After a few years’ sabbatical, Paul L Martin’s original Open Mic Piano Bar returns – in a brand new home… except it’s not in the West End, and none of us are called Wendy!
Moving south of the river, every Thursday from 7pm a host, pianist and bass player will take to the stage at The Loft @ Brasserie Toulouse Lautrec to invite singers of all genres and abilities to step up to the mic. Entry is FREE but a hat is sent round for tips for your host and musicians (NY-style)!
Our wonderful roster of hosts include Jamie Anderson (“dominating stage presence and racy honesty” The Upcoming), Champagne Charlie (“dazzling wit” The Gay UK) and Paul L Martin (“a supreme gift for comedy as well as a powerful voice” The Stage), ably accompanied by pianists Tom Carradine, Simona Budd, Birgitta Kenyon and Nicki Williamson.
For punters, taking part is as easy as rocking up with sheet music and asking to sing – for all others, listening is free, and the bar is open!
