A few years ago, after getting "burned out" in New York, Return of Simple frontman Rob Kovacs moved back to Cleveland and relaunched the popular indie rock band.
Now, Kovacs has just announced that he’ll host a monthly Singers’ Night at Bar 107 in Berea. The first event takes place at 8 p.m. on Wednesday.
The event will feature local singers taking turns getting up on stage to perform a song while Kovacs accompanies them on piano. Singers are encouraged to bring sheet music or choose from Kovacs’ song list. Lyrics aren’t provided but performers can bring their own if needed.
Each month will feature a new local singer who will perform a short set. Cleveland actor and singer-songwriter Mikey Silas will be this week’s featured vocalist. He also sings and performs in his own band, Apostle Jones.
“I’m really hoping to help bring the community together and give singers of all levels a chance to perform and try new things in a fun and supportive setting,” says Kovacs in a press release announcing the event.
Sign-ups for the night will begin at 8 p.m. with the first singer of the night kicking things off at 8:30 p.m. The events are free.
