Open Mics

As a service to our members, NCSC seeks to stay current with open mics.

Please contact Vito Di Bona if you’d like to add and/or update an open mic venue to this page. Use the list below to find an open mic near you. For details, please contact the venue directly. Now, get out there and share your voice!

An open mic provides an opportunity for newcomers to be heard, for seasoned musicians to try out new material, and for anyone with an act to connect with an audience. Performers and audience members tend to be very supportive. Open mics are a great way to meet other songwriters and musicians and to improve your performance skills. The most important thing is to have a good time!
