People have been very complimentary about my first live performance and also very encouraging. Friends say to me “When’s your next one?” and I then realise I’ve fallen into the same old trap I’ve been falling into for my entire life, by failing to act.
Anyway there’s a pub in my local village who do an open mic night on Sundays. So this Sunday after dropping my daughters off with their mum, I’ll be going along to take a look at what the crack is. My intention is that I’ll perform the following week.
I’m not sure why I’m going down the ‘checking it out’ route first because I didn’t bother when I did this previously, but I just feel like its the right thing to do on this occasion.
My main concern is my guitarlele and whether its internal mic is going to be good enough for live performances. Its a Gretcsh and cost over £250 so I’d hope it is decent enough quality.
I also heard that The Brook are still doing their Open Mic night after all. I’d not heard anything more about it so assumed they had scrapped the idea. I may return and perform there again if that’s the case.
