Jasper Hill Café & Bistro

This is a monthly open mic for young performers, which typically means young kids, pre-teens, teenagers, and older up through about 22, but I don't check IDs. The youngest performer I've had was probably 3 and the oldest was probably 83 (I bend the rules). My only hard rule is, if there are kids waiting to play, adults go last (or perform with one of the kids). While this started as an acoustic open mic, we've expanded and often feature a teen (or pre-teen) band to kick off the open mic. Styles of music range from punk, to pop, to folk, rap, classical, jazz, show tunes, and the occasional poet. We're kid friendly, so no profanity, please. Bands interested in being featured in a 30, 45, or 60-minute set, should contact Jasper Hill and they will put you in touch with the host. For feature acts playing more than 30 minutes, I start early, either 1:00 or 1:30PM to leave time for the other musicians. Bands have to bring their own gear. I provide a small PA (Bose L1) with 8 channels and a couple of vocal mics. The room holds 50, maximum, and that's standing room only.
