    I'm relatively new to the Oakland/San Fran area and I'm tired of playing for my dog.

    Can anyone here tell me of some open mic opportunities in the Bay Area?

    I'm willing to start just about anywhere. Blues, jazz, R&B (old school), funk, accompanying the "spoken word" genre, anything, I'VE GOT TO PLAY SOMEWHERE!!

    Please get in touch!!

    Pick up Guardian and SF Weekly. They are two SF rags that show just about every music/open mike/spoken word listing.

    I paid for all my gear myself. Well, me and MasterCard.
    Down in the South Bay, the Quarter Note in Sunnyvale has blues jams Sunday-Thursday (except Tuesday is Karaoke night!) at 9 PM.

    In San Jose, JJ's Blues Club has blues jams Sunday-Thursday evenings starting at 6 PM.
