Tuesday Night World Famous Open Mic

When: Every Tuesday Night

With one of the longest running open stages in Ottawa, our World Famous Tuesday Night Open Mic celebrated 10 years last September. We have consistently drawn an incredible number of talented musicians and it makes for a great night with lots of variety. 

Hosted by John Carroll, he gets the show started with his upbeat and hilarious presence on the stage. Sign ups begin at 7pm, and the “show” starts at 9pm. John always ensures that everyone who wants to play, gets an opportunity to, so stop by whenever you can on Tuesdays to sign up! We offer a house guitar and a microphone, but we invite you to bring along any instruments you like. With so much talent stopping by, the music usually goes right until close, making it a lively and entertaining evening for performers and patrons alike!

Hope to see you rocking our Murphy Stage very soon!
