Our Tractorgrease Cafe has been open for a little more than a year now and the Friday night open mic has become quite the event. We've had so many great musicians grace the stage, too many to count. One of our diehard jammers wrote a song called Tractorgrease Cafe and it sums up the night nicely. Thx to Scott, Stu and Gary for spending the night at the studio recording the song.

It's a short walk from Garrison and Keith Wilson areas at the start of Rotary Trail. Bring your blankets or lawn chairs, sit down relax and take in some great performances.
