Open Jam & Open Mic

 She Rock She Rock is proud to be the host of an all-ages Bi-Monthly Jam at Mortimer's in Minneapolis!

If you're a girl, woman, gender non-conforming or trans person between the ages of 2-102 and are interested in performing with our amazing She Rock house band, this is the place!  Camp bands from GRRR & Ladies Rock Camp are *highly* encouraged to perform here, and this is also a great forum for any duos or groups to showcase their stuff!  We offer a very safe, supportive environment for rockers with little or no stage experience and those who are veterans of the music scene.  This is a great performance opportunity! 

The She Rock house band consists of teachers and staff from rock camp.  If you'd like to play with the band, please have one of the songs listed below prepared (click on the song title for the chord chart).  We have a drumset, guitar amps, bass amp, keyboard and mics available for your use, just bring your guitar or bass if that's what you play!

In addition, we typically have a few openings each event for soloists to perform.  If you'd like some accompaniment for a song you sing/play or are just not ready to perform by yourself yet, bring a chart and we can accompany you.  You can also bring an iPod with backing tracks to perform with if you'd like.  Please e-mail Jenny (address below) to find out if there are any openings at the next jam for open mic performers. 

All rockers interested in performing MUST email Jenny Case at to sign up prior to the jam.  Also, any questions about our jam or song requests can be directed to this e-mail address.

This event is all-ages and the audience is open to anyone who wants to support girls, women, gender nonconforming and trans folks!  There is a $5 suggested donation at the door.  This venue is ADA Accessible.
