The First Thursday Music Club

Free, relaxed open mic night in Thame in a great room, set up and run by Johnnie Littler from local band 2am Blue to allow everybody a chance to perform in front of a supportive audience.

It's mainly acoustic (although the odd sweet Strat lick has been known to sneak in to the mix!) We can'€™t do drum kits although various percussion boxes, scrapers and bangers are great!

SO WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT? It does not matter whether you are a virtuoso or a total beginner (there are often a few of each), the audience will be kind to you. The room is big enough to hold 100 plus, but small enough to feel comfortably filled on the quieter nights. Soft lighting and candles help to give the room its intimate feel.

We aim to be well run, reliable and to focus on great sound which is not too loud. We provide a relaxed, fun atmosphere to see a variety of mainly acoustic musical acts.

WHEN AND WHERE? The club runs on the first Thursday of every month from 8:00 p.m. - 11:30 p.m. at the Stables, behind the James Figg Public House, 21 Cornmarket, Thame, Oxon. OX9 2BL.

Acts play 15 minute/ 3 song slots. Walk ups please bring your instruments and sign up from 7:45 p.m. for a slot between 8:00 and 10:00 p.m. We have four booked acts in the final hour If you come as a listener, remember that anyone can pitch up and play, so don't expect everyone to be brilliant. We ask that you respect the people playing and allow them to be heard. If you want to chat then you can sit or stand at the back of the room by the dedicated bar. If you’re into listening and maybe fretboard watching to discover that magical chord then sit right down front.
