Remember, any material, on or off theme, is always welcome at Salon.

We have an in-house videographer offering professional, website & YouTube ready video clips for anyone who is interested. The cost is $20 in cash per song – payable in advance at sign-up. If you wish to participate, just let one of The Mamettes know. This service is completely optional.

Salon is an ongoing open entertainment event in which singers, writers and musicians share their talent with each other and audience members. There is a $10 cash cover ($5 for students with I.D.) collected at the door and a 2-drink minimum (cash or credit) per person.

Doors open and sign up begins at 6:30pm. The evening runs 7-9:30pm without a break. If you would like to sign up to perform, see one the evening's 'Mamettes' to fill out a card with your name, the name of your song, whether or not Mark will be playing for you and any upcoming events you'd like to promote. We do not present performers in order of sign-up, however, indicating requests as clearly and as early as possible as far as time restraints are concerned always makes everything much more possible. 

ALWAYS BRING SEVERAL SONG SELECTIONS to avoid duplication. All types of material, on or off theme are always welcome at Salon. We enthusiastically welcome instrumentalists, poets, playwrights, essayists, comics, illusionists and performance artists. Please limit your selections to three or four minutes in length (including introductions). Please also bring clear, complete charts for Mark to read. Flash photography is not allowed. Please turn off all noise making devices and give performers your undivided attention.
