Singin' River Live

If you weren’t at the Grand Opening for Singin’ River Live last Friday, March 17th, you truly missed out on an incredible evening all about supporting homegrown musicians, chefs, brewers, and celebrating the first of many memorable live performances by artists local and across the globe. Singin’ River Live, the newest event space in downtown Florence, Alabama was recently completed by Rob and Michelle Jones, the owners of Singin’ River Brewing Co., the Shoals’ first micro brewery and home to many delicious brews that pay tribute to local culture including their Handy’s Gold blonde ale, The Swamper porter, and Ghost Bridge Imperial Stout. Rob and Michelle’s love for music has both influenced their beer names and most recently their newest venture: Singin’ River Live, a versatile event space that accommodates live music, weddings, corporate events, and small, private parties. 

The large industrial-style building boasts 5000 sq ft. of modern charm, features glass, double doors at the entrance, and a spacious room filled with rustic chandeliers, charcoal beams, and a large stage with curtains that easily accommodates a full band. The airy space, which holds over 700 people can be transformed into any kind of event whether it be a simple, modern wedding, rock show, or a grand ball. However,what’s most exciting is that this event space is going to bring more music to the Shoals. Singin’ River Live is ready for a multitude of incredible concerts with a Green Room for musicians back stage that includes comfortable furniture and an event space acoustically ready for all types of musical performances. 

The quality of the venue was made clear last Friday night as Daniel Elias + Exotic Dangers and Firekid performed at Singin’ River Live’s Grand Opening. The evening began at 7:00pm in the Singin’ River Brewing Co. taproom, a separate, but connected space, where guests enjoyed beer, wine, and Rivertown Coffee Co’s yummy food that included brisket biscuits, collard kraut, and comeback sauce. Listerhill was on site with a fun Photo Booth and helped get the party started leading up to the first performance, which began at 8:00pm. After Daniel Elias + Exotic Dangers wrapped up their rocking, high-energy set, Firekid took the stage and blew the crowd away with their fun, heartfelt performances that paid tribute to his home state and had the crowd singing and dancing along. 

The entire evening was unforgettable with delicious drinks, incredible sound and lighting, and music that left the crowd wanting more-- the St. Patrick’s Day evening set the stage for more promising performances by artists across the United States. It’s always exciting to support local businesses, but it’s even more exciting when the Shoals embraces and grows what it does best: music. There’s something magical in that Singing Tennessee River, and I’m so excited to see how it continues to shape our culture through beautiful venues like Singin’ River Live.
