Listing says that open mic starts at 7pm. Not true. Rick and his brothers play from 7-8:30/8:45, then open the mic up.

? Is this a singer/songwriter friendly open mic where someone could just get up and sing a couple of originals.

? Wondering if you accept keyboardists doing originals - I bring my own keyboard and stand - just need to hook it into a PA - would that work at your open mic? Thanks so much.

I stopped in last Monday and never pulled my guitar out of the car. I won't make that mistake again. It seems a little laid back, but I like laid back. The sound system seemed okay to me. No sign up list, but I think if your are sitting there with a guitar - I think the Guy running it will ask you if you want to pick. I am a want to be Songwritter and am looking foward to this Monday evening.
