Its a very strange situation when some Open Mic Nights are being cut by breweries / management as they can't see the benefit of bringing in so many customers on mid-week nights. Recent losses include The Black Swan, Oakham and The Albion, East Molesey. However some new Open Mic Nights are just starting up. On Sunday night, the place to be is The Slug and Lettuce, Guildford. The local blues guitarist SHACKLETON, Will is hosting "The Sunday Sessions" a great showcase for young and talented musicians. Another Open Mic Night "Blue Velvet" will be launched on the 29th May, at The Remix Bar, Woking and is being organised by NEADS, Anthea who plays solo and with her husband Matt in Inimitable Dragonfly. It will only be once a month on the last Thursday. The new owners at the Mayford Arms, Woking will also be running one on alternate Tuesday's starting sometime soon.
