Cuckoo is hosting an Open Mic night this weekend – and The Voice are coming to look for singing talent for its new 2017 series.

This Sunday (April 10), Conor Scott who appeared in one of the early series of the hit show in 2013, is hosting the Open Mic night which welcomes solos, duos and trios with all music styles welcome.

Since Conor appeared on the show, the talent show have taken huge interest in Cuckoo’s open mic night and tried to spot local talent to appear on their show.

General Manager of Cuckoo James O’Donnell told us why he believes so passionately in supporting talent: “I take pride in the fact that some of the local bands that you see performing in venues around Belfast started performing in our Open Mic night and now make a living from music.

“There is so much talent in and around Belfast and that is why nights like our Open Mic Night must continue to help nurture and build confidence to those who need it so that they can go on and perform on a regular basis.

“This will be the only time The Voice will be here this year, so if they want a chance they need to be here this Sunday!”

Cuckoo’s Open Mic night runs monthly on the first Sunday of every Month (this month’s was re-scheduled to cater for The Voice).


Every performer gets two free beers for playing and it’s just a case of come down and sign up on the night to perform.

James adds: “It’s not just singers that come down, we’ve had stand up comedians, poetry readers & musicians who just come down for a jamming session. Everyone is welcome!”
