Musicians enjoy intimate setting of Open Mic Night

Issaquah Open Mic is a terrific venue! I have been part of the “administrative team” for a couple of years, and the dedication and perseverance of the founding members is awesome — and very much appreciated.

Rick Young on the sound set does a superb job, and Lee Haro assists and supports the event. We have people of all ages and musical ability perform — and some of them have gone on to perform at other places and get to be well known.

A fabulous venue — and I personally thank the Train Depot Museum personnel for allowing us to enjoy an evening of music fellowship!
