US and Canadian Open Mikes - by musicians, for musicians

First and third Thursday of the month at 6pm
Full Tilt Brewing
5604 York Road
Baltimore, MD

Come join Sam Teller every first and third Thursdays at Full Tilt Brewing! Sam will start the show with his band. Afterwards the open jam will commence, allowing audience members to play on the stage with other audience members and improvise. This is not an open mic. The band will play a halftime set and possibly close out the show at the end of the night.

The sign up sheet will be put out at 6pm. Volunteers can sign their names under their instrument of choice and time they wish to play. Don’t worry, you won’t be alone up there! The allotted time is 15 minutes. We will do our very best to fit in everyone who signs up! We may stay open as long as we are legally allowed to, provided that there is a crowd.

A full backline will be provided with microphones, amps, guitar, bass, keyboards, percussion and a drum set. We encourage you to bring your own instrument though! This is much more favorable. If you are going to use our instruments, we strongly suggest donating to our tip jar. Specifically, drummers should bring their own sticks, snare, or cymbals if they can. There will be a pedalboard supplied for the guitar backline. You may also bring your own pedalboard whether you are a guitarist, bassist, or a keyboardist.

We are still recovering from a pandemic and implore you to attend this event safely. If you are not sitting down you will be expected to wear a mask. Full Tilt is an open air facility that does contact tracing and regular sanitization to be safe as possible. It is a privilege and an amazing opportunity to support the music and the brewing industries right now, both of which suffered immensely during the pandemic.

We are going to keep this going in hopes of building a stronger community of musicians and live music fans in Baltimore. We want to create an inclusive and social environment based around the one universal chain of music that links all of us together. In order to do this, we seriously care for your individual support and attendance.

See you there!
