Special Events

The Monmouth Museum & Musicians on a Mission present:

SONGWRITERS & STORYTELLERS: CHANNELING WOODSTOCK – OPEN MIC & FOOD DRIVE at the Monmouth Museum, Lot #1, 765 Newman Springs Road, Lincroft, NJ from 6:30 – 9:30 pm.

Our special guest host will be musician, songwriter, guitarist and Woodstock attendee, Tommy Fuller. https://monmouthmuseum.org/

MOAM OPEN MIC FORMAT – Each performer is allowed 3 songs or 12 minutes (whichever comes first). You may only sign up for ONE 12-minute time slot. Twelve minutes is the TOTAL time on and off stage. All times are APPROXIMATE. Storytellers and poets will also be permitted 12 minutes.

Our theme will be music and stories about the now-legendary Woodstock festival that took place 50 years ago this month, which means you should do at least two songs that have to do with our theme, plus one more song (cover or original). Your chosen theme songs may be any song or poem that mentions anything about Woodstock, or a song that was sung at Woodstock that has special meaning to you, or even a song from one of the many artists who performed during those “3 Days of Peace & Music.”

Support for other performers is a priority for MOAM, so please show up early and stay late. There will be a grand finale song (THE WEIGHT by The Band) for everyone to share at the end of the event. Plan to stay for the finale. Lyric and chord sheets will be available for this song. Here’s a video with lyrics if you’d like to practice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RRrXThpctEw

Admission is a $5 donation at the door for all attendees, including performers. Since this is also a food drive, it is suggested that you bring non-perishable food donations – proceeds to benefit FULFILL, formerly known as the Food Bank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties. http://fulfillnj.org/

You do not need to be a member of MOAM to SIGN UP FOR THIS OPEN MIC.

Light snacks and refreshments will be served.
