When I was seventeen I decided to go busking in Chester on a day out and found that it’s a city absolutely full of music! Knowing this, last night I decided to go and find out what an open mic in Alexander’s is like.
Alexander’s open mic night is very popular and the place was absolutely packed with musicians and audients alike. What really amazed me was that although the room was packed almost to the rafters, the audience were absolutely silent and attentive to every person playing.
I played a jazz set on my jazz guitar including ‘Fly me to the moon’ and a song I wrote at the weekend that I’ve decided to call ‘Nothing’. You can see me play my song in the video below.
A fantastic evening and open mic, I hope to go back and play another set in the future.
