Find Your Muse Open Mic is Charlotte's premier open mic night. Each week we feature a special guest performer from around the region. Come out and see some of the area's best up & coming talent perform their latest original tunes. Always a fun time, hosted by the semi-hilarious Mr. Erik Button. Look forward to the start of a great Monday night at 7:30pm as you are greeted by the rest of our FYM team; Aaaaron at the door, Donniebaseball behind the bar serving up cold ones, and Normal Dennis doing his best at making it all sound great from behind the board. Sign ups are at 7:45, so come out and get your time slot. Participate in The "Bad-Ass" of the Week, and maybe win a $20 gift card. Rush Morgan is an old soul at heart and a working man by trade. Getting his start in 2009 playing coffee shops in his hometown of Clemson, SC he's graduated to being a national touring artist and a locally renowned talent. Opening for acts like Taylor John Williams, Peter Bradley Adams, Smokey Brights, Calliope Musicals, and much more. With the release of his EP "River Stone" in 2017 he's begun to shake the roots of folk and soul. Morgan cut his teeth on the poetic lyricism of artists old and new such as Jackson Browne, Neil Young, and Mandolin Orange. They seem to have "spun a hushed, intimate series of songs into indelible melodies that moves from wistful folk-pop to warm, understated soul with the skill of a true musical omnivore." As an accomplished guitar player his hands never work alone. With influences from the languid guitar playing of John Mayer, B. B. King, and Stevie Ray Vaughn he's managed to obtain roots not only in old folk but old blues as well. He spent a year of his life living in Nashville cultivating and harvesting his songwriting chops as well as studying audio engineering and music business at Dark Horse Institute, forming the sharp point of the life he wants to live in music.
