'Open Mic Nites'
When I am not playing away on my contracted engagements I play at several local venues. It is with great pleasure that I have a large crowd of enthusiasts who follow me around and join in the entertainment by giving a few songs. These gigs have been called 'Open Mic Nites' and are growing in popularity.
On the evenings when I am away on contract, I ensure that a deputy is arranged so that entertainment is always provided for visitors.
It's worth travelling a fair distance, as many do, by sharing a car while others have a taxi which they find cost effective because there is no charge for admission and the entertainment is free.
