About Ignite

If you had 5 minutes on stage what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds?

Around the world geeks have been putting together Ignite nights to enlighten us – quickly.

Open Mic Etiquette

Brian Hinderberger



I'm a proud father and husband, active musician and web geek. I confess that I am addicted to open mics and would love the opportunity to explain why.

Tap Tap Tap, the mic is hot and it's your time to shine on stage. That song you practiced in the garage is ready to introduce to the world. But are you? Open mics... You see them listed in arts and entertainment line-ups for various clubs and bars around town. But what exactly are they? Do they have rules or do's and don'ts? Brian will offer his unique perspective on this, being a musican who is truely addicted to Open Mic'n. He'll explain how you, and your audience, can have a good experience
