DSA OPEN MICS & SHOWCASES

Our Open Mic and Showcase Programs are designed to help the songwriters develop his performing skills. Who better to start promoting his songs than the songwriter himself. Starting with performing 1 song at the open mic and getting the experience to work up to a 30 minutes to 1 hour spot on a showcase.

OPEN MIC: Songwriters can play as few as one song and as many as 3-5 songs depending on how many sign up. Just show up and sign up on the list. You will get a turn to play for a nurturing audience who will listen to your song and not judge your performance, but can offer constructive feedback upon request.

SHOWCASE: Songwriters who have a live recording of their performance and can play 30 minutes of their original material may contact Steve to schedule a spot. If you do not have a recording, then show up and perform at the open mic and let Steve know you will be there. Once you have performed on the 30 minute program at the Varsity Club, then you can apply for a one hour spot at the Filling Station.
