The Hotel Utah in San Francisco has consistently been voted the "Best Open Mic" in San Francisco for years. If you ever go there you will find out why they win the San Francisco Bay Guardian's poll. On any one night, the caliber of entertainment does not get any better.

If you come to perform, be aware that you only get one song. The names are drawn out of a hat and the last one picked goes first. There are so many people wanting to play that the list is often 50-60 people. It seems that everyone there is promoting an upcoming show (that in itself shows the level of talent).

I'd like to thank Bridget from 200Pockets.com and Eric Goodfield, for sharing their ideas on how to get a better color balance. I also need to thank host extraordinare
JJ Shultz for his continuing help and for providing the wonderful audio CDs of the night's highlights. Between the CDs and the weekly "The Utah Loves You..." e-mailer which showcases upcoming events, JJ really supports the musicians coming to the Utah Open Mic. Checkout www.theutah.org

On 7/30/07 we filmed some great performances shown in the videos below. Its really a treat to get to know the artists at Hotel Utah. You can read some of their "Artist Interviews" here on this site.
