Open Stage Evenings


Many wonderful musicians have shared their music on the Fiddler's Dream stage over the years. Our open stage began in 1996! Our Open Mic Night is an Open Stage Night, as we are completely acoustic, so there aren't any mics...just a whole lot of good music, and an appreciative audience! Our incorporating charter allows acoustic only performances, although we do have a lovely electric piano for you to play. Playing recorded music or using a battery or wall powered sound enhancement device is also prohibited.  You may play originals or covers, all are welcome. 

We’ve made a few changes in the New Year, hoping to improve the experience for our performers and our audience! Doors open at 6:00 pm, and we start playing at 6:30 pm. If you arrive by 6:30 pm, you will be in the first rotation. If you arrive after 6:30 pm, you will be added to the list under the red line, and play in the second round / rotation. We do a one-song rotation and a time limit of no more than 4 minutes per turn. Stick around, everybody plays! 

Play your turn - there are no substitutions or giving your turn to another performer. Give the performer their turn: unless you are invited to play with the performer, please don’t play-along with your instrument. Join the audience and listen! And please don’t play music outside, except to tune your instrument or quietly warm up a bit. Since we are all acoustic, sound does carry inside! 

As with all Fiddler’s Dream events, we ask that you turn your cell phone off, or set to “vibrate.”  We discourage the use of cell phones in the performance area.   Please do not audio or video record a performer without their permission.  Please be respectful of the performers and the audience by not engaging in conversation during performances.  And feel free to connect with other musicians; it is a great venue to try out new material or a new take on old material!

Admission is $5. Thank you for having fun with us!
