Live Music and More!

The Hearing Room

The Hearing Room is a friendly, casual listening room where the performance IS the attraction, not a side show. We are a grassroots cooperative by and for local artists and musicians operating in the spirit of creativity and community . We offer musical acts ranging from acoustic singer songwriter events to full bands; theater, poetry, comedy, jams, open mics and more! Usually, the cost is a suggested donation of $5-$10 with most of the proceeds going to support the performers. We also offer the opportunity to join our growing community with yearly memberships. To see what is happening tonight, or to find out about memberships, check out website or just come on down!

The People's Drum Circle

The Hearing Room

Community Drum Circle for all ages and skill levels. Participants are encouraged to bring their own drums but some house percussion instruments are available. $5 suggested donation

Acoustic Open Mic with Aaron Tornberg

The Hearing Room


A new acoustic, singer/songwriter, folk, and acoustic cover oriented Open Mic on Sunday afternoons! Hosted by Aaron Tornberg, this open mic is welcoming and open to all skill levels and acoustic instruments. We will have a vocal microphone available and there is a house bass guitar. Drums should be limited to hand drums or cojon type instruments. This is a LISTENING open mic. We will have breaks to socialize, but please respect the work of each performer and listen to their contribution in a supportive manner. Performers will share one song at a time and may be able to perform additional songs should time permit. Collaboration is welcomed, but should be planned outside the listening space. Join us and have a great time jamming and sharing songs on a lazy Sunday!

Great American Songbook

The Hearing Room

Hey, music lovers! Every Sunday evening from 5 to 8 pm you are welcome to join us for an always varied evening of standards and jazz from the American songbook, which also includes popular and show tunes! You are more than welcome to come play with me (I have had some amazing musicians sit in with me), sing (no prior training required!), or listen to the evening's offerings. I play the piano, but will gladly sing along if you prefer to play. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. This is a great evening of entertainment in the ever comfortable Hearing Room.
