For more open mics in Manchester, go here:manchester open mics

Joshua Brookes holds an open mic in the top area every Wednesday. Acts play leisurely, longer sets, of a few songs of 15-20 minutes. You’ll find an array of excellent musicians here.

The night is run by two gentlemen Dan and Lee. Dan is himself an outstanding guitarist. Arrive early and you might hear him play.

    Very useful site by the way! …just wondering if Joshua Brooks allow bands to play on Monday’s open mic nights? We played at The Thirsty Scholar’s Wednesday ‘Jam night’ the other week and are looking for somewhere similar to play a set of about four or five tracks for live experience.

    Hi Adam

    Yeah, last time they were pretty cool with that I think… haven’t been there for a while though! You should talk to Rory and Lee at the Thirsty scholar, because Lee is also involved with Joshua Brooks… I can email your details at some point fi you like. I’m actually in New York at the moment, doing a few gigs (and open mics!) so might have to wait till I’m back in the UK!

    Have you got a myspace? We’re looking for another act for “Songs for the Bath Tub” at Fuel on Thursday…
