The Centre Music House Open Mic is all about creating a welcoming, supportive, and laid back performance space for musicians of all ages and playing levels.

It’s great for the beginner musician who is looking for a low pressure environment to help calm the nerves and ease into performing. For seasoned performers, it’s a fantastic way to experiment with new material and sharpen your skills.

Since 2011, we’ve built an amazing community of open mic-ers who love getting together to share music and each other’s company. Starting in 2022 the Open Mic is back in-person at our new home ATAC and we couldn’t be happier. ATAC is a beautiful performance venue and they share our vision for creating an open mic community that is truly open and welcoming to everyone.

We hope you will join us and share your music or just hang out and have fun.
