Racing through our eighth year!

Roslindale Open Mike

Roslindale Open Mike is racing through our eighth year! At the Roslindale Congregational Church (
25 Cummins Highway, Roslindale, MA.


​Announcements: Seeking Volunteers with Sound Systems!! We are hoping to rotate the responsibility for the sound system, because the sound system needs to be set up and ready to go by 7 pm and it is used until we are done at around 10:30 pm. If you would like to be included in this rotation, please let us know.

Also, thank you to everyone who has been so helpful continuing to make ROM an overwhelming success. We can always use whatever help you can offer. The “potluck” food approach for ROM is going great. We are so grateful for everyone who has brought something to share. We also truly appreciate all the help we are getting setting up and breaking down, and everything in between. As dear Friend David Roth has said "ROM is like an open mike on steroids!"; as a Community we continue to grow together!!

Jim Palana was born in Newport, RI.  He began performing in 1965 while still in high school, in the many coffeehouses and folk clubs in the Providence-Fall River-New Bedford-Newport area.  Few performers in those days had original material and Jim earned his first attention for the often humorous songs that he was writing.
