Downtown Farmville Plans Open Mic Night

Published 4:33 pm Thursday, June 30, 2011

Downtown Farmville is proud to present the third Buffalo Creek Guitar Open Mic Night. This free event will take place on Wednesday, July 6 from 6.30-9 p.m. on the Crute Stage located at the corner of Main and Fourth Streets in Farmville. Sponsor for this event is Nelson Stone…Irish Design Stone Walls.

Buffalo Creek Open Mic was established in 2006 when Buffalo Creek Guitar Company first opened. Over the years, all types of music have been presented on our stage, from singer/songwriters, small electric groups, jazz, bluegrass, old time, reggae, and Celtic bands, to name a few. Previously, the event has taken place in the Buffalo Creek store, but now Downtown Farmville is bringing it to the Crute Stage so that a larger audience may enjoy the talents of our community members.

Those interested in performing may sign up at 6:15 p.m. Each act will have the opportunity to perform two or three songs. Microphones, direct boxes, and a few small amps will be provided. Any other needs are the responsibility of the individual performer. If you have special setup requirements or any other questions, call Buffalo Creek Guitar at 315-8911.

Open Mic Night is a family-friendly event, so bring the kids and the grandparents, too! Don't forget your lawn chairs or blankets, and of course your instrument.
