DOORS: 6pm

List compiled: 6:50pm

Open mics will be a mix of comedy and acoustic musical performances throughout the night. The performance list for both will be drawn as names from a hat prior to the event. The list will be compiled at 6:50pm. If you are late you may be added to the list if there are open spots. If not you will need to wait till the end of the list if possible to get a slot. We do not take early reservations for performances to give everyone fair opportunity to perform.

Comedy performances max out at 7 minutes which leaves approximately 12 spots open for performance. This may change based on length of performances and quantity of performers. If we complete the list and there is still time available we will start back at the bottom of the list or add new comers to fill the time.

Acoustic musical performances max out at 3 songs or 20 minutes. This may change based on length of performances and quantity of performers. If we complete the list and there is still time available we will start back at the bottom of the list or add new comers to fill the time. We do not have any sort of instrumental back line in house so all artists must bring their own instruments.

We will have mics, stands, stools, chairs and even a light and sound tech to help make everything sound great. We will use a flash of light or word of mouth to let you know that you have one minute of performance left. Please be respectful of all artists and be aware of your set ending. If we feel an artist is taking too much time we will cut sound and transition into the next artist. We look forward to seeing what you’ve got!

CD Woodbury Trio

“Booty-shaking contemporary blues with wit and extraordinary substance” says Dave Rubin, a Keeping the Blues Alive Award recipient in Journalism. The CD Woodbury Trio have been performing in the Pacific Northwest’s top blues clubs and festivals since forming in late 2015. Guitarist, singer, and songwriter CD Woodbury plays a muscular, expressive style with no direct influences. He is backed by the dynamic and musical rhythm section of Patrick McDanel on bass and Don Montana on drums.

24 Madison

24 Madison is headed west, bringing you our favorites from Aretha, Ray Charles, Sam Cooke, Stevie Wonder and more! Come out to the new Aurora Borealis club for a fantastic evening with us!

With well over 200 years of music experience among them, the members of 24 Madison found each other over the past few years and decided to leverage that experience towards a band that was unique and would stand out against the current scene.

Female, male, and backing vocals, REAL horns (nice when you have a fantastic keyboard player and he doesn’t have to fake horn parts!), and percussion in addition to drums–we are able to take on a HUGE range of music, everything from soul to rock to pop to funk–and with our experience and dedication we cover them well. Who else covers Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Chicago, Amy Winehouse, Al Green, in one show!?!

Cory Vincent

What do you get when you combine the hard edged, dreary sounds of the Pacific Northwest with the soulful, southern themed voicings of the blues? The fans of Cory Vincent have appropriately coined it, “Grunge Blues.”

Drawing inspiration from genre-blending trailblazers like Neil Young, Jimi Hendrix, and Jack White; Cory’s live performances have given music lovers something they have been longing for… an experience.

Whether it be an intimate acoustic setting in a small crowded bar room; or a powerhouse, guitar heavy performance on a festival stage; fans of every age are taken aback by Cory’s ability to “make you wanna stop and listen.” With his powerful yet tasteful guitar playing, and soulful vocals that come straight from heart, Cory brings a depth to his performances that none can ignore.
