Open Mic – 30th June 2011

Open Mic Event – Red Lion, New London Road, Chelmsford, Essex

The Sing Out Loud Thursday class, finished slightly earlier than normal, on 30th June 2011, to walk to The Red Lion, in New London Road, Chelmsford, for Terry Crouch’s Open Mic event, to perform, what was, effectively, a 20 minute ‘headline’ slot.

Around 20 Sing Out Loud-ers, turned out!  Luckily it was a warm evening, as the pub was fairly full, so we sat outside to stay cool and chat to friends, or inside, to listen to the other performers.

Terry invited Sing Out Loud to perform around 5 songs, and, as we have just been in the recording studio, we performed our favourite songs from the forthcoming  Sing Out Loud EP length CD (copies should be available for sale at the Sing Out Loud Open Evening, on Thursday 7th July 2011).

Eventually, we had the audience bobbing along to the rhythm, and Ooo-ing and Sh-boom-ing, with the best of the Sing Out Loud-ers! 🙂

Terry Crouch is a superb finger-style guitarist and singer.  He is a champion of live music in the Essex area, and runs several Open Mics and other music events in this locality.  If you haven’t seen or heard him before, check him out on YouTube, and see what you have been missing!!

As usual, where Terry (and his superb sound system) is concerned, there were some wonderful acts that evening – well done Terry, for another great event!
