Venue: Berlin Bicycle Café, Waterloo ON

My last musical adventure of 2016 didn’t get posted until now – pleading holiday chaos for the delay.

Once a month (or so) on a Thursday (or Friday) the Berlin Bicycle Café serves up a participatory evening of music along with gourmet treats and coffee. Hosted by Janice Jo Lee, the open mic starts off with 10 minute sets – music and spoken word/poetry welcome – and has a feature performer half way through the evening.





Last night Vienna D’Amato Hall filled the feature spot with her haunting tunes. A surprise bonus in the second half of the open mic was a few songs by Alysha Brilla who generously had us all sing along.

Graham, owner of the Berlin Bicycle Café (there are actual bikes downstairs), also hosts concerts at his venue. Check out the FB page for upcoming concert dates and future open mics.


[Berlin Bicycle Café, 701 Belmont Ave W, Waterloo; once or twice/month 7-11ish; $6/pwyc cover]

    I have a new young talent who is looking to get his name out there. My name is David Royea and I represent my client Blake who is a very talented musician and needs a break on the local stage. Please reply back

    Hi David – I visit a lot of open mics but don’t actually run these events. If you browse some of the blogposts maybe you’ll get some ideas of venues where Blake can perform. Best of luck!
