RVCC Open Mic Event to Present Student Talent

Student and local talent will perform at Raritan Valley Community College’s “Speakeasy-Open Mic Night Event” this Wednesday 5:30-8:30 p.m. in the Atrium Lounge. The event is free, open to the public and presented by Student Life Activities & Planning (SLAP) Board and The Record.

Conrad Colon will kick-off the event with a stand-up comedy magic show. Colon has been practicing magic seriously for 7 years and serves as the Executive Vice President of the Student Government Association at RVCC.

Comedian Gordon Baker-Bone will then begin hosting the event. Baker-Bone is a Newark native and has been performing around the New York/New Jersey tri-state area for several years. Baker-Bone will perform a stand-up comedy act and then introduce an acoustic guitar performance by Al Guillen.

At 6:15 p.m. the judged open-mic competition will begin. The acts include poetry, guitar performances, piano performances, singing and rapping. Each performer has a 5-minute time limit. All of the judges are students and faculty at RVCC: Charlie Bondhus, Professor of English and Creative Writing; Jacqueline Skole, Adjunct Asstistan Professor, Communication & Languages; Nathan Bott, President of the Radio Club; and Sagar Solanki, President of the Imrpov Club.

After the last performance, the Improv Club will perform a comedic routine. Following this routine, attendees will have a chance to perform on stage.

This will be the first Speakeasy in a monthly series. Those interested in performing in the judged open mic may contact The Record at RVCCTheRecord@gmail.com.
