First Saturday Open Mic & Singalong – February 1, 2020

Sign yourself up to play on February 1st at 7 PM at Unity Spiritual Center, 225 W. Calhoun, Woodstock. Each performer or group gets 2 songs or 10 minutes.

As always, we not only enjoy lots of great music from the talented musicians in our area, including Laurel Palma greeting us on the piano and Gloria Burchfield preparing our fun sing-a-long halfway through the evening, but we also enjoy delicious food contributions from the sharing table. Thanks in advance to everyone who contributes. 

If you love listening to live music, this is the best thing you can do on a Saturday evening! So sign up to play by emailing Andy Andrick (aandrick28@yahoo.com). If you forget to sign up early, you can also sign up that evening when you arrive.

Not performing? Bring your instrument anyway and join in on the sing-a-long. No instrument? No problem! You can still sing along with the words flashed up on the big screen β€” we promise you a fun evening!

With great music, good friends, food and fun, there’s not a better way to spend a Saturday evening. Bring your family, bring your friends, and bring yourselves. See you Saturday evening.
