Open Mic is the first step to performing outside your comfort zone; it is also a fantastic opportunity to mingle with like-minded artists and fans. Waltz-Astoria Open Mic is voted one of the best and longest running open mic in New York City, and have appeared in TimeOut Magazine, the Daily News, Queens Courier, Queens Chronicles, and a long list of online music and comedy magazines and publications. Some of our open mic participants have performed at venues such as the Highline Ballroom, the Rockwood Music Hall, the Queens Theater in the Park, the Joe's Pub, the Pianos, and some have gone on to sign with labels and tour nationally and internationally. As much as we celebrate the success of our waltzers, we know full well that every artist has to start somewhere, and Waltz will always be the nurturer of raw talent.
Performers including musicians, comedians, dancers, poets, spoken word and slam artists, magicians, and other performing artists of various disciplines.
Every Tuesday and Wednesday @ 7pm.
