Carmel Youth Center


The CYC Open Mic Night at the Carmel Youth Center is a monthly open mic night (2nd FRIDAY Each Month!)exclusively for teen performers NOW FOR ADULTS TOO! It’s a fun evening with some ridiculously talented performances. Besides our exceptional local talent, we’ve also had artists from Las Vegas and Los Angeles grace our stage. At any given show, you might get to see and hear award winning singer-songwriters, great local bands, and occasionally we’ll have a professional touring band close the show. Each month is guaranteed to provide a music-filled evening with some of the most talented artists around.

NEW: Audience members use a their smart phones and our custom web-app to give each performer a score between 0 and 100. After the last performer, audience members have a minute to submit their final scores with one click of a button. Winners are selected for each of the following categories:

  • Best Solo Artist
  • Best Group
  • Best Spoken Word/Comedian
  • Best Newb (1st time performing at CYC Teen Open Mic)
  • Best Original Song (Winner receives 1 hour recording session at Spirit Vision Studios)
  • Best Adult (NEW! For a Solo or Group act with any performer 18 years old or older)
  • People’s Choice Award (for the performer with the highest average score from the audience)

IMPORTANT: Only the first 12 performers to sign up will qualify for prizes.

Open Jam

Once the prizes are awarded, those who signed up late, those who were too shy to be judged, and anyone interested in performing are allowed to perform. At each open mic night many of the performers stick around for an open jam. It’s a great opportunity to meet and jam with new musician friends. And it’s always fun. Occasionally, we’ll have a professional touring band perform a short set as a special guest.

Volunteer Opportunities

In addition to providing the only performance venue in the central coast area exclusively for teens, we provide volunteer opportunities for teens seeking community service hours. For each Teen Open Mic, teen volunteers help operate the CYC Grill. They help set up the stage, including setting up and running the stage lighting for each show. Teen volunteers set up and run the sound system, including our 16-channel sound board. It is truly a teen production, with guidance provided by Carmel Youth Center staff and adult volunteers.
