Ardmore Music Hall is established as one of the premiere landing spots in the Philadelphia area for nationally touring musical acts, and is a rock club with a rich and long history at 23 East. Due to its geographic location on the Main Line, close proximity to the City of Philadelphia (3 miles), and an upcoming calendar full of a diverse range of artists, AMH draws from virtually every demographic group in the greater Philadelphia area.
The room holds as much legend as any local venue in Philadelphia or the surrounding suburbs, known through the years as 23 East Cabaret (1980-1994), Brownies 23 East (1995-2012) and as of 2013, The Ardmore Music Hall. The legendary 23 East Cabaret lived within the same walls, and hosted an impressive array of artists from The Dave Matthews Band, to The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Ramones, Blues Traveler, Hootie & The Blowfish, Phish, The Hooters, Joan Osborne and so many more. Since the Music Hall’s inception in 2013, the club has hosted artists as famed and wide ranging as George Clinton & P-Funk, The Hooters, Toots & the Maytals, The Psychedelic Furs, Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Stanley Clarke, members of the Grateful Dead / The Doors / Phish, Macy Gray, Television, Snarky Puppy, Steve Earle and many more.
The club is independently owned and booked. Chris Perella and his team have partnered with Peter Martin & Biff Gottehrer- owners of the Ripplewood restaurant next door- to create an unparalleled fan and artist experience. Perella managed The Blockley between 2009 and 2013, and has overseen AMH operations & bookings since, bringing a robust lineup of live music ranging from rock to funk, jam, roots, adult contemporary, Americana and everything in between. The club has held more than 75 sold out concerts, and the AMH team have also hosted Live from the Lot twice- an outdoor concert / festival experience in the back parking lot with Dr. John, Snarky Puppy, Soulive & many more.
Features of Ardmore Music Hall include a state-of-the-art sound system, a wide dance space, seating options, a low and intimate stage, optional seating with great sight lines, 20+ craft beers on draught, and a balcony viewing area for larger events.
