Legendary Ohio Venues
By Musicians, For Musicians!

Have you played some amazing shows at some very special Ohio venues? Have you seen an amazing show at a venue in Ohio that is in a class of it's own? If so, we want to hear about it. This forum is here so that you, the musicians and music lovers, can share your experiences in Ohio's most legendary places to play.

When I say legendary I don't mean that it had to have been here for 10 plus years. Sure those established places are awesome and we want to hear about them too, but really, just any place that you think has something special about it and is capable of producing a great show consistently.

I remember some great places I have played at over the years. Places that just seem to produce epic shows and experiences every weekend. I have tried to list most of those places on this site but nothing takes the place of personal experience and stories. If you have a good story or a place that your band loves to rock that in your opinion is just awesome, tell us about it. Do you have pictures to show us? That is even better. Let us know where this place is so we can all go there and rock it! This kind of information sharing will keep all you musicians informed and keep our legendary Ohio venues strong with new bands to play them.

Now, I don’t want this forum to get bogged down too heavily with a bunch of standards. Everybody’s opinion is different about what qualifies as legendary and honestly nobody is wrong. Like so many things when it comes to music, it is really a matter of taste and opinion. So please feel free to share a story about a venue that you love and think is worthy of other musicians knowing about. If you think it’s legendary then it is. Here are some things to consider in your stories:

-Where is it? -What kind of music do they feature? -What kind of crowd does it pull? -Why do you like it? -How long has it been there?

have fun guys! Hope we all learn a few things!
