The Stage in Miami

In the midst of Miami’s event season, one new kid has everyone buzzing.  The Stage has quietly given concert goers, music lovers and nightlife scenesters a preview of what’s to come early winter 2011 when the new entertainment venue officially opens.

During Miami Music Festival, The Stage held a three day event with live music acts including both established and coming local performers for the festival.  The Stage also opened its’ doors for another three day stint of live performances, during a time that many consider to be Miami’s biggest event week of the year, Art Basel Miami Beach.   When it officially opens on January 7h, 2011 at 9pm, The Stage will provide a space for aspiring and established musicians, artists and entertainers to showcase their talents.

The Stage is a 10,000 square foot entertainment venue that gives onlookers a birds-eye view of performances on their nearly 200 square foot stage.  Two garage style doors open to the outdoor space providing unobstructed views at nearly every angle.

Taking cues from old world New Orleans, Andrea Mejia designed The Stage with the charm and sophistication of the city in mind.  Make no mistake; The Stage isn’t just another good looking venue, it’s has soul.  With state-of-the-art acoustics, lighting and equipment, The Stage will undoubtedly introduce a whole new experience of authentic talent to the City and is sure to be a favorite for both entertainers and the audience.

With performances from touted artists like Joe Donato, Stokeswood (from Atlanta), Brendan O’Hara, Mayday!, The Legendary JC’s (from Orlando), 2Am Club (from Los Angeles) and Arboles Libres already under their belt, The Stage’s owners Carlos F. Garcia and Sasha Torres are eager to officially open to the public.  “We’ve already received such an outpouring of gratitude from Miami’s music community,” states Torres. “We can’t wait to give the Miami community a dose of live music and entertainment on a regular basis,” Garcia finished.  Garcia and Torres are no strangers to the world of live entertainment.  Torres has a background in performance and entertainment, where he’s directed and performed in plays as well as written screenplays.  Garcia has made a name for himself across the South as a discoverer of new talent, with his own radio show Sound Theory Live on WDNA 88.9, www.wdna.org, which spotlights new music acts each Friday night at 7pm.

The Stage is the latest to join Miami’s Music Corridor which stretches from the outskirts of Brickell to the Brooklyn-esque Design District.
