Ready to throw an open mic Sydney will love? We'll sort the sign-ups, stage and sound system. You provide the beer.


A Welcoming Atmosphere


Established in 2010, The Big Foozle has long been an integral part of the ESS assemblage. Born from a desire to see the local community become more engaged with live music, ESS Director Kirk Burgess launched The Big Foozle to help emerging artists, whilst simultaneously lifting the profile of the venues we operate in.

Fast forward to today, and The Big Foozle operates hugely successful open mic nights across Sydney. Each night draws talented young musicians and singers to create an entertaining and welcoming space where people of all ages and skill levels feel at ease performing.

Thursday nights and Friday after-work drinks just got way smoother.

Test Your Music Against a Live Audience


Open mic nights let you showcase your talent with the support of other musicians and a flowing bar. Ride the buzz of Sydney's venues with an audience ready and warmed for you. Playing to a crowd in an informal setting takes the stress out of getting up on stage.

No more advertising on Facebook. Showcase your talents in Sydney's live music venues of note. Centre stage is yours. Let ESS get you there.

Stellar Performances From Sydney Musicians

Bring the blues of Sydney to your event, without the hefty fee of established artists. We vet all, so your event entertainment is always on-brand for your venue. Encouraging young acts to perform in your venue is the best way to build a professional network of great talent.



Karaoke, trivia nights, and spoken word poetry jams are great alternatives to live music open mics. Give us your brief and we'll recommend the styles and sessions most likely to get your bar bustling. From rock bands to acapella artists, the beautiful variety makes every ESS event unique.

Fun For All


We aim to provide performance and development opportunities for musicians and singers of all ages, from amateur hobbyists to seasoned professionals. It is our belief that music should be fun and exciting for both performers and audiences alike, regardless of age or experience level. By taking the fear out of live performance in a low-pressure, supportive environment, we can create fabulous nights and unforgettable experiences for all.
