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!!!

A compelling vocalist whose rough-hewn voice brims with drama and humor, he can evoke the spirit of Fats Waller, Oscar Peterson, Mose Alison, and Jerry Lee Lewis—sometimes all at the same time.
