About the Billingshurst ‘All Acoustic’ Music Club
Our ‘All Acoustic’ Music Club meets in the chapel on the first Friday of each month.
Mostly, we organise this as a ‘sing around’ which basically means people show up with something to perform and we sit around and listen. It’s very communal. Mostly, people rock up with an acoustic guitar but we we welcome unaccompanied singers or musicians of any instrument that doesn’t involve phaffing around with having to plug anything in. If in doubt, bring it anyway.
We ask for a donation of about £3.00 and any profit from any of the the evenings is donated to the upkeep of our building. We start promptly at 8.15 p.m. and if you would like to perform, it’s best to arrive a little before that so that you get a seat. Sometimes we are really busy, sometimes less so. After doing this for ten years I still can’t fathom why this is the case.
We ask performers to bear in mind that we operate out of a chapel. Raising a smile with an innuendo is fine but overt sexually or profane language and any content which may cause embarrassment, alienate members of our audience and land us in hot water with trustees (who do literally ‘trust’ us to use the lovely building responsibly) is not cool.
We like to encourage friendly, fair-minded and accommodating people who come musically prepared, seek to perform to the best of their ability and who take their music reasonably seriously, if not necessarily themselves!
We serve coffee and tea during the break and patrons may bring their own alcohol to drink in moderation.
