Well what is this Open Mic? You may ask. It is an absolutely amazing platform that is organised by Furtados Music at Galleria Shopping Mall. It is not your typical open mic where you come, and perform standard literally poetry or stand-up comedy. At the Furtados Open Mic event you can come, Sing, Play the Guitar, Drum Solo, and have Band Performances, and most of all have a good time and interact with fellow musicians and the crowd.
It was started keeping in mind the enormous talent we have today, present in our kids, youngsters and as well as our elders, who somewhere have forgotten their most cherished interests and talent in the rat race of life. Open Mic is open for all everyone. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or a professional musician, there is equal opportunity for you to come,be on stage and make people witness to the enormous talent that you have.
So it gives you a perfect stage for all up-coming artists who need a stage, to perform or be known.
So they have had two successful events at Powai, and I have attended both, first as a spectator and the second time as a participant, playing Keyboard for various people at the venue. It was a fun event with so many people turning up and better yet the people who performed, ageing from 11 years to the 30’s plus. From young resident Rapper who was all of 15 or the powai band of kids ageing between 11 years to 15 years who covered Guns n Roses the last open mic event.
The open mic event is not just about coming and performing, doing your thing and leaving, but if you wait back the entire event, there are also lucky dip raffle prizes to be won on-spot to even free give away gifts at the venue.
Oh and thats not all!!! visit the Furtados Music Showroom at Shop no.161,1st Floor,Galleria Mall,Hiranandani,Powai for all your musical instruments. It has become my one stop shop for all my musical needs, with every possible brand i could think of under one roof, name it and it was there, from Gibson Guitars to Taylor Guitars, even the Epiphone, PRS and ESP to the Pearl Drum kit and even Yamaha and Korg Keybaords.
Furtados Music Showroom is indeed a treat for all the musicians and music lovers residing in and around powai
So come one and come all, and enjoy the open mic event.
The next event is on 5th January, 2013 from 6:00 pm onwards, at Galleria Shopping Mall Atrium.
