CHARLESTON S.C. (CelebrityAccess) — Nashville-based concert promotion company National Shows 2 (NS2) has signed an agreement to exclusively book the Charleston Music Hall in Charleston, SC.
The deal will see NS2 work to bring both nationally known and up-and-coming regional acts to the venue. NS2 has worked with Music Hall owner Mike Bennett and Director Charles Carmody for several years leading up to this partnership.
The 20-year-old theater, located in historic downtown Charleston on John Street, seats 967 people and has hosted a variety of artists including David Byrne, Ricky Skaggs, Gillian Welch, Jason Isbell, Shovels & Rope and comedians Aziz Ansari and Mike Birbiglia, as well as upcoming concerts with John Butler Trio and Justin Townes Earle among others.
Formed in 2010, NS2 promotes all genres of entertainment, including full-length tours and one-off concerts nationwide.
"After meeting with owner Mike Bennett and hearing about his passion for the history of Charleston, I was inspired to want to help develop more business for the Music Hall," said Darin Lashinsky, CEO of NS2. "We are excited to present more shows at this fantastic facility in what has become a great concert market." – Staff Writers
