TM Open Mic for All Ages


Enjoy these photos from Tosco Music Open Mic in October 2019 when we were fortunate to have many special performances and professional photography by Blue Amber Photography. Select the grey dots to scroll through the gallery above, or see all of her photos online here.

Effective November 2023, Tosco Music Open Mic is now on first Tuesdays of each month (with rare exceptions - remember to doublecheck the Events page to confirm).

Since 2001, Tosco Music has hosted an eclectic, supportive, family-friendly evening of singalongs and solo performances from all ages and experience levels. Once a month at The Evening Muse in the NoDa area of Charlotte, NC, we enjoy a unique gathering of music lovers of all kinds -- you might see a 9 year old stun you with his a capella version of a soul classic, a 70 year old surprise you with a sweet ballad, a 40-something banker-by-day, singer-songwriter-by-heart share an original song, or a trio of teens take the room by storm with unexpected skill and talent.

Tosco Music audiences are the most enthusiastic supporters of musicians of all kinds, and first-time performers of all ages are especially welcomed.

We never know who we'll see or what special gifts of music we'll be treated to -- come enjoy the music, or share your own! Sign ups start at 7pm, the singalong circle starts at 7:30 and performances start at 8pm.

Anyone can sign up to perform! Performance slots are first come, first pick, although order may be slightly rearranged to accommodate young students who need the earliest times slots.

Effective April 2019, The Evening Muse cover charge is increasing to $5. This is collected at the door and supports The Evening Muse's the travelling musicians fund. Adults visiting The Evening Muse for the first time will pay an additional annual $1 membership registration. Guests under 17 need an accompanying adult to enter.

The Evening Muse is at 3227 N. Davidson Street at the corner of 36th Street in NoDa.
