Youth Open Mic Saturday Nov 1, 6-9PM

We are excited to be hosting Youth Open Mics on the first Saturday of each month. West End Bakery has been a community-oriented business for 14 years, serving quality food in a comfortable atmosphere to families and is excited to provide a safe and supportive environment for kids to showcase their talents. We recognize the wealth of younger musical talent in Asheville, as well as the scarce opportunities to perform. You bring the talent, whether it be acoustic or keyboard music, poetry or dance and we’ll provide the rest (PA, mics, and keyboard) . Adults are welcome to accompany youth and enjoy Dessert Flights, Sandwiches and beverages.
