TL Publishing Group LLC

open mic night

Date: Saturday, July 28, 2018

Time: 8 PM - 11 PM

Location: The Bunker

Join TL Publishing Group and the Tampa community as we celebrate poetry and the arts with our open mic event. Our open mic events are always family friendly and provide an open platform that welcomes all types of artists. In the past, numerous singers, musicians, bands, comedians, poets, spoken word artists, and storytellers have blessed our audience and left the microphone in flames.

If you have a talent (singing, musician/band, comedian, poet, spoken word, etc), make sure you come out and sign up. We welcome and support all types of first-timers and experienced artists. 

Our Open mic is from 8 PM until 11 PM. Sign up starts at 8:00. There will also be free raffle prizes throughout the night!

NOTE: This is a free event open to the public. However, parking in the lot directly behind The Bunker is $6.00 on Saturdays.

Our host: We have the amazingly talented R.J. Kerker as our special host for this event!

R.J. is a long time supporter of the arts community in Tampa, Florida. He co-hosted open mic nights at Café Kili for several years before retiring to focus on musical projects. He is a member of the American Song Box band. They have a wonderful acoustic rock sound that is original and unique. They have performed at various venues across the Tampa Bay area with more shows forthcoming.
