The Best Open Mic Around Since 1999 @ Taffy's of Eaton | Eaton | Ohio | United States

Open Mic Night is an evening filled with live music provided by singers, songwriters and local musicians. Performers can sign up with the hosts to participate in the evening by performing up to 20 minutes.

It was established in 1999 and is one of the best OPEN MIC events in the area. Registration is required, because we always have a packed house.

Taffy’s is known for providing a stage for new performers who go on to play their own gigs, record CDs, etc . . . . but then we’re also known for providing a stage to lots of talented folks who never become famous, but who keep the arts alive and growing for all to enjoy.

Our Open Mic is for all styles of music performance, including poetry, comedy, and storytelling. Most of what you’ll hear is original songs on acoustic instruments, but we welcome whatever you have to offer.

He has recently started teaching and holding workshops on acoustic blues guitar at venues such as Taffy’s in Eaton, OH.
