Cincinnati Live Music Venues Index






In Cincinnati live music is big. There are a lot of places for you to play. I wanted to make sure I put together a nice index for all the Cincinnati Live Music Venues.

Sometimes it's hard to figure out where all the best spots your band or music project can play shows in some of these bigger cities and it's my hope that the music resources on this site will help save you some time rather than finding them all through word of mouth. There are some great places to play in this town. The Cincinnati live music scene has a lot to offer local ohio musicians as well as musicians traveling through.

From a one-time home turned bar/night club (Southgate House) to the bright, bright green Mad Frog home to many a legendary local musicians, the cincinnati live music scene is exciting to be a part of.
