Open Mic at Bennett Recreation Center
● By Rick McGarry
Bennett Recreation Center will be hosting Open Mic Night on the 2nd Friday of each month. They are aiming for a laid back and comfortable setting to play and/or listen to live local musicians, poets, actors, artists, comedians, singers, and dancers. Anything from showing off your art, poetry reading, comedy/improve routines, original or cover music, or “jamming” is encouraged. All ages, all genres, and all types of “art” are welcome.
Just show up, sign in with the host and get a spot on the schedule for that evening. When it is your turn, the host hooks you up to the sound system (PA and one microphone provided, you must bring your own instruments, except they do have a piano) and introduces you. Typically each performer will have 10 minutes to perform.10-12 acts will be showcased each night
Bennett Recreation Center is located at 925 W. Grand River in Howell. Doors open at 6:30pm to sign up and purchase tickets, on a first come, first served basis. Concessions are available for purchase. Cost for audience members is $2. Performers attend for free.
