All talent levels and music styles are welcome in this very friendly neighborhood setting with a focus on acoustic performers. Sign-up starts around 8:15pm. Since it's not a jam, your stage time is your own. Covers are cool. Full bands can be accommodated with advance notice, drum kit not provided. See the bar's site for details.

The Judge’s Bench offers drink and food specials too! Regular Open mic is held every Tuesday except for the 1st Tuesday of each month which is a Jazz Jam with another host.
