First Fridays of the month
performer signup starts @ 7:30 pm
performance order is via random draw "from the hat"
open to teens*
Just like our twice-monthly Open Mics for adults, the Young Musicians' Open Mic has a focus that's 100% on the music.
Teen co-hosts who are students from several area high schools, performers themselves, facilitate the evening --- from running the sound board to introducing the acts. Enjoying the music, improving performance skills, and keeping the tone respectful is the focus: Studio 99 is a listening room environment.
15-minute, 3-song sets are the rule, unless there is a very large turnout (in which case, sets will be cut to two songs).

*Thanks for understanding about our age limitations. While there are many wonderful pre-teen musicians out there, our goal is to create a space for musicians of middle and high school age to perform that is supportive and respectful, yet benefits from a sophisticated music-centric listening room setting.
vocal mics, PA, congas, and grand piano onsite
guitarists and bassists: bring your own gear and amps!
drummers: Straight-ahead rock drumming with sticks is too much for the room,
which has a very live acoustic --- but hot rods or brushes are OK
