Nectar

VENUE SPOTLIGHT

Nectar Lounge

Seattle WA

 

Over the last few years Nectar Lounge in Seattle has become the comfortable home of national touring acts and regional powerhouses. We had the opportunity to catch up with Andy Palmer who has been booking the room for quite some time, to talk about how he does it, what makes Seattle and Nectar Lounge special, and his visions for the future.

Mauch Chunk Opera House

Mauch Chunk Opera House

Jim Thorpe, PA

 

Nestled in the Pocono Mountains of Eastern Pennsylvania is a small town made famous by changing their town's name to honor one of America's greatest athletes, Jim Thorpe. Though he was not from there, the town was inspired by his accomplishments and took his name. In the late 1800s when the area was still known as Mauch Chunk, the community came together and decided to build a building for community events, town hall, and local market. Over the years that building has been renovated many times and is the current Opera House for the area. As not too many operas are heading through NEPA, for decades it has housed concerts for the community.

Cosmic Charlie’s in Lexington, KY

Cosmic Charlie’s

Lexington, KY

 

For our current venue spotlight, we’re checking out a new venue in Lexington, KY called Cosmic Charlie’s. We had a great conversation with Mark Evans, who is booking the room. In some ways, this room is taking some of the vibe from the Fishtank, an institution in Lexington the last few years in terms of live music, and bringing it across the street to Cosmic Charlie’s. So here is some great information from Mark about their booking philosophy, what the club is going to be like, and just some general musical chit chat!

Chuck’s in Burbank, IL

Chuck’s

Burbank, IL

 

We gig all over Chicago and recently had a chance to get in on the ground floor of a new venue in the South suburbs called the Voodoo Lounge. It is part of a fabulous restaurant campus that includes Chuck’s Southern Comforts Café,serving top notch Mexican food, and the Voodoo Lounge, which as the name implies is the Cajun way station and BBQ depot. This is where the bands play and is in the French Quarter tradition: a painted concrete floor and low tile ceiling.

The Good Foot

The Good Foot

Portland, OR

 

Over the years, the Good Foot has been one of the best venues for live music fans in the Rose City of Portland, Oregon. Long known as a place where people really believe in quality of life over other things like work and money, Portland is a vibrant city that is growing and has a focus on outdoor living, the environment, and a generally bohemian lifestyle. For years, the Good Foot has been a place for these types of people to come and see live music. Not interested in cover bands or DJs or other fad oriented music, the customers come to see bands that play music that way it should be played.
