Thursdays Afterwork Acoustic 7.30 till 9:30 at The Cavern
Songwriters Open Mic 7.30 till 9.30
followed by a house band through until 2am
Over the last few weeks The Cavern has been holding an early
evening songwriters open mic showcase The acoustic open mic has enjoyed performances by many Liverpool based songwriters
but also seen artists traveling from outside the Northwest to come and play. The relaxed unplugged atmosphere, low
volume and jovial banter is also appealing to Beatles tourists and locals dipping in for a quick drink after work.
“ It’s been great how the event has shaped up, it’s an
amazing variety of acts that come to play from a capella groups to violinists and didgeridoo players. It’s exciting to
see how willing the Cavern audience is to support new talent playing original material…. lots of acts end up selling
CDs to foreign tourists. It's refreshing to see The Cavern associated not just with the Beatles legacy but also being
recognised as one of Liverpool’s premier venues for new material ”
Pete Smith host of the open mic, writer/singer for The Flame and Jak-I dreamcatcher cybershow.
Between 6 and 8 any Thursday any songwriters who turn up can play.
Then at 8 o’clock each week, Acoustic Afterwork features a full set from the guest act. After that house band Wink
Rogers kicks in with all your favourite songs till late.
Entry is Free from Thursday afternoon right through till the bar closes.
“ It’s just a really nice atmosphere after being in the
office all day….free entry so you can just dip in and out when you like….none of the acts go on too long…the
volume is low enough that you can talk to your mates but then out of the blue someone no-ones ever seen before gets up
and delivers a song you'll never forget”
