The Summit Music Hall is our largest and newest venue having opened in July 2010. I had been looking for a larger capacity venue for a long time. I needed a place where I could take the bands that had outgrown the Marquis or the Black Sheep. I was doing shows at other larger venues but they weren’t mine and I couldn’t control all of the things that make a good experience for the bands and the fans. I read an article in the Westword that Bash had closed and the space was available. I quickly called my friend John who was a commercial realtor and got him to set a meeting. The place needed work (a lot of work!) but it was perfect. Perfect size, perfect location, I had found it! We signed a lease and took possession. I’ll never forget the first day we walked in. It was Ben Davis (my GM at the time) and me. It was March and the snow was melting. There was water pouring in from the ceiling in the back of the club. (I was thinking, how could the previous tenants have been open and doing business like this??) We got the water turned on and there were plumbing leaks everywhere. I think I was going to cry. “What did I get myself into?” I thought. Well, we rolled up our sleeves and got to work. It was a long and expensive process, but we got the place fixed up and opened in July 2010. Since this time, we have had some truly incredible bands at the Summit. New bands, old bands and true legends have all graced the stage in our short existence. Westword voted us “Best New Venue” in 2011. The Summit has been a huge success and we continue to reinvest in the venue to create the best experience possible. In 2014 we installed new PA. It’s an Outline GTO C-12. There is nothing in town that can touch it. This PA is bad ass and Westword voted it “Best Sound System in 2015”! We have many other improvements on the list and will get them done as we make more money to reinvest. It’s not easy being an independent. We don’t have the deep pockets that some of our competitors have, so we have to do things the old fashion way. Hard work and creativity prevail for us. But that’s ok. It means a lot to be self-sustaining. It’s empowering. I am super proud of the staff we have at Summit. They are second to none and have worked to create a really special venue for the bands and their fans. We’ll be here for years to come, putting smiles on faces and creating long lasting memories.
