Open Mic Monday

Welcome to Open Mic Mondays at Aurora Borealis!

21+

DOORS: 6pm

List compiled: 6:50pm

Open mics will be a mix of comedy and acoustic musical performances throughout the night. The performance list for both will be drawn as names from a hat prior to the event. The list will be compiled at 6:50pm. If you are late you may be added to the list if there are open spots. If not you will need to wait till the end of the list if possible to get a slot. We do not take early reservations for performances to give everyone fair opportunity to perform.

Comedy performances max out at 7 minutes which leaves approximately 12 spots open for performance. This may change based on length of performances and quantity of performers. If we complete the list and there is still time available we will start back at the bottom of the list or add new comers to fill the time.

Acoustic musical performances max out at 3 songs or 20 minutes. This may change based on length of performances and quantity of performers. If we complete the list and there is still time available we will start back at the bottom of the list or add new comers to fill the time. We do not have any sort of instrumental back line in house so all artists must bring their own instruments.

We will have mics, stands, stools, chairs and even a light and sound tech to help make everything sound great. We will use a flash of light or word of mouth to let you know that you have one minute of performance left. Please be respectful of all artists and be aware of your set ending. If we feel an artist is taking too much time we will cut sound and transition into the next artist. We look forward to seeing what you’ve got!

Cory Vincent Acoustic Set

What do you get when you combine the hard edged, dreary sounds of the Pacific Northwest with the soulful, southern themed voicings of the blues? The fans of Cory Vincent have appropriately coined it, “Grunge Blues.”

Drawing inspiration from genre-blending trailblazers like Neil Young, Jimi Hendrix, and Jack White; Cory’s songwriting is a throwback to an era where the song was the king. His ability to write straight from the heart, impactful lyrics, along with innovative yet familiar guitar riffs, sets Cory apart from most.

Born and raised in the small town of Sedro-Woolley, Cory’s passion for music and songwriting began at young age, with a heavy influence of Country music from legends like Hank Williams, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, and Garth Brooks. It wasn’t until the age of 13, when his father brought home the Stevie Ray Vaughan album “Texas Flood,” that Cory decided to pick up the guitar. Often saying that there are way too many influences to list, Cory sums up his guitar background as follows- “I play guitar because of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath) changed the way I thought about guitar, and Warren Haynes confirmed it all!”

Cory has played all over Western Washington in numerous bars and clubs, as well as, some of the regional festivals in the area; sharing the bill with acts like- The Steepwater Band, Popa Chubby, Walter Trout, and Southern Avenue.

Whether it be an intimate acoustic setting in a small crowded bar room; or a powerhouse, guitar heavy performance on a festival stage; fans of every age are taken aback by Cory’s ability to “make you wanna stop and listen.” With his powerful yet tasteful guitar playing, and soulful vocals that come straight from heart, Cory brings a depth to his performances that none can ignore.
