Watch this video from the Open Mic Jan 21st 2023
I've been hosting Open Mics and Jams for many years, I don't want to date myself, ha!!!! It was a very popular weekly event at my venue Tractorgrease Cafe in Chilliwack.
I feel it's my calling to host Open Mics, it's so cool to see folks hit the stage for the first time!! It's not easy to bare your soul in front of a crowd. I've watched performers blossom into full time musicians on the open stages I provide and I've helped tick off some bucket lists.
Read the quotes below as a testimonial:
"Jeff creates a great atmosphere that’s accepting and fun for all ages. I just love how it’s for the pure enjoyment of music and sharing our joint passion in our community. "
" The Open mic hosted at the Slocan Lake Arts Centre once a month has amassed a following that continues to grow and inspire new artists to bring their talent to the stage. From local figures to musicians from across the valley the word is spreading, and every event brings in new people looking to experience the show and share their art.
Jeff Bonner is a gifted performer and host, and his ability to foster an atmosphere of encouragement and celebration paves the way for the audience to discover incredible talent that may have otherwise avoided the spotlight.
The regular performers never disappoint and each month the opportunity to discover new music grows, with folks from Revelstoke all the way to Trail coming down to enjoy the evening and play some tunes.
If you haven’t made it out yet you heard it here first, the Saturday night Open mic in Silverton is the place to be!!! "
Come on out and play your heart out!!!!!!
