It’s always a great adventure to hear the songs singers bring to an Open Mic. This February’s Open Mic seemed ripe with love songs — as Valentine’s Day was just a few days later in the week.
There were traditional love songs and some non-traditional ones sung. But, as an audience member said — “it was all about love”.
The DC Cabaret Network Open Mic was held Feb. 10 at the Warehouse with Jeff Tucker on sound and Reenie Codelka as musical director.
