Grand Opening – Southern Rhythm Venue Entertaiment
The Chase Tyler Band will officially open Southern Rhythm Venue Entertainment on November 6th. That’s right, we have a new venue that promises to bring great entertainment to our area. The original venue, Triage then later Good Ole Boys has been transformed into a state-of-the-art entertainment venue. Southern Rhythm Venue Entertainment has taken on quite the transformation since owners Steve & Lisa McDaniel purchased the building. Initially, Lisa was against purchasing this building because of it’s condition. For years the building served as home for varmints. It would be an understatement to say the building was in bad shape. But Steve had a vision and Lisa bought in. That’s when the work began.
They were so committed to this venue, they started clean up before they officially purchased the venue this past mid-summer. The entire building was gutted to the exterior walls. Since they had no prior experience managing an event venue, both musicians and lighting engineers were consulted. The Result? The stage was enlarged from it’s original design and a killer PA was installed that includes twelve 15” sub woofers. The stage lighting has been strategically placed for maximum effect.
The building has a max occupancy of 444 for an intimate experience. Regardless of the event type there isn”t a bad seat in the house since there are no poles to obstruct your vision. There is a VIP Balcony area for small groups of 20-35 people. While the VIP area could easily support more than 25. Steve and Lisa are more concerned with the experience.
The beautifully finish on the epoxy floors blend into the decor which makes this such am inviting venue. The beautiful marble bar is enormous for such an intimate venue. Over the bar is an owners box (so to speak). From there, management can see the entire venue.
You could call this a family business since their children Laura and Gage are also involved. Steve handles the entertainment and Lisa the day to day operations. Laura and Gage, whatever needs to be done and they also will work behind the bar.
There was a soft opening this past Saturday, Micro Wrestling that had a near capacity audience.
The Official Grand Opening is this Saturday (11-6). The LSU/Alabama game will kick things off with free jambalaya and the first 50 people receive a Southern Rhythm T-Shirt. After the game The Chase Tyler Band will take the stage.
On November 13, Kendall Shaffer will perform his #1 hit on The Louisiana Country Chart and #1 on the Texas Regional Radio Report hit song Rollin Stone. Future shows include David Mitchell, Chris LeBlanc, Bag of Donuts and even a tribute band is planned. And it’s not all music they are bringing to the stage. For the ladies, the nationally touring "Girls Night Out” show is scheduled.
