Hi All,

Personally, I have no musical talent, and will be there for the entertainment and beer only.

If a few cold brews and some local live music is yout thing and you would like to join me - this is open to anyone and everyone.

No - I've never been there
Yes - I agree this sounds interesting.

Unfortunately I can't make it to this one, and missed the last one, but fingers crossed it'll stay alive until Feb... huge applause to McGee's for getting an Open Mic night started, hope its a huge success

Re: "Open Mic" night at McGees pub, Zürich (Bahnhoff Wiedikon)

With a formal apology to the Moderators for my previous purile post, I am now trying to comply with Forum ettiquette.

This event was discussed last night at the EF gathering at the "unofficial Thursday night drinks" at the Viadukt markets. I am re-posting so the newbies can find this thread a little easier.

For those who are still interested in joining us at the McGee's pub, please indicate on the list above so that I can keep track of you.

Many of you I now know by name only.... and not by your EF moniker, so it makes it difficult to stay in touch.

Remember that the event is free so there is no obligation to attend once you have said yes (or maybe).

Updates will follow closer to the date.

Re: "Open Mic" night at McGees pub, Zürich (Bahnhoff Wiedikon)

OK so the event is this Sunday night and it's not likely I will post something before then.

So....
I just confirming that I will be at the bar around about the 7:30pm mark (hopefully a bit before) and will be instructing the bar staff of my position.

If you are turning up and don't know anybody, just ask at the bar and they should be able to help point you in the right direction.

As I mentioned, there is no cost or obligation to attend this event, I (and others) are just going to listen to and support local musicians who are keen enough to get up and play a tune.

You don't have to be a musician to attend.... you just have to be good company.

See you all there Sunday

Bit of a shame Lord Terence O'Hall won't be plugging in; I miss yelling the lyrics to his covers in the mistaken belief Open Mic means Karaoke with Tel...

Hello billhardie

Thanks for organizing this event. Had a great time. Was lovely meeting other EFers and non-EFers alike .

Particularly liked the Janis Joplin soundalike and the reggae riddims at the end. Irie mon! .

At the station on the way home, we were treated to even more of the same as one of the musicians from the event strummed away on his guitar. Can't remember if he was singing as well though .

All in all a wonderful evening with excellent company, music and food .

Roll on the next Open Mic sesh!

Hi Bill,
That was a great night - enjoyed meeting yet more new people.
The company was great and the music was just brilliant - some really great singers (er, not me of course).
Thanks again,
Basher.

Well Ishaka.... I didn't realise the night was that good


Firstly, I'd also like to give a big Thanks for everyone showing up last night. It was a great Sunday event.

I was talking to Chris (the publican) and he said that these things should be repeated every 2nd and last week of every month.

Hopefully we can gather some momentum on the EF for these nights in the future.

I'd like to thanks all those that came along from the EF. Particular thanks to Bill for instigating things and staying relaxed whilst I was flapping my chicken wings......
Next Open Mic: Sunday 30th January @ 7.30pm. Look out for this event every 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month.
Rock On!
