Below is a recollection of Roslindale Open Mike's humble beginnings by founding partner Mike Delaney.

The thread that led to Roslindale Open Mike (ROM) began around 1994 at  Java Jo's coffee shop in East Milton...


The Roslindale Open Mike (ROM) is held on the second and fourth Mondays of the month.

All are Welcome!! No Cover!!

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.

Roslindale Open Mike is beginning its tenth year, now located at

The Boston School of English

814 South St., Roslindale, MA 02131.
