Attending the VIP party Tuesday night at The B.O.B.’s new addition, 20 Monroe Live, was a heck of a way to be introduced to the newest addition to the downtown Grand Rapids entertainment scene. One word, WOW! Another word, COOL!

I have been watching this building go up since they began construction, our studios are next door, and I couldn’t wait to see what was inside. Impressive!

The art deco retro interior, I love that, the Gilmore Collections folks say, is intended to create a comfortable environment reminiscent of America’s great clubs throughout the years. Additionally, it will be one of the most versatile properties in the HOBE (House of Blues) portfolio featuring a movable stage and various configurations.

How big is it? The facts are a full capacity of 2580 with scalable options of 1200, 1600, 2200. Reserved seating shows will showcase a full capacity of 1700 seated, with scalable options of 500-1200. The venue is equipped with state-of-the-art sound, lights and production capabilities.

With lots of acts already booked for this year, and many more to come, we’ll probably see more that 100 shows in their first year alone.

20 Monroe Live officially opened last night with Trombone Shorty. Tonight it’s Umphrey’s McGee, Friday night Lynyrd Skynyrd, Saturday night Shinedown, an 18+ show, and that’s just the first weekend. Peter Frampton is coming up along with the Verve Pipe, Pop Evil, and many, many more.

Grand Rapids and West Michigan seem to be very excited that this new venue is now open. Since tickets for all booked show, through mid April, have gone on sale, over 22,000 have sold. Better get your favorite show before their gone.
