For the Audience...

  • Location:  We are located in Avon Lake, Ohio about 20 miles west of Cleveland.  We are about ten minutes from I-90 and twenty minutes from the Ohio Turnpike.
  • Show Format:  Shows typically last about three hours.  Doors open 30 minutes before show time.  The artists usually play two 45 to 60 minute sets with a 30 minute intermission.
  • Refreshments:  We provide some light refreshments.  Guests are welcome to bring something to share during intermission.
  • The Air We Breathe:  Our house is non-smoking.  We do have a dog and a cat.  The dog spends the night at a friend's house, and the cat is sequestered upstairs throughout the show. Still, if you have alergies, you might consider taking something before you arrive.

For Artists and Agents...

  • Sound:  We provide professional quality sound reinforcement -- including 20-channel mixer, 2-channel compressor/limiter, 2-channel equalizer, and one effects processor.  We usually use an AKG C1000S condenser mic for vocals, but have Sure SM-58s available.  We also have an AKG C3000B condenser mic, which is well suited for guitar.  Because the room is very live, we do not use stage monitors.
  • Lighting:  We have a simple lighting scheme using four PAR lamps.  Two lamps on the left side of the room provide a warm tint; two on the right side provide a cool tint.  The lights are controlled by dimmers.
  • Room:  Our concerts are held in a 20' by 20' carpeted room with an 18' cathedral ceiling.
  • Capacity:  We can comfortably seat 50 people with room for three performers.  We supply comfortable, molded plastic, folding chairs.
