Martin’s Vision

Martin, Jenna’s father, and our original master mind, wanted to create a place where people could see live music, at any time, for free; leaving it up to the listener to determine what the experience was worth to them.

In this friendly atmosphere, musicians—of a myriad of genres—felt welcome. Here they would have a platform to be themselves, while playing to an audience that really listens.

With a stage on the floor level, the room would have a living room feel, creating a space in which a more intimate connection could develop between the musicians and their audience.

Martin is no longer with us, but his legacy remains, as musicians, and their fans, continue to enjoy music here—in his living room.
