Grass Roots Open Mic

Enjoy live music and support performers as they compete on stage. Contestants will show off their skills and perform a mix of covers and original songs at the Grass Roots open mic competition.

The judges are very keen to see who steps onto the stage this year after some amazing performance in 2023. The competition will be judged by Grass Roots founder and local musician Ben Ceccato, along with Luke Piccolo and Bonnie Owen, who have been judging the event since its inception in 2019.

Griffith Regional Theatre Manager, Marg Andreazza, said “What is better than a Sunday session to support local musos? We’re excited to see these artists step out on stage and show us what they’ve got - the music will be live and loud, and we’ll have the bar open for refreshments.”

Members of the public, as well as friends and families of the performers, are welcome to purchase a ticket to see the open mic event for only $10 each. Tickets can be purchased online below or at the door through the Box Office.
