    Default Seasonistas on-line get together / open mic

    A few of us have tried online sessions in recent weeks, and after a bit of nudging I have set one up myself.

    See below for the next date & time!!

    If you haven't used Zoom before, it is worth signing up and installing it on your PC/device first, from https://zoom.us/. Painless and free.

    All Seasonistas, past & present, welcome! I will try to run it along the lines of an open mic session, with one person singing a song, and the rest of us (muted, to avoid horrible delays) can listen or join in, in the safe knowlege that nobody else can hear them! Then everyone gets un-muted for wild applause, and on to the next person. That's the plan. But I have never run a Zoom meeting before, so it could be chaos.

    Update - the next session is booked for Saturday August 8th, 20:30 London time (GMT+1)

    Time: Aug 8, 2020 08:30 PM London

    I'm in!

    My local open mic is running a virtual night tonight, except we're all just taking turns live streaming to the Facebook group. I like this idea much better as you have an actual audience.

    Really looking forward to it.

    will see when the time comes if I will be able to make it. It is around the time I go to sleep as I am a night owl.

    I like that idea - I have been using Zoom at work, it is easier than one thinks

    Looks like my clock sums were wrong, and it will be 8am on the West coast of USA.

    Should love to give it a try, Steve ... but I'm not at all sure that my Internet is up to it! What are we supposed to be playing????

    The idea of an open mic is to play what you like. The stage is yours to do what you want with it during your set.
