Thank You's

​​All are Welcome!! No Cover!!

ROM meets the 2nd and 4th Monday of the month, 7pm-10:30pm


Our Golden Rule is “All are Welcome!!” We want a listening room, with a non-judgmental, supportive audience, that appreciates the diversity of our performers, from beginners to touring professionals. Everyone should be treated with kindness and encouraged to use their stage time to grow as a performer. Everyone is expected to listen politely to their fellow open mikers. Loud conversations should be conducted in the entryway or outside. 

We are all on a journey with a wide range of goals and aspirations.  We seek to help our caring community continue to thrive.



Virtual ROM!
