Mike Rapkins of The Roughs hosts Open Mike Night every Wednesday from 7-9 pm on the legendary stage at Hotel Wolfe Island that's been the setting for appearances by an un-listable roster of Canadian and internationally acclaimed musicians.
Come to enjoy, or to participate with music, poetry, dance, storytelling, comedy, or any other creative offering. All performers are bought a round by the house.
Maybe you’re new to live performance and wish to face fears of playing live, or maybe you’re an experienced vet whose looking to experiment, whatever it is you want to express come on down to Open Mike Night!
Our newly renovated space features full backline and classic gear including vintage Fender amps, Hammond organ, Fender Rhodes electric piano, Gretsch drum kit, and Technics turntables.
