Celebrating our 7th Anniversary!

7th-anniversaryIt’s hard to believe, but the June 3rd open mic marks the seventh anniversary of the Jam’n Java Open at Kickstand Café!  We are especially pleased to have Cosy Sheridan as our featured performer on this occasion. It’s not every day that we have a nationally renowned performer grace our stage!

We owe a special thanks to the owners and staff of the Kickstand Cafe for providing a home for us and for their support of the Jam’n Java Open Mic.

We look forward to many more years of welcoming, supporting, and applauding singers, songwriters, musicians, and lovers of live acoustic music.

Sign up to play or come listen to talented local performers.
Admission is free. All are welcome.
Food and beverages available for purchase.

Open mic performers can perform one or two songs each depending upon the number of people that sign up to play and a featured act performs a 30-minute set midway through the evening.

Open mic performers range from individuals simply wishing to share their music with others to aspiring local performers looking for a venue to try out new material and polish their performance skills. Our featured acts showcase some of the finest local acoustic performers in the area.
