Answers to FAQs


Q: Do I need to check in when I arrive?
A: Yes, all performers must check in by 6:30p in order to play.
Q: How many songs can I play?
A: On most nights, no more than 2.
Q: How do I know when I go on?
A: Check in with our staff at the beginning of the night, and we'll let you know where you are on the list. If you are not present when your name is called, you lose your spot.
Q: Will there be piano accompaniment available to me?
A: Not usually, but on some nights there might be a performer willing to accompany on piano (or guitar). Bring a backing track and a chart to make sure your bases are covered.
Q: Can I use a backing track?
A: Yes. Bring your your phone or tablet with the backing track, or email ([email protected]) or text (415-479-3112) a link to the backing track before at least a day in advance of the Open Mic Night.
Q: Can I perform with others?
A: Duos are welcome, but there will typically still be a 2-song limit. Sometimes, musicians meet other musicians at open mics, and they end up performing together. Don't be shy!
Q: Can I bring my full band?
A: Typically, we cannot accomodate full bands at our Open Mic Nights. However, we do occasionally host after-hours live music nights for full bands. Send us information about your band and we'll keep it under consideration.
