Roslindale Open Mike
How we can help
*** NO LIVE ROM TIL FURTHER NOTICE ***
Join us on line 2nd & 4th Mondays
Due to the Coronavirus situation, the Roslindale Open Mike (ROM) will not be meeting publicly until we know it will be safe.
This is consistent with the orders and recommendations of the City of Boston, the State of Massachusetts, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for social distancing.
We don’t do this lightly. Music and the ROM community are wonderfully healing medicine, but we need to do what we can to keep people safe.
Be careful out there—and wash your hands!
All our Love and thanks,
Neal Braverman and Mike Delaney

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.
