We are a group of Artists, Musicians and Industry Professionals dedicated
to the belief that people need beautiful, intimate performance spaces to share their ideas, stories and arts.
Our goal is to create a network of Performance Parlors that can host and nurture local and touring artists in a way that the larger spaces never can...for there are far more Artists who can fill a 49 seat theater, than can fill a 490 seat theater. Furthermore, there are already established business models to keep the larger spaces alive.
Due to the massive amount of permitting and regulation involved in running a performance space, as well as often suffering from minimal to non existent promotion budgets, the average life of a smaller performance space is less than 5 years. This is normally right about the time that they finally start building up some name recognition and visibility in the community.
Our dream is to build a strong Non Profit Arts Organization that handles the running of these spaces; the leasing, booking, and promoting... and allow local members of the community to run and curate the individual nights.
We need new spaces!!!
