Some of the greatest music was performed live before finally pressed onto vinyl.  Imagine the evolution of your favorite song from the first pen stroke on paper to the final vinyl recording.

The Originals at Charlton’s is an evolution of our Open Mic Tuesday.

Hosted by The Guitar Room’s legendary musician Derek Ferwerda, Charlton’s Open Mic Tuesday is the most original Open Mic in the north Atlanta Area.   Our Open Mic has been called a refreshing change to the usual as not only is the music and drink great, but the food is amazing.

It is amazing to watch music legends encourage younger Artists that grace our stage.  Cassie Gibson is an up-n-coming singer/songwriter was performing when percussionist, singer and songwriter Bradie Speller jumps behind his bongos to enhance her performance.  We have seen some amazing Artists from a 14-year-old on a Ukulele to female guitarist at 48 testing the possibilities.

Often Artists are seen off stage sharing and networking but when they hit the stage together, it is quite amazing to witness the rise of musicality to a level that words fail to capture the reality.  After one jam session, an Artist in the audience said, “what you just saw there would be a $200 ticket.”

When talking about live music, many venues do popular cover songs and expect the Artists to perform these songs with no Originals.  The simple reason is that people listen to cover songs they know and not a song the public has never heard or is not perfect.

It is hard for an Artist to evolve a song when playing in front of a mirror.  The Originals at Charlton’s purpose is to provide an intimate venue designed for original music and the evolution of that music.

Rock, Blues, Acoustic, Bluegrass, Country, Americana, Folk, Indie/Alt, Jazz, Rap or Instrumental are welcome to grace the stage at Charlton’s.

If interested in performing, it is highly suggested you sign-up to play on our Open Mic Tuesday.
