Practical Stuff

We are an open mic club meeting every Tuesday at the British Oak pub in Old Dover Road, Blackheath. We are more of an acoustic than a pure folk club. Recent sessions have included virtually every musical genre.

We have a 300 watt Yamaha PA system with 2 mics and 4 other inputs. If more inputs are needed a Behringer mixer can be made available with prior notice. The space is relatively limited and a four-piece band is probably the optimum.

We operate a first come-first served system. There are 10 minutes/2 song slots. It is best to arrive by 8pm to avoid disappointment and ask for Lynne. We only have one rule we ask performers to respect: our excellent host, Peter, prefers people not to publicise gigs in other pubs, which seems fair enough to us.

2009 New Year Update

A new year, and the club continues to go from strength to strength. We've seen some great new performers (including the fantastic Toby Benko); a guest appearance from Sossity ; new material from Bruise; and a great show of commitment as regulars made their way to the Oak through the snow and ice.

The format remains the same: 2 song/ten minute sets, floorspots and guest performers. Make sure you get along early to guarantee your slot!

I always look forward to Tuesdays. This is a really warm welcoming music evening's entertainment and I never cease to be impressed by the local stars. There is so much musical talent in one room you can't fail to enjoy! It's also great to see old faces and meet new ones. Keep up the good work.
