Stage is set for second Lake Country open mic contest

Have you ever wanted to showcase your musical, singing or songwriting talents?

The second annual Lake Country Open Mic Has Talent! contest is meant to spotlight an original singer/songwriter and give him/her an opportunity for recording studio time, as well as performance opportunities, said organizer Jennifer Boal.

“This event allows original songwriters (over the age of 19) to showcase their music for our panel of judges,” she said. “Becca Mabbett won our event last year and was given recording studio time and many performance opportunities throughout the Okanagan.”

Dates for the Lake Country Open Mic Has Talent! contest are set for March 6, April 3 and May 1 at the Lake Country Coffee House. Prizes include pro audio recording/production time with Rann Berry of Ocean Recording Studio and Dan Marcelino of  DMA Studio as well as opportunities to perform through the Lake Country Open Air Performance Society, Summer Jam, Parks Alive!, and ArtWalk.

The talent contest runs in correlation with the open mic nights at the Lake Country Coffee House, which run throughout the year on the first Wednesday of every month from 6 to 8 p.m.

“The open mic provides an opportunity for musicians to perform in a welcoming environment,” said Boal. “Every style of music has been touched upon during the open mic nights. Musicians cover popular songs as well as original creations.”

Registration forms for the contest are available at the  Lake Country Coffee House on Bottom Wood Lake Road, or can be downloaded from the website at www.lakecountryopenmic.ca.
