Open Mic Night Set For Aug. 3 In Farmville

Downtown Farmville is proud to present the fifth Buffalo Creek Guitar Open Mic Night. This free event will take place on Wednesday, August 3, 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 Centra Southside Community Hospital. Previous sponsors for this summer have included Real Living Cornerstone, Buffalo Creek Guitar Company, and Nelson Stone.

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. Don't forget lawn chairs or blankets, and of course an instrument.
