The Bluebird Cafe Open Mic

In an effort to keep our guests, staff and songwriters safe, we have joined many other local venues in asking for proof of full course of vaccination or negative Covid-19 test within 48 hours of show entry. If you are coming with a group, please relay this information to all members of your party so everyone can be seated. We are now 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 20 songwriters who call in to sign-up (each songwriter is allowed one guest). Due to our reduced capacity seating, we have limited our available performance slots for Open Mic Night to 20 writers. In an effort to include as many writers as possible, we ask that participating songwriters not sign up for two consecutive Open Mic night shows. 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. 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 have a house Taylor Grand Pacific guitar and a Kawai digital piano (88-weighted keys) that are available to use.PLEASE NOTE: Priority is not given to out-of-town/out-of-state songwriters.Open Mic Nights are made possible by The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The RIAA recognizes the importance of The Bluebird Cafe as providing opportunities, not just to established writers and artists, but also to those who are developing their talents and their careers. More about RIAA here. Tickets for these shows are not reserved in advance. These seats are available on a first come/ first served basis when doors open. Please note that you may be seated with person outside of your immediate party.

Alive & The Bluebird Presents: Clare Bowen & Brandon Robert Young (VIRTUAL SHOW)

* This is a virtual streaming show through StageIt*For the past 28 years, in January, The Bluebird Cafe and a host of songwriters, have helped raise funds for Alive Hospice. Revenue from a months worth of shows, donated by the songwriters performing, has provided a significant portion of the nonprofit hospices annual budget over the years.COVID-19 has forced the longtime friends and partners to reimagine how this fundraiser can go forward with the tiny venues continued closure and lack of opportunity for social distancing. Their solution is to channel their creativity in new directions that include livestreaming from the cafe via StageIts platform plus a new partnership with Green Door Gourmet to ensure that the show will go on.For tickets to this VIRTUAL show, please visit: stageit.com/bluebirdcafetn
