The Chance Theater has been hosting both national and local acts for as long as I can remember. It’s one of the most well known clubs in the Hudson Valley and beyond. When you think about the people who have graced the stage of The Chance, it’s mind-blowing. Bob Dylan, David Bowie, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Guns N Roses just to name a few.

Each act has two songs or six minutes to show what they can bring. Select acts will be invited to play a special showcase at The Chance.

The Open Mic Talent Search at The Chance will be hosted by songwriter Jerry Ebert, and sign up starts at 5:30PM. Anyone is welcome to come out and watch, and admission is free. Interested?
