The Queen City Balladeers runs the Leo Coffeehouse as a Sunday night open jam and concert, with occasional songwriters groups and open-mic nights; it's a caffeinated listening room, steeped in Americana music. The open jam starts at 5:30, followed by concerts starting at 7:00, every Sunday, September through May, currently held at the Zion United Church of Christ in Norwood, 2301 Indian Mound Avenue, Norwood, OH 45212....Stop by with your instrument, your voice, or just your ears.

Leo Coffeehouse Schedule:

All Leo Coffeehouse evenings begin with the following activities from 5:30PM to 6:45PM: (Unless otherwise posted)

• Every Sunday of the month: Open Jam in the Main Hall

Note: Free Outdoor Summer Acoustic Jams

Feel free to join some of our members at their weekly outdoor acoustic jam on Sunday evenings in Sharon Woods. These summer jams are not a Queen City Balladeers event, but we support acoustic music and so want the public to know about these:

Summer Outdoor Acoustic Jams at Sharon Woods (5:30 – dusk). Jam outdoors at Sharon Woods on Sunday evenings from the first Sunday of June through the first Sunday of September, and are free and open to the public. Look for musicians at a picnic table (they do not reserve an area) near the Sharon Centre – enter from Route 42.

Every Other Friday Song Zircle

Online event

Song Zircles are every week alternating between Friday and Saturday evenings. The song circle on Zoom is really more of a round robin open mic with everyone taking turns playing for the rest of us. Of course you can always play and sing along at home too (on mute). You'll be invited to lead a song in the order in which you joined the Zoom meeting. We'll help you with sound. If you like, have a lead sheet available on your computer to share with the rest of us via Zoom. We can catch up with other and get to know newcomers in between songs.
