Last Open Mic Night

Greetings all open mic participants,

First off, thanks for all of your participation!  We have really enjoyed hosting open mic for the last several years.

Unfortunately, we are at a juncture with our music program in which we have to temporarily discontinue open mic.  Without consistent personnel to run sound and logistics for the evening, we are unable to facilitate the weekly program.  If we can implement a system conducive to running an open mic night, we will.

Thanks again for many nights of great music!
