The Back Door Coffeehouse is recorded live and broadcast by our good friends at WUSM 88.5 FM on the last Sunday of each month at 8pm. The Back Door opens at 7pm and the radio recording begins at 7:30. That gives you time to get your coffee and treats and find a table near the stage. We welcome you to bring in your own pizza, burger, or filet mignon, as well. We’ll have the silverware and your drinks.

About the Back Door Coffeehouse


Back Door Coffeehouse logoUniversity Baptist Church has served as the host of the monthly Back Door Coffeehouse since 1992. The Back Door is a unique ministry of community where local writers, musicians, and poets are featured in an intimate and relaxed candlelight and coffee atmosphere typically held on the first Friday of every month from 7:30 – 9:30P.M. There is no charge for admission, although donations for soft drinks, candy, coffee, etc. are appreciated.


Periodically, various nationally known musicians and performers are secured by donations from patrons and neighborhood sponsors for special concerts to promote this unique artistic venue to a larger audience. Such acclaimed recording artists as Kate Campbell, Pierce Pettis, Caroline Herring, Tracy Grammer, and Steve Forbert have graced our stage, though we are also proud to promote the talents of our own regional musicians and writers. Performers often portray a wide variety of ideas and styles. In supporting the open and honest artistic expression of our neighbors, there will at times be some readings neither intended nor appropriate for children. A nursery worker is provided for parents without additional cost.


If you wish to receive our monthly Back Door Coffeehouse e-mail messages, please contact us at coffeehouse@ubchm.org. We open the back doors of the UBC fellowship hall by 7:00pm and the show (usually 3 live sets of music and/or readings) begins at 7:30.
