How About Volunteering at Fiddler's Dream Coffeehouse!

We need your help...  Fidds is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, and our coffeehouse engine needs volunteers to keep it running.  Please consider helping out - greeting guests with a smile, making and pouring coffee and drinks, taking admission and even being an emcee. And you will get free admission for the night!  What a deal!

To find out more about being a Fiddler's Dream Volunteer, contact our volunteer coordinator by SMS-texting your contact info to 602-997-9795. If you don't have a mobile phone, call and leave a message on our VMS at that same number.  It's that easy!  


Thursday nights are Open Stage Night from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm.  

$5 admission. Doors open at 6:00 pm. Order of play determined by order of arrival.  One song per rotation. 

Many wonderful musicians have shared their music on the Fiddler's Dream stage over the years. Our open stage began in 1996! Our Open Mic Night is an Open Stage Night, as we are completely acoustic, so there aren't any mics... just a whole lot of good music, and an appreciative audience!

We’ve made a few changes in the New Year, hoping to improve the experience for our performers and our audience! Doors open at 6:00 pm, and we start playing at 6:30 pm. If you arrive by 6:30 pm, you will be in the first rotation. If you arrive after 6:30 pm, you will be added to the list under the red line, and play in the second round / rotation. We do a one-song rotation and a time limit of no more than 4 minutes per turn. Stick around, everybody plays! 

Play your turn - there are no substitutions or giving your turn to another performer. Give the performer their turn: unless you are invited to play with the performer, please don’t play-along with your instrument. Join the audience and listen! And please don’t play music outside, except to tune your instrument or quietly warm up a bit. Since we are all acoustic, sound does carry inside! 

We discourage the use of cell phones in the performance area.  Please turn them off or set to "vibrate".  Please do not audio or video record a performer without their permission.  Additional information is here.

Admission is $5. Thank you for having fun with us!
