I have in recent months been attending various venues which hold open mic nights , these are wonderfull events , in which new musicians and also experienced players can meet and play and also jam which is my favourite part . I have met so many nice people and great musicians through these events . there are not that many keyboard players that go , so I get to play with loads of different bands and solo artists I love it .My main night is Fretz in southend Essex UK their page is on facebook.
