Presumed Suspended Due To Covid-19 Closures

April 9, 2020

We're assuming that most, if not all, of the non-virtual Open Mikes listed on this site are on hold for now. Rather than encourage anyone to go out for no good reason, we're marking all Open Mikes on-hold until we hear otherwise from the listing owners.

Matey's Bi-Weekly Open Mic/Jam (music, comedy, poetry)
Selected Saturdays at 9pm
110 Franklin Street
Michigan City, IN
Host: Kelsey Bolka and Nick Carpenter

The Open Mic/Jam takes place every other Sunday as follows:








And forwards on every other Sunday!!

If you know your way to Michigan City's public beach (Washington Park) then you know your way to Matey's! It's the big blue building right next to Galveston Steakhouse.

Sign-up starts as early as 8:30pm and performances start at 9:00pm and go on as late as they have to! Walk into the restaurant and we are located right there on the first floor either inside or on the patio.

We will usually have a house drum set, but we are on the search for an interested drummer available to play every week with their own equipment. There will always be at least 2 house guitarists, a house bassist, and your fellow performers to collaborate with.

Don't be shy! Come on out and share your talent with us!

Any inquiries or comments can be sent to Nick or Kelsey at
