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.

Tuesday 28th April

One of those nights that started out quietly, and ended with us running out of time to squeeze in all the performers we had. Really great to see some new performers (John and Niall's version of The Flight of the Conchords' Most Beautiful Girl In The Room went down particularly well). It was also great to hear Baxter perform excellent versions of Copperhead Road and Beeswing on the dulcimer - a great example of the kind of eclectic performance we get at the Club.
