Open Mic Night at Deluxe Brewing @ Deluxe Brewing Co. | Albany | Oregon | United States
You’re invited to Open Mic Night at Deluxe Brewing in Albany, OR! Join us on the fourth Thursday of each month in 2024 in the Deluxe taproom. This free event is a chance to feature local musicians and performers of all experience levels and talent backgrounds who are looking for a place to perform. Hosted with the aim to provide a relaxed atmosphere for the creative process of our local talent, we ask that all guests be respectful of the space and those who occupy it. Open to all ages, we ask that profanity and content be limited to roughly PG-13 status for the time being.
Sign-up for talent will start ten minutes before showtime at 6:50 PM. Performances will be from 7-9 PM, with acts limited to 15 minutes maximum. For musicians, this averages roughly 3-4 songs, yet music, comedy, poetry, magic, or other quality talent is welcome.
A microphone, amplifier, and cables will be provided. Individuals who require sheet music, instruments or a music stand should bring their own. Talent will be scheduled in order of who signs up with our Open Mic Host, Travis, coordinating the event. There may be the opportunity for second performances once the initial list is completed.
Open Mic Night is free to spectators and performers, though we recommend pairing your entertainment with refreshments from our bar and on-site food cart.
Deluxe Brewing is open to all ages, apart from the immediate bar area and is always pet-friendly. The taproom serves craft beer, house spirit cocktails, cider, wine and soda. The Deluxe Food Cart is also open throughout the event time for dinner orders.
