US and Canadian Open Mikes - by musicians, for musicians

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.

Open Mike @ The Well (music, comedy, poetry)
Selected Mondays at 8pm
The Well
1800 Rossville Ave.
Chattanooga, TN
Host: Shawnessey Cargile

Open Mic at The Well is a great opportunity to tweak your onstage performance skills, showcase new or experienced talent, network with other musicians and poets, or just share your voice in a supportive environment.

This is an ALL AGES show and ALL SKILLS night. We ask that you share your PG-versions of your craft :)

Cover songs/poems are allowed and original work is highly valued!

Open Mic sign-ups start at 7:30pm, first act goes on at 8pm.

There will be NO entry fee for performers or audience members. Two donation jars will be available for those wishing to donate to one, or both, of the following:

1) The operational costs of the open mic (avg. $50)

2) The monthly non-profit/cause

April - Epilepsy Foundation Southeast Tennessee

May - The Mission Chattanooga

June - Bethlehem Community Center

FEEDBACK FIRST is the theme for the 1st Monday of each month. Musical and poetic pros (prose), and both performers and critics (DJs, venue owners, etc.) will be on-hand to provide feedback/critique after each performers set. You can choose to receive this feedback while you are on stage, at the end of your set, or receive the feedback at the "Pros Table".
