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!
