How it works

Perform on OMA: 

how it works

  • OMA is a showcase primarily for the live performance of original songs. We also allow performance of songs published prior to 1925; we call these "Heritage" songs. Shows are two hours, feature 8-10 performers and happen on the 1st and 3rd Sundays at 5:00 PM Pacific Time.

  • At showtime, performers meet with our hosts on a private Zoom channel. The show is streamed live to the public on YouTube. The link is on our home page... "Live on YouTube".

  • OMA is intended to be the "big Leagues" for the more accomplished Open Mic performer. Our recruiters issue invitations to solid performers. Performers that we haven't "found" yet can gain membership by submitting an audition video. If your material is a good fit for Open Mic America, you will be emailed with a booking date and general Zoom info. A few days prior to the show, you will again receive the same booking email along with a show poster. The day before the show, you will receive a further email with the actual Zoom link that will get you in the show.

  • More details in our Green Room and on our Guidelines page.

  • New performer Signup

  • Returning performers need not re-audition. They simply Request a Spot to appear on the show again.
