Tunesmith’s Cafe

So every couple of months on a Thursday evening I pack my keyboard into my car and head to Tunesmith’s Cafe, to get my Open Mic Night on. I’ve never really been into doing Open Mic Night gigs, and I’m definitely past the point in my career where I need to do them to get my music and name out there. But there’s something about this ongoing event that I really enjoy, and feel it’s important to support it. The three blokes who run the show (Mike, Makk and Bobby) are so dedicated to it and have a really genuine desire to provide a platform for local singer-songwriters to get performance experience. They go lengths to make it a worthwhile experience, recording the audio of each performance for the artist, taking photos and handing out “audience feedback sheets” which they then collect up and give to the performer. They’re a humorous and friendly bunch, and have created something of a small community around what they do. Here’s some snaps from my recent appearance at Tunies, with these lovely fellas. You never did meet nicer people! [pe2-gallery album=”http://picasaweb.google.com/data/feed/base/user/118294268219415625349/albumid/6009530257423540481?alt=rss&hl=en_US&kind=photo” ]
