 2018 Schedule

Unless otherwise noted, all shows are at 7:00 PM (doors at 6:30) and tickets are $15.
Beer, wine, and other refreshments are available.

Open Mic

We hold an open mic the Friday night before each concert. Signups start around 6:30, and the music begins at 7PM. Singers, instrumentalists, poets, spoken-word artists, stand-up comedians, and dramatists are all welcome. Or, just come to listen – and be amazed by the breadth of talent we have on the Long Beach Peninsula!

NEW! HAPPY HOUR EVERY OTHER FRIDAY FROM 5-7PM

Join us on Fridays from 5 – 7PM in the weeks we don’t have a concert and open mic for our Happy Hour featuring local blues guitarist and songwriter Sam Covina Storey! 
Come and relax with a glass of wine, a beer, or coffee or tea to enjoy the music and maybe play one of our many board games.
