So, using a computer most people wouldn't remember existed, I didn't catch the misspelling in Microbrews! My hasty click of the return button has come back to haunt me.
Facebook will let this awful grammar mixup disappear in a week. In the meantime, look for updates on a new open mic coming to a spot near you!

We had a wonderful Sunday yesterday and are thankful to everyone that came out! Our ears enjoyed some acoustic guitar, beautiful voices, a flute, some tambourine and acoustic rap which was awesome. There was even some collaboration between familiar and new faces at the end! Collaboration is always a wonderful thing!

We would like to share these photos with you, and have some videos that may just pop up a little later today!

***We would also like to inform everyone that in preparation for a busy football season open mic will be moving to one Thursday a month...most likely the third, but we haven't quite worked that one out yet. We will let you know as soon as possible!
So please, keep practicing and playing and we hope to hear and see your beautiful selves in the near future!!!***

Ocelot open mic is picking up! We spy another guitar case and whispers of a flute stopping by later!

It's never too hot for beer and music! Looking forward to an awesome afternoon at Ocelot Brewing Company!!!

07/18/2015

Alright folks, it's Saturday which means tomorrow is Sunday and with Sundays come open mic at Ocelot Brewing Company. If you haven't stopped by yet please do and we promise good times will be had! Three new beers have been tapped for the weekend so come try HOME (a new IPA), Easily Amused (a pale ale), or Idle Hands (a sour ale for our funky friends). Big Frank's Bacon & BBQ will be outside as usual with scrumptious BBQ.
We set up the equipment for you, so bring your instruments (or voices), and your Sunday attitude and let's have an awesome day!
We hope to see you there!

....oh and did we mention musicians get drink specials?

07/12/2015

It's Sunday!!! Which is almost as great as Friday (if not just as cool) because Sunday means open mic!!!! Join us here at Ocelot Brewing Company from 3-6PM for some tunes provided by wonderful local musicians (and you...yes you, you awesome person). Sign up to perform and enjoy drink specials in exchange for your musical contribution to our ears. Ocelot has some of the most delicious and creatively named craft beers in existence that your taste buds need to experience.
Big Frank's Bacon & BBQ has their food truck parked outside with awesome BBQ....but come early because it's so delicious you will want to make sure you can get seconds before they run out! Don't like BBQ? Highly unlikely but feel free to bring outside food...we won't judge.
So bring yourself, your instrument and let's have a great Sunday! See you soon!

07/09/2015

Hey guys! Hope you're ready for Open Mic Sunday at Ocelot Brewing Company this Sunday from 3pm-6pm!

Big Frank's Bacon & BBQ will be slinging deliciousness and don't forget about awesome SPECIALS for participating musicians.

Guys, Let me tell you about some of the equipment I'll have out for use.
First up these Blue enCORE 200's are easily my favorite microphones out of all the stage mics I've used.

I read review after review of people saying that the frequency response on this microphone has actually improved their singing. And I have to say after gigging out with one that I completely agree. I just bought 2 more!

Like if you think Blue should be paying me for promotion. lol.
But seriously come give these puppies a try!

Everything we've learned from years of building the world's best studio recording microphones has gone into the en·CORE 200, a studio-grade handheld dynamic microphone designed to deliver exceptional all-around performance, no matter what your application. The en·CORE 200's Proprietary Dynamic Capsu…

Happy Hump Day everyone!
Garrett here.

The Sunday Open Mic will resume this weekend at Ocelot Brewing Company! They are now offering DRINK SPECIALS on their delicious custom drafts for participating musicians.
PA provided WITH monitors. 3pm-6pm
Can't wait to see you out there!

P.S. I am fully aware that I use a lot of exclamation points but if you can't get excited about something than what's the point dude?

Here is Laurie killing it at last Sunday's Open Mic!
I'd also like to point out that monitors will be set up every week. So you can make sure you are sounding just right :)

THERE WILL BE NO OPEN MIC THIS SUNDAY 6/21.
The folks over at Ocelot Brewing have hired entertainment for Father's Day so if you are looking for a cool place for that occasion look no further.
Reconvene NEXT SUNDAY. Thanks everyone.... And make sure you let your musical friends know about Open Mic Sundays at Ocelot Brewing Company.

Open mic is on for this afternoon. See you guys out there!

06/12/2015

I see a couple likes filtering in.... We've hit 50 in a single evening! Who's coming this Sunday and what kind of stuff can we look forward to hearing?

I have a new song and maybe a few not so new songs that need to be dusted off.

06/11/2015

Last Sunday was a great first open mic for Ocelot! Let's keep the ball rolling this Sunday! Bring yourself, a friend (or three) and ears to listen or something to play. All are welcome and encouraged to perform. Updates on weekend featured craft brews and food truck deliciousness to come!
