Playtime in the Basement Open mic & Jam
Open mic begins at 7, sign-ups at 6:30. At around 9 the Playtime Volunteers (that's you!) Get down and play on our lighted stage. Bass amp, nice drum kit, keyboards, and 4 mics. Chord/charts can be displayed on a big screen. Step up and lead the band, provide a lick or two or just settle in and be entertained. Delicious, reasonably priced food and beer available for $5 donation. $2 cover. Proceeds to help maintain the historic building. Here's a link to some easy, popular songs. Always looking for suggestions. Need another format? Just ask.

What we're about

The featured artist at the Playtime open mic is... YOU!
We will showcase budding artists on our lighted stage in the Basement of the historic First Congregational Church in downtown Riverside. At 8 pm everyone (audience too!) sing (or play) simple songs of import. Don't worry... lyrics and easy chords will be displayed on the big screen. Then at 9 its back to the open mic format. Bass, drums, piano and other instruments to share to encourage participation. There's a cheap ($5) dinner, beer and soft drinks available for modest donation. Come on down every 3rd Saturday and share the "spirit of the sixties" with friends and family. It's a safe space to let your freek flag fly!
