Live music in the Lake Macquarie suburb of Morisset has been given a boost with a monthly open mic night being organised by iPlay Music at the The Gallant Pelican cafe.
With a mantra of ‘everyone is welcome to play’, the event has seen both young and old musos of all experience levels take to the stage to showcase their talents to an appreciative crowd.
In a ‘black board’ style arrangement, people wishing to play just need to write their name down on arrival and they will be given a slot to perform. Most equipment is supplied including mics, amps and a digital piano, although BYO guitar is encouraged.
The next open mic night will be held on the 31st of July from. This time the cafe which is also licensed is throwing a BBQ to welcome newcomers.

There will be a BBQ for this one apparently (the cafe owner posted on their page today).
