All the songs on this website are from performances at the Now & Zen Cafe. We have had many great perfomers and will continue to. If you are a performer from beginner to expert, stop by on our Open Mic Night. Come in and share your talent with the community. We will only post your songs with your permission.
If you are not a performer, be our guest at Now & Zen and support your local artists. Everyone is welcome to listen and download(when offered) the songs from this site. Please post any comments you have on the message board.
The sign up sheet is always available by 7:30...sometimes as early as 7:00, if I can get across town fast enough:-) Please no call ins...First come First Choice of performance slots. If the list is full before 8 I'll start early!
TUESDAY TUESDAY TUESDAY TUESDAY!
We've had such a success with Thursday night Open Mic that we have started a second Open Mic night on Tuesdays.
This will be slightly different than Thursday night. Tuesday will be a combination of acoustic & electric performances with an emphasis on having people joining in on the performances with percussion and perhaps some lead fill ins.

How would you like your music being played as part of the background music at Now & Zen? Now and Zen is a huge supporter of local talent of all types. As part of our support to local musicians we would like to play specially selected songs from our Open Mic nights and from Cd's that artists have already made. There is no charge for this service!

We're playing at Now & Zen Cafe in Macomb. Every Tuesday & Thursday from 8 - 10 pm. If you'd like to hear me perform you've got to get here early. On busy nights I only perform a few songs before turning it over to the Open Mic performers.
I'm trying to encourage people to be first on the list. The first four slots get 3 songs or 15 minutes, which ever comes first. After that the times and amount of songs may be reduced, depending on how many people are on the list.
Please sign our message board and tell us what you think of our Open Mic. What do you think about the performances being recorded? This is a free service available to everyone. PLEASE post your comments on the message board if you'd like me to continue doing this.
