Benoni Folk Club: Open Mic Night Wednesdays in Benoni
By PAUL BOTHNER MUSIC | October 11, 2017
Finding a venue to play isn’t always the easiest thing to do. It’s hard enough when you’ve already polished your set and have everything ready to go. It’s near impossible if you want to test run a few new songs.
That is why open mic nights are so important to the music scene. Regardless of whether you’re looking to do your first performance, or looking to test a new set, open mic nights are the perfect solution. If you’re in the Benoni area, then you should check out the Benoni Folk Club.
The Benoni Folk Club
The Benoni Folk Club is specifically aimed at amateur performers. What sets them apart is that they don’t just cater to musicians. They’re open in the truest sense of the word.
If you’re a stand-up comic, a beat poet, story-teller, dancer – you name it – they have a slot for you.
Where: Tajine Moroccan Restaurant
36 Russel St, Benoni Central
When: Every Wednesday Night
Time: From 18H00 until 22H00
Cost: R20 for audience member, but performers get in for free

More Than Just Performances
Of course, this isn’t some open mic night in an old dingy warehouse. This is the kind of event you can go to and bring the kids along if you want.
The Tajine Moroccan Restaurant is a feast for the senses. They offer a delicate journey that combines subtle spicing, light chili and a variety of other choice ingredients to create an array of unique flavors.
So while you’re watching some of the best amateur performers in Benoni, you’ll be able to indulge in some light meals. In addition, a cash bar is available.
Do you want to book a slot to play at the Benoni Folk Club? Simply give Kevin a call on 082-545-8989 or Dylan on 061-459-4329. Or if you prefer email you drop a line to firstname.lastname@example.org.
