The Real Open Mic Hosted by Skandizzle

Got a chance to attend The Real Open Mic hosted by Skandizzle Tuesday night at the Mad Frog. It was a pretty good turnout with some unique performances. There were a lot of female artist who came out and represented and even a group, Fly Guy Club, from Indiana. The night was organized professionally which included an artist development session, live performances, and a grand prize winner selected by Jeffrey Royce to participate in the Make My City Proud Talent Showcase.

A couple of artist from IndieByChoice that came out include Cargo #1 Dirtbagg, Flame, and Miss Gunz. We love to catch live performances, so if you have an event let us know. We will try to come out and support independent artist from all genres.

We have a great performance below from Fly Guy Club The Beige Team and Skandizzle for all of you who couldn't make it out. You can also catch the live performances yourself every Tuesday at the Mad Frog located 1 E McMillan St. in Cincinnati, Ohio.
