Liverpool Acoustic Open Mic relaunches 1st September with new partner K’s Choice
Following a summer break the double award-winning Liverpool Acoustic returns to Sound Food and Drink next week to relaunch the popular, weekly Open Mic with new co-hosts K’s Choice.
Every Monday from 1st September Sound Food and Drink will be home to the Liverpool Acoustic Open Mic, with alternate weeks being hosted by Liverpool Acoustic’s Three Minute Hero (Stuart Todd) and new partner K’s Choice (Derek King).
Each night follows the same regular format with two or three booked acts playing between the ever-popular open mic slots. Musicians wanting to pre-book a slot can either turn up before the 8.30pm start time or reserve one online by posting a request on the facebook event page at facebook.com/liverpoolacoustic/events
The launch night on Monday 1st September is hosted by K’s Choice and sees performances from Futurejack, SheBeat, Cal Ruddy, and Gary Maginnis and The Like. Monday 8th September is hosted by Three Minute Hero.
Liverpool Acoustic’s Graham Holland says, “Stuart and I are delighted to welcome Derek King and K’s Choice as official Liverpool Acoustic partners for our weekly Open Mic night at Sound Food and Drink. Like us, Derek is passionate about supporting the local music scene and in addition to hosting his own series of acoustic music nights over the years has also found time to curate two compilation CDs under the banner K’s Choice: The City of Music. Derek is ‘Liverpool Acoustic’ through and through, and we’re more than happy to have him on board.”
