Are you fortunate enough to have an actual uke open mic in your area?

I have been looking for that locally, and so far I don't see any.

Would be fun.

I host a monthly Open Stage in Morristown, NJ (about an hour or so from you). It's not Uke specific but every one is welcomed and encouraged.

We host one on Sunday nights in San Clemente, California called Ukulele Sundays. It's kanikapila style. Average attendance is in the 30's. It's at Molly Bloom's. We have our own room, seperate from the bar. Ric

The open mic I usually go to isn't uke-specific. Sometimes there's another uke player there, more often there isn't.

As far as my area goes, the Ukulele Union of Boston always has an open mic portion to its bi-weekly meetings, and there's a monthly uke open mic in Worcester. But I rarely get to the UUoB meetings, and I haven't been to any of the Worcester open mics.

There's a lot of open mic's that don't specify an instrument in your area, UKM:

There are a few open mics in my area. There is one right down the road from me which is not Uke specific and I've never been but I saw an ad for it in my local coffee shop. Here is a link (http://www.vcn.bc.ca/vanukes/aroundtown.html#clubs) to a bunch that are in the Lower Mainland and BC. I've never been to any but maybe one day I will get over my fear of performing and go check one out.

On a side not I recently read a good book about a guy who travels around Britain playing open mics. It's a travelogue with a heavy ukulele theme. It's a nice quick funny read. Check it out : The Uke of Wallington (http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/14807976-the-uke-of-wallington). Support a fellow uker!
