Yup, makes two performers. Lost the caricature artist as well. What else can go wrong? LOL  I shouldn't ask that, should I?

But I'm going to meet the restaurant owner tomorrow afternoon, so that'll be cool.

Bummer you've lost a performer. I think it's amazing you have as many as you do. Looking forward to hearing them all.

The 15 minutes time for OPEN MIKE is approximate, but should allow about three people to do one song each. We just lost another performer, so we have even more wiggle room as far as time goes.

I hope you do too, Rat.  Get up early and talk to Kevin and volunteer for it.   There are a whole lot of people on the schedule I want to hear.  Don't be late, the start off guy is fantastic and a real showman.

15 minutes of open mic? Hope to get one song in.

Hey, Kevin.  Thanks for doing this again.  A new venue.  I liked the old one, but feel excited about the new one.  Please count me in.
