Come listen to talented local performers or sign up to play.

Performer Sign-up Process 

  • Show up between 6:00 - 6:30 to sign up. Playing order will be randomly assigned with the first performer going on at 6:45.
     
  • Anyone arriving after 6:30 will be added to the performer list in the order that they sign up.
     
  • If there is not enough time for someone to perform, they will be guaranteed a slot the following month if they show up by 6:30.
A typical evening provides an opportunity for about 12 to 14 acts to perform two songs each. Each month we also have a feature act that performs a 30 minute set. For more information:

Greg Klyma
August 7th
Featured Act

Greg Klyma is a prolific songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and seasoned performer, bringing to every stage a catalog of material that assumes his audiences are both smart and enjoy a good laugh.

His birth date puts him squarely in the middle of Generation X, but Greg is an old-school troubadour. His enduring themes, articulate and amusing stories, and populist ideals make him one of those rare young artists who is carrying the torch of Woody and Ramblin’ Jack.

He rolls in off the road, pulls out a guitar, and proceeds to take us back to the basics: family, love, gratitude, and laughter. It’s the timeless art of the true troubadour, keeping alive the American folk tradition

About the Jam'n Java Open Mic at Kickstand Cafe

The Jam’n Java Open Mic was established to provide a free, live music venue for the Arlington community and a supportive environment for area performers.  Now in its fifth year, it was the inspiration of Stephanie Marlin-Curiel and is currently hosted by Mark Sandman, Joe Burns Dianne "De" Iannitelli and Glen Woodworth.  A special thank you to the owners and Staff of the Kickstand Cafe for providing a home and for their support of the Jam'n Java Open Mic.
