The Smokestack’s Sunday Night Open Mic Delivers Sensational Music and Views
The Tri-State music scene is impressive and diverse, with a long list of terrific venues and music varieties to satisfy just about any particular audience.
While large venues like the Q Casino's Backwaters Stage and Five Flags attract and showcase well-known top talent, supporting and listening to local talent at one of the area's open mics is just as fun as well as a lot more affordable.
Such as it was Sunday evening atop the Smokestack's rooftop. With a warm breeze blowing, the open mic was sublime with a backdrop featuring the iconic Dubuque County Courthouse, the Town Clock, and the massive Millwork warehouses.
The Smokestack's Sunday rooftop open mic set the stage for a foot-tapping good time with area musicians sharing their talents from country covers to rhythm and blues to classic rock and original compositions on the ukulele.
The Smokestack is a fun venue, especially during the warm summer, with its superb views and its rooftop bar's chill vibe.
The live music jam session and open mic feature a fun and exciting roster of talent. If you're a musician searching for an attentive audience, bring your musical gear to meet and jam with fellow musicians.
Don't play an instrument? No problem, kick back with a beverage of your choice and enjoy the music and downtown Dubuque's historic backdrop.
Smokestack Sunday Jams are always FREE admission from 4 pm to 8 pm.
