Our Goal:  “Simply for the love of music”...  That says it all.  The Lost Chord coffeehouse has been established as a laid-back venue where folks of all ages can come and enjoy music provided by musicians who are willing to play (without renumeration) for the simple enjoyment of the audience.  Although The Lost Chord coffeehouse encourages aspiring talent as well as seasoned musicians to attend and register to perform if they so wish, it is not an “open mic” venue per se.  Here, at The Lost Chord, what is important to us is to provide affordable quality entertainment for the audience in a strictly not-for-profit venue.  The audience comes first.   The Lost Chord reserves the right to decide who performs, at what time, how many songs, and who will be “featured” on any given evening.  We strive to be as democratic as possible in the allocation of performance time-slots hoping the musicians who do register to perform will understand that there are time constraints and that they may not get a chance to perform on any given night.  (NOTE: The names of all the performers who sign up are placed in a hat.  The "luck of the draw" determines the order of performances!)   We also beseech you to PLEASE be quiet during performances.  We thank you for your support, patience and understanding.

OCTOBER 2016:  Buzz (Bob) and Bernie Roberts have taken over the operation of the coffeehouse and ask for your continued support to ensure the ongoing success of this worthwhile venture.

Musicians register at the door.  The opening act starts at 7:15 p.m., followed by performances from registered musicians (typically 2 songs each).

Coffee, tea, soft drinks and bottled water as well as pizza by the slice and baked goods available on-site for a nominal fee.
