New Bluebird Cafe Open Mic Guidelines

The following guidelines will be implemented beginning on June 1st, 2015:

The Bluebird Café - Monday Open Mic: NEW Guidelines 

We will now be taking phone in sign-ups for our Monday Night Open Mic. In order to sign-up, please call 615-943-8168 between the hours of 11am and Noon CST on Monday in order to sign up to participate. You will not be able to leave a message; you need to keep trying ’til you get through to someone who will put you on the list. We will take the first 25 songwriters who call in to sign-up. (Each songwriter is allowed one guest).  

Writers who are on the list must be at the club and have checked in with the host by 5:15pm on that Monday evening in order to perform.  

We will be honoring any existing “Play Next Time” stamps but will not be distributing any more as of June 1st. 

Please remember the following guidelines as they remain in place: Each participating writer will get the chance to play 1-2 original songs, solo or accompanied by no more than two others on stage. Drums and backing tracks are not allowed. We do have a house Kawai digital piano that is available to use (88-weighted keys).  

PLEASE NOTE: Even with the advanced sign-ups, we cannot give priority to out-of-town/out-of-state songwriters.
