CLEVELAND, Ohio (CelebrityAccess) — Cleveland restaurant Crop Rocks has announced that they are adding a new concert venue to serve as a place for live music.
The 400-capacity On Air Studio Concert Club is attached to the Crop Rocks restaurant at 1075 Old River Road and is being led by Crop Restaurant Group chef and managing partner Steve Schimoler, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
The venue bills itself as a multifaceted event space, featuring a large patio, spectacular views, indoor/outdoor stage and professional A.V and lighting capabilities in addition to our full catering kitchen.
Programming in On Air Studio will include weekly and monthly events ranging from Live Music, Comedy shows, Cleveland Sports Watch parties, intimate dinner theater shows, broadcast television programming, webcasted concerts, discussion/debates and live action demos.
The venue will be booked by The Elevation Group, which also handles booking for the newly renovated Goodyear Theater and Goodyear Hall concert venues in Akron. As well, former Rock and Roll Hall of Fame President and CEO Terry Stewart is a consulting partner for On Air Studio, the Plain Dealer reported.
The venue will have a private 'soft opening' on Saturday with a performance Boston-based band RIPE, with the venue's full schedule yet to be announced.
“The design was to be a multi-media venue," Schimoler told Cleveland Scene. "It’s taken us two months to dial it in. The bottom line is having a spot where we can have a diverse platform of content — live music, TV shows, plays. I think one of the key things is our ability to archive everything that goes on there. We don’t want to lose these gems of jams and shows. One of the most rewarding thing is the bands and musicians who have been here for the past two months. They go out of their way to say it’s the best-sounding venue in the city. They’re all in the production room afterward listening to the playback. We have it to be where we want it to be. We invested heavily in the technology. From the artist’s perspective, all the bells and whistles have been tailored to what they want." – Staff Writers
