My wife and Daughter decided that they wanted to do a Mother-Daughter trip so while they were away I took the opportunity to check out a different open-mic venue in the Ottawa area every night.
You might think that this would be a really fun thing for a performer to do, but it was actually a bit nerve racking. Each night there was a different host, different equipment and different crowds. I had one crowd where the average age was 70 and another one where the average age was 25.
It was good practice for changing up your set list on the fly.
All of the Venues turned out to be different but very welcoming and when it was all said and done, it was a lot of fun.
If you were following me on Facebook or Instagram you would have seen the pictures. For those of you who don’t have me on social media, here are the highlights.
Sunday night was the only night where I could not find a place to play. Most of the Sunday night venues had been discontinued for the summer months.
Night 6 was a bust…
