Hop Forged now hosts "Karaoke" and "Open Mic" nights on rotating Tuesdays every month. Both events will start at 5:30 pm and continue on until 7:30 pm on their designated days. Participants for Open Mic Nights can save their time slot by booking ahead of time and providing their information below. Each time slot for sign-ups will be 15 minutes: 10 minutes to set up, and a 3-minute set. Our stage is fully equipped with lighting, sound set-up, and a microphone for participants to use.
Singing, comedy, and poetry readings seem to be the most common. However, we're open to whatever talent you'd like to show off! Just give us a quick call at 559-670-3097 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for confirmation on whether or not your act would be okay to perform here if you feel unsure beforehand.
We allow all genres of cover or original songs as long as they are family-friendly since we are an all-ages-welcome establishment. Just make sure that the song(s) you choose to perform will fit accordingly into your 3-minute time slot.
Just your good energy! Aside from that though, we are fully equipped with lighting, sound, and microphone set-up so you would only need to bring any instruments or props required for your act/performance.
Practice, practice, practice! Make sure that you memorize your song lyrics or skit before the event and feel comfortable and confident performing it. Reserve your day and time slot ahead of time and spread the word to your friends or family so you have a good support system and familiar faces in the audience cheering you on!
It does not cost anything to participate in or view Open Mic Nights. There are no prizes, however, if you'd like you could join in on our Bingo Nights Wednesdays from 5:30-7:30 pm where there are prizes for winners!
