we are a music integrated community

M is for Music because it's where it all started. I is for Integrated because rhythm doesn't stop with music. We're Poets, Authors, Artists & Comedians too. C is for Community because creating, inspiring, and sharing doesn't happen without it.

 Post Prod

The MIC is a community of musicians, poets, comedians, dancers and other performers coming together to share and encourage each other at open mics throughout New York City. This event originally started for the advertising, media, and film industry encouraging the musical development of creatives, producers, and more while providing them with a space to perform and share with the community.

We welcome the stage to all performers at our bi-monthly residency at the Sidewalk Cafe for our 2-hour event The MIC. Any instruments, dance, poetry, short stories or dance welcome. Slots are 7 minutes each.

If you aren't a performer, we hope you will join us in supporting our peers and making some new friends!



This COMMUNITY EVENT was started by two producers after they bought their first guitars and encouraged each other into playing their first open mic.

It was after this that they realized, though a personal journey, musical development is something that could and should be shared with others. It's been almost 2 years since their first open mic and they now have a newsletter and Slack Channel. This newsletter is open to anyone and it's where they send updates about general open mics in the city, shows by community members, encourage practice and supporting each other. It's also a list where we announce our bi-monthly open mic hosted with The Music Playground at the Sidewalk NY.

We hope to see and *hear* you soon!
