We’re bringing back the spirit of The Listening Room, with the original host Robert Quindaro’s blessing. This will be an evening of acoustic open mic musical entertainment that finishes up with an extended set by a featured local songwriter or two. As before, the primary focus is to give voice to our local talent in an environment that promotes a “shut up and listen” ethic. SIgn-ups for the open mic will be at 6:30, first up will perform at 7. The featured performers will come on in the final hour of the event. DONATIONS ENCOURAGED.

This event is a community fundraising show that encourages donations to support our Namba Performing Arts Space. Drinks will be available for purchase. Vocals and instruments will be run through the excellent sound system; microphones, monitors, direct in jacks will be available for use, as will the house grand piano. Open mic performers will have about 10 minutes on stage, subject to change dependent on participation levels. This event is being scheduled for the months of November and December with the hopes that its success will allow us to continue monthly in 2022.
