A SUPPORTIVE ATMOSPHERE
If you've played at the Sunapee Community CoffeeHouse and would like any supportive feedback on your performance, just let us know. We as musicians usually don't have many opportunities to received detailed feedback, and here's a safe place to get some on anything, from stage presence, vocals, to mic techinique or lyrics. We're not experts, just audience members and fellow musicians, but we might have some observations that might be of some value.
We love our Open Mics, and the people it supports. The atmosphere can be magic. You get up to 15 minutes or three songs. We have all levels perform, from professionals to first timers, and all are welcome. Not only that, you'll be amazed by the supportive atmosphere. In fact that's part of why we started the CoffeeHouse. Sign up on site at the Open Mic, no pre-registration required. Try to be there at 6:45 to get your slot. Although it's allowed, we don't encourage singing with a pre-recorded song on a machine, but do encourage you to find someone to accompany you. Live music is what we're about. If you need some help or ideas let us know.
We received "Best of New Hampshire 2005" for our Open Mic.
Very cool, but it's you who keeps the music coming!
