Open Mic Night returns to Camberley Theatre

Open Mic Night returned for a second instalment at Camberley Theatre on Wednesday last week. The event welcomed a variety of musicians of all ages. From local bands, vocalists, guitar players, pianists and even ukuleles; there really was something to suit everyones taste.

The event took place in Camberley Theatre’s, CT’s Bar. With an intimate, warm setting that plays host to a mini-grand piano, CT’s was the perfect place for performers and audience members alike.

First to take to the mic was a return performance from fifteen year old ukulele player Matthew Quilliam from Yately. He performed three songs, one of which was George Formby’s ‘Andy The Handyman’. He then went on to play one of his own songs, an instrumental ‘Chordall Company’. Being an accomplished player and songwriter, Matthew’s performance was well received by the audience.

The event also saw a set from local guitarist and singer-songwriter Johny Mac who in addition to his own songs covered Davie Bowie favourite ‘Kooks’. Piano and vocalist duo Andy Hogbin and Tricia Ramage took centre stage with the classic Queen song ‘Spread Your Wings’ and Abba’s ‘Mamma Mia’. If that wasn’t enough, Nu-folk ukulele player Nathan Agate sang his own unique version of the much loved Bruno Mars song ‘Just The Way You Are’ as well as his own song ‘Hold Me Tight’.

Camberley Theatre Open Mic Nights occur on the third Wednesday of every month at 8pm and are free to attend. The next Open Mic Night will take place on 23 March.
