We do not pre-book. Just turn up early. We may shuffle the playing order, but who plays is based on arrival time. No favouritism. We allow three songs per act (occasionally more, never less), as most people need the first song just to get into the swing of things. There's usually a good number of great musicians willing to support nervous players.
Alleycats is an Open Mic Night - over 15 years old and still going from strength to strength, thanks to a loyal following of musicians (poets, etc) and audience members.
Even better, it has never stagnated, with a flow of fresh faces who have ensured that every Alleycats is always different and entertaining.
Many bands in Portsmouth have formed through meeting, playing, jamming, testing material and having fun at Alleycats. Above all, that is the key to what Alleycats is about - the chance to enjoy making music, regardless of your ability. If you love music, want to play to a supportive and appreciative audience - then Alleycats is for you.
