The Formanites Music Society has been arranging a great night, Open Mic Night, which is now almost known to everyone at FCC. First held on 7 December 2012, the nights consist of a house band performing, which includes the students of FCC.

This year, the new president, Shahrukh Khan Sherwani put all his efforts along with his team to make this night better and successful. The management worked really hard to make sure the night to be one of the bests. The house band worked really hard for this night, they chose songs then prepared those day and night to come up with amazing performances in the end. They worked in collaboration; the singers of the house band are of both western and eastern style. Instrumentals covered a wide repertoire including acoustic/bass guitars, keyboards, harmonium, violin, tabla, and Turkish drum (Djembe).

On 8 October 2013, FCC’s 4th Open Mic Night started with Hamza, Zaryab and Shahrukh’s original instrumental Spanish Alley, it was the best possible opening of a great show and it really amazed the audience, before that they could get over with the opening performance’s fun another mesmerizing duet performance by Nasir and Iqra rocked the show. After that notable performances by Mehboob (who performed Ankhon k sagar) and Fakhir’s performance on Kailash Kher’s ‘Saiyaan’ mesmerized the whole audience. Other performances of songs like ‘Bolo Bolo’, ‘Kabeera’, ‘With or without you’, ‘Dam Mast Qalandar’, ‘This Love’, ‘Manwa Re’, and ‘Tou Phir Aoo’ took the night to another level of enjoyment and joy.
