Reggae songstress Timeka Marshall will be making a special guest appearance at the Banks Open Mic series on April 8. This will be the first in the eight-week series of Thursday night sessions at Braddie’s Bar which start at 9 pm.

According to Lisa Howell, event coordinator and holistic vocal coach with Sing Vocal Arts: “ It is not an average open mic showcase.”

Howell, a seasoned performer, sees these events as an excellent forum for artist development. “In addition to promoting local and regional music and talent, they are a good way for artists to practice and develop their art and could be a proving ground for new talent or even material,” she said. “We are excited to have Timeka being a part of our first session and look forward to having guest appearance each week from artists in different genres.”

The free open mic series will focus on a different genre each week with the finale featuring the best acts from the previous seven weeks to compete for prizes.

We will be awarding prizes to those persons who are determined by trained professionals to have demonstrated both vocal and performance potential in their chosen genre,” she explained.

Each session will close with participants and those in attendance partying to the sounds of DJ Selecta Frost and DJ Supa High Voltage Sound System.
