The granddaddy of Open Mic Nights on St. John can be found at Sun Dog Café in Mongoose Junction. Every Sunday evening around 6pm locals and visitors gather in the Sun Dog Café courtyard location in Mongoose Junction.  The host, Mark Wallace, leads the show and is joined by other local talent and visitors to present a wide variety of music.  Anyone in the crowd who feels the urge to participate is welcome to join in. It’s not unheard of to catch a celebrity musician joining in for a song or two.


Open Mic Night was launched at Pickles in Paradise in Coral Bay by Michael Beason, a talented musician and long-time resident of St. John. The event, which begins at 4:30pm on Wednesday, brought Open Mic Night to the laid back side of the island. It has become a popular hump day event for locals and island visitors staying on the East side of the island.


Also on the Coral Bay side of the island, one of the most popular island Open Mic Nights happens on Monday nights at Concordia Eco Resort. The action starts at 4:30 at this St John restaurant, but get there by 4:00 to get a table. Hosted by two popular local artists, Lauren Magnie and “Johnny B” Bullock, many other local musicians are regularly on hand. This is a high energy event with visiting musicians joining in on the fun.


The newest venue for Open Mic Night is at the Raintree Café at Cinnamon Bay Resort. Bo Magnie (the other half of the Bo & Lauren musical duo) joins Miss Ingrid, an amazing local vocalist, as the hosts of the event.  The talent which this north shore venue for Open Mic Night is sure to introduce has locals on St John excited!   Currently scheduled on Wednesday evening, this show begins at 5pm.
