Yes it's still going strong… Last Thursday of every month. Only for high school and college age students, but they don't check ages! See


The same place also holds all-ages open mikes four times a year. See their website at… It's a venue that's presented professional entertainers every Friday night for 40 years!

Tony says the crowd wasn't ready for them? He and his vocalist went first (they were pretty good!), but they must of left early. They were followed by at least 15 groups of rock, jazz, rap, folk, punk and even poetry. As usual a little of everything. Mostly good (maybe except me). Then he said there was mostly christian music. Nada. I only remember one guy doing christian. One girl slammed religion pretty hard in a poem. They dont even bitch if you use some cuss words. It's in a church but it must be a pretty cool church. The thursday open mikes are just for college and high school kids. Where else can we go to perform in such a famous music place? He's right about one thing, the ppl who run it are really nice. And the jam session at the end was awesome!

Really REALLY small, played there last night and its safe to say that the crowd was not really ready for what me and my voclaist played. The rest of the acts were like christian music and ours was acoustic rock. But other than that the crowd was nice and the guy that runs it is very nice

Coffee House is located in the basement of a church. It is a rather small room with a low ceiling and tiled floors, but it has tons of folk history. Playing there is a rite of passage. You need to get there early to sign up, but it is a great place to play.
