Open Mic Guidelines:  

Each performer is invited to showcase two songs.

Because we are a song writing organization we encourage an original song be included in your performance, however it isn’t mandatory.

We realize that music is an expression of art and we respect that. However, we often have families with children in the audience, we ask that you consider the material that you will be performing and be respectful in return.

SUSWA Board will pick the performer of the night and they will be posted at the following Open Mic.  These top performers will be invited for a “Best Of Show” sometime in 2014. (Likely the end of the year).
