Woodclef Open Mic Concert
Woodclef Open Mic Concert is a night with a blend of music, comedy, dance and drama.Our plan is to make this platform the biggest platform in Nigeria for promoting gospel music, comedians, dance group and drama. This is in line with Woodclef?s vision which is: ?To promote gospel music and music business, by providing musical products and services through our innovative and educative programs and ideas that are vital to society?s quality of life, in a professional and godly manner, while aspiring to be the company of choice for such products and services in Africa and beyond?
An open mic (or open mike) is a live show where audience members may perform at the microphone. Usually, the performers sign up in advance for a time slot with the host or master of ceremonies. These events are typically focused on performance arts like poetry and the spoken word, music, and comedy.
Comedy open mic nights can be held at established comedy clubs, but are more commonly held at other venues with or without a stage, often the upstairs or back room of a pub or bar. Such nights give newer acts an opportunity to practice and improve. More experienced acts get an opportunity to work out newer material where the audience is not paying in anticipation of seeing their normal act. In a typical open mic night, newer acts will get five or maybe ten minutes of stage time, but more experienced acts may get ten or more minutes
Poetry and spoken word open mics feature a host, who is normally a poet or spoken word artist, poets and spoken word artists, and audience members. A sign-up is done before the show begins, so that the host has a list of names to call from. Poetry/spoken word open mics are laid back, serene, and contain lively conversation in between readers and/or performers. They are usually held in libraries, coffee houses, cafes, and book stores or bars. Each poet or spoken word artist is often asked to keep their performances to a minimum/specified time slot, giving each performer enough time to share some of their work.
These shows provide an opportunity for musicians to gain experience performing to a live audience without having to go through the process of getting normal music gigs, which is very difficult to do without experience of live performance.
Open mics have been gaining in popularity in recent times, providing a much-needed outlet for singer-songwriter Prior to their popularity, the only outlet generally were folk clubs, which were not always friendly towards creators of new music, preferring traditional music. They also suggested that music performed by acoustic musicians or solo artists in this manner would necessarily be folk music, a misconception that still commonly exists today. Some organizers have chosen the title "acoustic night" or "acoustic club" in an attempt to indicate an event run broadly on the lines of a folk club, but with a much wider range of musical styles.
Unlike other open mic concerts, Woodclef Open Mic Concert combines music, comedy, dance, drama and educative talk show, where we will always bring those who have made a land mark in the gospel music industry to share their idea, and experience with those who are up coming. We strongly believe that, this will enable gospel music to grow faster and better in Nigeria and will understand the nitty-gritty of the process we need to follow for gospel music to go viral in Nigeria.
