“I’m very excited to be hosting the newest Open Mic Night in [Abilene]. I got my start through an Open Mic Night ran by Benny Bartek and Tony Barker. They helped me so much and I hope I can do the same for newcomers! Come out and have some fun!”

This is an opportunity for singers and songwriters to take the stage, meet with fellow musicians, and showcase their talents. Any and all styles of music are welcome. Whether you want to sing one of your own songs or something written by somebody else, you’re welcome to take the stage.
