THURSDAY NIGHT OPEN MIC VARIETY SHOW

Our Thursday Open Mic is a casual forum for you to show off your talents hosted by Hamilton’s The Vaudevillian. Our open stage variety show is for singers, musicians, comedians, poets, jugglers - you name it - all performers are all welcome.

For the Open Mic there are $5 beer specials and the evening often coincides with our Cask Thursdays where we feature local craft brew on cask.

How it works

• first come, first serve
• Sign-up begins at 7:30 PM for that evening, absolutely no fee.
• Performing starts at 8:00 PM (8:15ish Hamilton Time)
• Sometimes folks jam after.

Depending on the turn out we generally ask participants to limit their performance time to roughly 10 mins / 3 songs. If you ask nicely The Vaudevillian may even accompany you or lend you a guitar/banjo/thimble/kazoo/whiskey/sparkles.

We advise that you show up early to get a seat as the place can fill fast!
