All Night Open Mike with host Jim Donnelly

Admission $5.00 (This month only.). All the proceeds from April Coffeehouse will donated to the U. U. Church that has been so generous to our venue for most of our 40 year history.

A message from Jim about this special night...

We haven’t done one of these in a number of years but they were very popular in times gone by. Established musicians will often turn out as well as musicians who are testing the waters for the first time.

The format will be that of a kind of round robin where the musicians will probably be sitting in a circle at the front of the room and take their turn time and again playing, singing, or whatever.

I’m sure we’ll all have a lot of fun with this style of a coffeehouse. So get the word out to all your friends, neighbors, and whomever to take their instruments out of mothballs, dust them off, do the tuning and perhaps replace a string or two. Then come out and join us for our first attempt at an all open mike coffeehouse in years.
