I live in Liverpool, Nova Scotia and I'm a server at a pub called the Crickets Harp Inn, and we are currently hosting an Open Mic Talent Search every Tuesday for 10 weeks, it has already started and is into it's third week tomorrow.
If you are in a band or know of a band that trying to get out there, this could be a good opportunity for you. They are offering a prize package full of all kind of goodies to the winner, including some studio time with Tim Feswick Recording Company.
It starts at 8 pm in the pub every Tuesday, you/your band will play about 1/2 an hour (about 5 songs) for the Crickets Harp audience, at the end of the night the audience will pick which band will be coming back for the finalist round(the last 2 of the 10 weeks).
There are some rules also, you and any member of your band have to be 19 years or older. You can not have already released a cd. You have to have some original music, you can't preform all covers from other bands (but a one or two is alright). Voice synthesizers are not allowed. No big drum sets. No taped music.
Everything else is welcome.
If you have any other questions or if your interested in signing up, you can call The Crickets Harp Pub at (902)354-4000.
The Crickets Harp Pub can be found at 149 Main St. Liverpool. If you live in the area and want to check us out.
