Open Mic Sign Ups for Cali-Fest 2019

Friday, February 1, Saturday February 2 and Superbowl Sunday February 3.

The biggest and bestest virtual, fake and phony fest we know of.  It's in our heads. Be there or be square. Be there or be somewhere else. Richard Sundberg has lots of big name acts signed up for the Monterrey Stage on Friday and Saturday nights, but all of us can take open mic opportunity at the smaller venues.

Please sign up in the comments section. Two song limit. Be ready to plug and play when your assigned time slot is up. 15 minute maximum. If time slots are still available, you can sign up at the fest.

Special Offers: one free pawn shop restroom pass for anyone playing at the open mics. Play at several open Mics and get a pass each time.

Schedule:

Anything Goes One - OPEN Mic on the James Brown Stage - Friday February 1 from 8PM until ????? Hosted by Richard Sundberg.

Hank Williams Open Mic on the Bocephus Stage. Saturday 1-4pm. Hosted by Uncle John.

Jug Band Open Mic on the Memphis Jug stage. Saturday 1-4pm hosted by Dave Lynas.

Comment by Jim Morris on January 23, 2019 at 2:31pm

Cool! Put me down as the Sunday morning gospel host. Gospel song coming soon. Also, sign me up for Hank's "I Can't Help It If I'm Still In Love With You"

Great Uncle! We can play through the tunes together out in the Sonora looking for water and food stashes. Bring your pistol. I’m over the Iowa line without the usual body search and cavity check. Should pull into Harlan by midnight. Better write Linda a note. She’ll be POd otherwise. Trucks running good.

Hi Uncle John,

Thanks for putting me down to perform the British national anthem at the opening ceremony. Unfortunately, owing to the confused state of British politics, this will be a 6-song set in an attempt to keep everyone happy, though I suspect some won't be.  I will perform:

God Save the Queen, Land of Hope and Glory, Scotland the Brave, Land of My Fathers, Londonderry Air (Danny Boy) and Europa (Ode to Joy - the European anthem).

You might want me to start around 5am so that I'll be done by the time anyone else turns up.

All the best,  Digly :-)

Uncle, for this event, I’ll virtually be in two places at the same time! I will need James Brown’s fast foot movement! I do assume after 8PM the chill in the air will clear out nude beach. I definitely will recruit Derek Rose to perform, hope he owns a tie! You are amazing Uncle, well done!

Comment by Uncle John on January 22, 2019 at 9:22am

We will put you down for two songs, Dog.  Your choice.  Call again if you like.  I flipped the cassette in the answering machine.

I tried to sign up for the heavy metal open mic. but the answering machine ran out of tape before I could post.

Dave, I can play kazoo on Virtual man and Iowa Sax on Snowbird' Blues.  If you'll have me.

I am really looking forward to the fest and hope that Richard has some things better organized.  I was a bit disappointed last year in the small number of talent scouts and that I did not get to meet Cher or Madonna.
