“No Housage of Blues would be finish without a water tower,” shelp Ron Bension, president of House of Blues Entertainment.

The previous Housage of Blues location, referred to as the Mouse Housage bereason it was nestled within Downtown Disney, where it opened in 2001, did not include a water tower or a Foundation Room/VIP Club, both staples at the other places throughout the country.

The sight lines in the major concert hall are vastly enhanced over those of the previous venue, through tiered seated and also standing locations to aid encertain a clear watch of the phase. The phase additionally has actually been lowered to an elevation of around 4 feet, 6 inches, Bension shelp, bringing the perdeveloping artists also closer to the audience.

As much as live entertainment, Oselection County punk rock band Social Distortion will kick points off for the venue, performing Feb.28 and March 1. The band has a long history with House of Blues, having actually perdeveloped countless multiple-evening scolors in Anaheim and also at the place on Sunset Boulevard, which closed in 2015.

“I don’t think there’s really one more band in Oselection County that is Orange County that should be opening us up,” said Ben Weeden, chief operating officer of Housage of Blues Entertainment.

The venue has booked a stellar and varied lineup of performers for its initially couple of months, including neighborhood talent such as indie darlings the Growlers (March 14, April 1-2), Irvine-based rock band Thrice (March 7), south Ovariety County success Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness (March 12) and Long Beach-based Mexideserve to singer-songwriter and also multi-instrumentalist Julieta Venegas (March 16).

“Our mantra has actually constantly been unity and diversity, and also what deserve to I say about our lineup – we have all of that and then some,” Weeden shelp. “The response in Ovariety County has actually been amazing. I am slightly biased, but I don’t think that tbelow has actually been a lineup for any type of club, Housage of Blues or any kind of (venue) roughly the nation that is as solid as what we have actually.”
