Daniel Mack of Martin, GA and Clint Coker of Habersham County have won the October round of the Open Mic Monday competition that took place this past Monday night, October 16th at the Historic Ritz Theatre.
The three-judge panel consisted of veteran Atlanta radio personality Kelly McCoy, Ritz Theatre General Manager Keith Kozicki, and Toccoa musician David Shabat. Mack and Coker were the unanimous first place choice of the judges. The performances included a variety of live music, poetry and even stand-up comedy.
“It was another strong showing by our local area talent. We expect the next two Open Mic Monday events in November and December to continue showcasing some really outstanding performers.” according to Open Mic Monday emcee McCoy.
The next competition is Monday, November 20th at 7 PM. Open Mic Monday is held every third Monday of the month through December and is a free event. Interested performers can sign up by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or at the Historic Ritz Theatre on the evening of the show on a first-come, first-up basis. Contestants will play 3 songs or perform for 15 minutes, whichever comes first. Winners from each of the four nights will be invited back for a “Final 4” competition on January 22nd to determine the ultimate Open Mic Monday winner. The winning performer will get a paid gig as the opening act for the first Ida Cox music series performance in June of 2018.
The remaining dates are 11/20 and 12/18 with the final competition to be held on January 22nd, 2018.
