How About Volunteering at Fiddler's Dream Coffeehouse!

We need your help...  Fidd's 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! 

Dream Big Benefit CD

The Dream Big CDs have arrived! All net proceeds to benefit Fiddler’s Dream!!! A minimum $10 is requested.  If you’d like to purchase one but aren’t within driving distance for one of our pickup events at Fidd's (check our Fidd's Facebook page), let us know via FB message, or text message to or call 602-997-9795, or email  and we can figure out mailing details.   


Update:  KN95 masks may be used in lieu of N95 mask, but masks remain required.

We are continuing our live and in-person events! We still observe mitigation methods and precautions, to do the best we can to minimize the chance for sharing more than beautiful music! We are doing our best to be inclusive to all who would like to attend, to include those in high risk or immune compromised status. N95 or KN95 masks are required inside the music room area (except for the performer while performing), and are available at the venue for you if needed, at no cost.  Beverages will be available for enjoyment outside in the lighted courtyard area; beverages may be enjoyed inside during the performance, just move your mask, take a sip, and return your mask to regular operating position (and fasten your seat belt)! We continue to improve our ventilation and air circulation - sometimes that means a door is left open, so please dress to suit the climate! Our goal is to get back to live music, and remain open for that beautiful exchange of energy that happens in the room - and we want our indoor area to be as safe as possible for all attendees. Please check our event listings for details on individual events.

Mark your calendar for these upcoming events.   Check our Facebook Events page for details. 

Open Stage Pic

Acoustic Open Stage Thursdays LIVE! And Every Thursday!

Our Open Stage night is completely acoustic, and lots of fun whether you wish to play or simply enjoy the evening as part of the audience.

We recommend arriving before 6:29pm (if you are a musician, that will get you in on the first rotation, and if you just want to enjoy the music, you'll be there from the start!).

Doors will open by 5:30pm (often a bit sooner), and we start playing at 6:30pm. We do a one-song rotation and a time limit of no more than 4 minutes per turn. Play your turn - please no substitutions or giving your turn to another performer. Give the performer their time: 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! Thank you for having fun with us as we celebrate 2023, our return to live music, and our 36th Anniversary!

Admission is $10 at the door. Cash is always appreciated, as we are not always able to take cards at this time.

We are opening to live events while keeping the safety of our audience and our performers in mind as our primary concern. The regular Fidd's room will have a capacity of 40, and masks will be required while in the room, N95 or KN95 (except for the performer while performing), and are available at the venue for you if needed, at no cost. Each performer may choose to remove their mask while on stage for their turn. We'll have hot coffee, hot water, cold water, and pop available for purchase for attendees to enjoy outside, with limited beverages inside - talk with the kitchen volunteer if any questions! Dress for the evening climate, as we have been leaving at least one of the south doors open to improve ventilation and fresh air flow!

From all of us at Fiddler's Dream: Have a safe and happy New Year.
Larry, Nia, Jim C and Jim G.

 Happy New Year 2024
