See The Rules page for more info.
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.
