|Percussionist/singer/ songwriter Alison Joy was a highlight of a Haystacks Coffee House Open Mic.|
Note: This evening will include a poetry interlude by Patrick Murfin to cleanse the musical palate between the real entertainment. A large enough bribe to Tom Steffens can arrange for him to be dragged to the woods and beaten to prevent the atrocity.
Haystacks Coffee House Open Mic and Jam Night returns for an evening of entertainment on Friday, August 16 from 7 to 10 pm at the Tree of Life Unitarian Universalist Congregation in McHenry, 5603 Bull Valley Road.
The evening will feature local performers showing their skills as folk, rock and roll, jazz, classical musicians, comedians and poets. All are invited to attend, perform or just sit back and enjoy the entertainment.
Open Mic means anyone is welcome to take the stage and perform music, comedy or poetry. There will be a limitation placed on the amount of acts performing. Performances should be kept to less than 10 minutes. Several times during the evening, there will be a jam for all who want to perform in a large group musical number.
An acoustic piano and a sound system will be provided.
Admission to the Haystacks Coffee House Open Mic & Jam night is free. There will be a free will offering taken to cover expenses.
Those interested in performing should contact Tom Steffens at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 815 404-7908.
