Offsquaremusic.org is hosting a New Year’s Eve gathering. Unfortunately there won’t be pizza and champagne this year, but we’re still going to have a fun time bringing live music into your homes. We’ll start at 8 and go until probably around 10. Rich and Jacquie (Small Potatoes) have agreed to conclude the event with their customary virtual toast, and we are grateful to them. They are our inspiration and leaders of this wonderful musical community.
We did our best to accommodate everyone who wanted to perform, but there just wasn’t enough time to give everyone one song or five minutes. We will put you on the next regular Every Saturday event on January 2nd. Here’s the list of performers:
Every week we join together for eight performances of music and poetry — and to enjoy each other’s company. We bring together musicians from our local area — but Zoom has allowed us to go national, and we even reach across the pond!
Doors open at 6:30 pm, so join us early to greet your friends, or stay afterward to visit. If you are performing, please come at 6:30 pm for a sound check.

If you’d like to perform, please contact Andy Andrick, firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are a first timer, you can find a video HERE that will help you get set up.
We record our sessions and share them within our group of performers. It enhances sound quality greatly to use a USB mic in preference to a built-in computer mic.
Hope to see you there, Every Saturday, Weekly Zoom Open Mic, doors open at 6:30 pm.

Don’t miss it, it promises to be another great night of live music! See you there!
This year has presented challenges to many musicians to stay connected in virtual ways. Off Square’s New Year’s Eve parties have historically been held at Stage Left Cafe for a number of years. But this year……Small Potatoes and Off Square Music want to welcome a brand new year and would love for you to join in and help us do just that!
A Zoom New Year’s Eve party will be set up for Thursday, December 31, 2020 from 8-10:00 pm.
There will be spots for 12 performers @ 10 minutes each. For the last 10 minutes the Spuds will welcome the new year. If you would like a slot, sign up:

Doors open at 6:30 pm – Come on in, get settled, and visit with your friends. You can also use this time to locate your Mic control, Gallery/Speaker View switch, and (Text) Chat button. Once the music begins, the host will mute all microphones. The host will still be available by text chat, as will your fellow listeners and performers. The music begins at 7:00.
