We need your help... Fidds is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, and our coffeehouse engine needs volunteers to keep it running. Please consider helping out - greeting guests with a smile, making and pouring coffee and drinks, taking admission and even being an emcee. And you will get free admission for the night! What a deal!
To find out more about being a Fiddler's Dream Volunteer, contact our volunteer coordinator by SMS-texting your contact info to 602-997-9795. If you don't have a mobile phone, call and leave a message on our VMS at that same number. It's that easy!
$5 admission. Doors open at 6:00 pm. Order of play determined by order of arrival. One song per rotation.
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!
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!
We discourage the use of cell phones in the performance area. Please turn them off or set to "vibrate". Please do not audio or video record a performer without their permission. Additional information is here.
Admission is $5. Thank you for having fun with us!

Saturday August 17 ~ The Sequels CD Release Concert Night! Music begins at 7pm ~
7:00 pm: The Sequels – a group of high school students from the Arizona School for the Arts (ASA) - were founded in 2018 by Helena Haber (piano, flute, percussion, vocal), Kellen Vu (piano, guitar), Margaret Shepherd (viola, vocal), and Elaina Van Duyne (lead vocal) after Elaina wrote a song inspired by the classic school book, Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger.
Their first recording was published on to YouTube, where it became a hit among the ASA community. After that, new songs followed, and they adopted Megan Teramoto (cello) into the band.
As the members of the band put it, "our songs are inspired by our favorite books you probably hated reading in high school" – a unique concept of capturing the spirit of books as personal reflections expressed in songs.
The Sequels have performed for various events - ASA Shooflies, ASA Shindig Night, and Girls Rock! Phoenix, among others - around the Phoenix area, such as at the renowned Crescent Ballroom and Valley Bar.
Their debut album “FAST FOREWORD” captures eight captivating songs of which six are written based on the books Catcher in the Rye, Song of Solomon, As I Lay Dying, The Great Gatsby, Brave New World, and The White Tiger.
On Saturday, August 17, the Sequels will perform their songs at the official CD release party at Fiddlers Dream Coffeehouse celebrating with friends and family.
You do not want to miss it, as this is one of their last performances before they move forward into a new chapter of their lives.
Admission tonight is $10. Special early start time of 7:00 pm! Doors will open at 6:20 pm. The concert will be held in the large Meeting room.
