The Jam’n Java Open mic at Kickstand Café, which takes place on the first Friday of every month from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm, is celebrating its tenth anniversary on Friday, June 7, at Kickstand Café, 594 Mass. Ave., Arlington, MA.
Open mic performers include individuals and groups of all ages and musical styles. They range from people simply wishing to share their music with others to aspiring local performers looking for a venue to try out new material and polish their performance skills. On any given evening you might hear original songs, folk, blues, bluegrass, or jazz.
The Jam’n Java Open mic at Kickstand Café was the inspiration of Stephanie Marlin-Curiel and is currently co-hosted by Mark Sandman and Joe Burns, with the assistance of Dianne “De” Iannitelli, Glen Woodworth, and Gary Goldsmith.
Mr. Sandman noted: “We owe a special thank you to the owners and staff of Kickstand Cafe for providing a home for us and for their ongoing support of the Jam’n Java Open Mic.
