And to all the new faces, thanks for coming out, we hope to see you on the mic soon.

Apologies to anyone who did not get to do their song that night. With the raffle and the late signups we were pressed for time and couldn't fit everyone in. Sign up early next month and get your song in before anyone else does.

Check back with us later this week as we will upload the photos and videos from Saturday's event.

We will keep you posted about November's event as our date is not yet set.

Love, respect, peace & blessings
