All performers are welcome to participate in this event that has produced some of our brightest performers, including: Shawn Colvin, Dana Carvey, Alvin Youngblood Hart, and Patrick Landeza.

HERE'S HOW IT WORKS! One unique aspect of our Open Mic is that, unlike those held in noisy bars where people show up in spite of the fact that there's live music, you will be playing to a supportive group of friends and performers who are actually listening!!!

Nate Borofsky, Doris Muramatsu, and Ty Greenstein have been creating their own melodious language of three-part harmony driven folk-pop since 2003. Add to the gorgeous Girlyman vocals a quirky sense of humor and a great blend of contemporary folk, americana, and buoyant gender-bending pop—not to mention an infectious ability to have a good time—and you've got a show that's truly hard to resist.
