Everyone's the Audience, Everyone Can Play
Join us for an evening where everyone is welcome to make music, sing, read, laugh, or just hang out and listen. This is not an "open-mic" with a sign-up list. The Muse Jam is more fun! We'll alternate between individual-led and collaborative performance and pure unplugged jams. Who's welcome? Anyone from beginners to professionals, whether you like to play an instrument or just listen, sing or be sung to, read your work or hear great stories and poems, practice your standup or improv or laugh yourself silly. Feel free to bring songbooks, sheet music, instruments, and friends. Suggested donation: $2 (goes to our scholarship funds; donation not required to attend).
