list, no matter how late it goes.


Sign-up and performance order:

  1. Get your name on the sign-up list prior to 8.  Sign-up closes at 8.  (See note on late arrivals below.)
  2. Your name will be placed in an urn
  3. During the open mike, we will draw names from the urn: listen closely for yours
  4. Your name/number may be selected in the first or second half, we do not distinguish based on how early you arrive.

Late Arrivals: If you arrive after 8, find the host and get your name on the sign-up list.  You will perform after all the other names have been chosen from the urn.  You will perform in the order of your arrival.
