The evening will feature local performers showing their skills as folk, R&B, jazz, classical musicians, comedians and poets.

There will be a limitation placed on the amount of acts performing. Performances should be kept to less than 10 minutes. Several times during the evening, there will be a "jam" for all who want to perform in a large group musical number.
An acoustic piano and a sound system will be provided.
Admission to the Haystack's Coffee House Open Mic & Jam night is free. There will be a freewill offering taken to cover expenses. Those interested in performing should contact Tom Steffens at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (815) 404-7908.
