June Stage Left Open Mic Features The Saltines
The Saltines are known throughout the region by music fans and recognized by fellow bluesmen from Chicago to Memphis. Chuck’s mastery of the electric guitar and vocals that really “feel the blues” are an excellent counterpoint to Ted’s virtuosity on the harmonica. While a harmonica is just a small, light musical instrument, the way Ted throws himself into his music requires a physical training regimen like an Olympic athlete.
A high-energy blues duo, Chuck and Ted appear frequently in the northwest Illinois area.
Don’t miss The Saltines, FRIDAY, JUNE 12, 2023. Stage Left Open Mics get better and better since we came back to Friday evenings. Spots fill quickly, so sign up early — two songs or ten minutes, whichever comes first.

What is the Stage Left Open Mic?
These Open Mics, brought to you by Off Square Music, are monthly events on 2nd Fridays in Woodstock. Performers — musicians, singers, poets, and others — come together to connect with a live audience in a wonderful, family-friendly environment.
Whether you’re just starting out as a performer or are a seasoned veteran, our audience provides a supportive atmosphere. Stage Left, part of the Woodstock Opera House, adds to that ambiance with an exceptional performance space and sound system.
Off Square Music requests a $5.00/pp suggested donation to support our many music activities, including these Stage Left Open Mic nights.
Important note to all performers and attendees
Masks are currently optional, and we do not require proof of vaccination. Please be thoughtful of your neighbors.
