Roslindale Open Mike- Deb Galiga
Deborah’s distinctive original songs, powerful vocals and musical sophistication create engaging performances. She is known for creating strong rapport with audiences with her sense of humor and theatrical flair. A refreshing singer/songwriter, Deborah accompanies her singing with keyboards and guitar. She plays original folk/pop/rock (“fopock?”), selected songs from the 1960s and jazz standards. This year, she will release her second CD, which is produced and arranged by Deborah. It features the work of many great local musicians. She has played at Porchfests in Jamaica Plain and Roslindale along with other fine musicians for several years, as well as the Roslindale Farmer’s Market and Library. An alumna of Berklee College of Music, her long career includes performances in scores of coffeehouses and clubs, including Passim and the Paradise, and appearances on radio shows. She has been a member of many rock bands, providing lead vocals, keyboards and bass. Thank Yous... Thank yous go out to the Boston School of English, the Roslindale Congregational Church, Brian Higgins and Family of the F. J. Higgins Funeral Home for their years of help and donations to ROM.

THE REGULAR DETAILS: The Roslindale Open Mike (ROM) is held on the second and fourth Mondays of the month at The Boston School of English, 814 South Street, Roslindale, MA 02131. This is on the other side of Roslindale Square from the previous location. Parking: Park on the street--be careful for "Residents Parking Only" signs. We have not been able to verify if free parking is allowed in the Commuter Rail lot after 5 pm. You can park there for $4 after 5 pm, or take your chances on a ticket or towing. Or, park in the lighted public parking on Tafthill Terrace. All are Welcome!! No Cover!! Our Golden Rule is “All are Welcome!!” We want a listening room, with a non-judgmental, supportive audience, that appreciates the diversity of our performers, from beginners to touring professionals. Everyone should be treated with kindness and encouraged to use their stage time to grow as a performer. Everyone is expected to listen politely to their fellow open mikers. Loud conversations, tuning, and practicing, should be conducted in the entryway, the sanctuary, or outside. We are all on a journey with a wide range of goals and aspirations. We seek to help our caring community continue to thrive. THE RULES: Roslindale Open Mike (ROM) uses a random draw of names to set the order of performers. Our goal is to be fair, equitable, and consistent. The names are randomly drawn from the basket of names at 6:40 PM. As a courtesy to people coming from work or from a distance, early signups are accepted by Neal via email only at neal@roslindaleopenmike.org up until noon of the ROM Monday. Anyone arriving after the names are being drawn are added to the end of the list in the order of arrival. People with special needs (as defined by ROM) or who have indicated that they will be arriving late will be accommodated if possible. First timers are given their choice of a slot. After the performance order has been drawn, any swaps for an earlier or later slot may be arranged between the people requesting the swap, but only Neal, or his designee, will change the performance order on the board. Anyone who misses their slot due to late arrival will be accommodated at some point after they arrive. Everyone will get to play one song (NO LONGER THAN 5 MINUTES including your introduction!) and if we finish the first round before 10PM some willing participants may get a second song using the same performance order. This should allow everyone to perform before it gets too late, with an ending time goal of 10:30 PM at the latest. Everyone is requested to be tuned up and ready to go when it is their turn and to keep song introductions brief. Everyone is requested to maintain a listening room atmosphere and is encouraged to be courteous and respectful of all performers. Doors open at 6 PM and the open mike performances start at 7 PM, with our evening feature act at 8:30 PM. We pass the "NOT-HAT" (because it's not a hat, it's a MASSIVE BUCKET!) for the feature. Mike usually has his "practice session" at 6 PM. So, show up early, stay ‘til late, or drop by when you can. All refreshments are at NO COST but there is a donation basket, all of which is given to the school to thank them for offering this great venue. This is an all-volunteer effort, so we would love for you to help out making this open mike a success. Would you like to help us set up, host, mix sound, clean up, etc? Please consider bringing some food or beverages to share. (And of course this open mike is FAMILY FRIENDLY: non-alcoholic, drug-free, non-smoking and no inappropriate language. Please don't smoke on the school grounds--we don't want to lose this venue due to cigarette butts.) When he's available, Steve Friedman of Melville Park (www.melvillepark.com) will be there to record your performance for your upcoming live CD. You can email Neal (neal@roslindaleopenmike.ORG) or Mike (mike@mikedelaney.org) with suggestions on how to make the nights better and better.
