About Us

If you enjoy Acoustic Music on a Saturday night why not come to a fabulous evening's entertainment? We run unplugged acoustic open stage events at CB2 in Cambridge twice a month. We also run events in Julia's Tea Rooms in Ely on Friday evenings once a month.

Do you play or sing yourself?

If you'd like to play then entrance is free. But make sure you book a two-song slot beforehand - we are always full by the time the evening arrives! Contact us now to join our email list or find out more.

We sometimes also have a featured artist, but please do not contact us to request one of these - we offer featured slots to people who have come along to the open stage evenings.
