Originally designed to be the ladies lounge and orchestra area to the theater this uniquely beautiful space called for an understated elegance evocative of the period. This venue lounge’s mood is enhanced within as you transition from the main room to the back lounge and a more surreal aesthetic introduces what use to be the orchestra pit area. The inspiration of “moths drawn to a flame” called for dim lighting and elements were selected to transport patrons into a warm summer night on the streets of Shanghai – or a far away fantasy location. Both lounges were created to bring an exciting movement within time and fantasy

About Boston

Being one of the oldest cities in America and the starting point for the American Revolution, you can expect a ton of history, culture, and diversity in Boston. The city is home to some of the most iconic sites you’ll find anywhere, a wealth of higher learning opportunities, nature, and a thriving business and entertainment environment that has something for everyone.

The temperature stays fairly mild in spring and summer and there’s plenty to do outdoors. The only time you really have to worry about mother nature not playing fair is during the winter months when it can go from relatively mild to downright frigid in the blink of an eye. As long as that doesn’t deter you, then Boston is a great place to put on a concert.

Concert Options in Boston

When putting together a performance, it takes a lot more than picking a concert venue, you have to figure out all the logistics, make sure you sell tickets, merchandise, and lots of other little things. Here are a few of the things to consider when putting on a concert in Boston.

  • Venue
    One of the major considerations when picking a concert venue is whether or not there is enough seating. When we say seating, we mean actual physical seats as well as standing room. Most venues have a maximum capacity so knowing this ahead of time can be a big help when planning your concert.

  • Lights
    Making sure you have the right lighting is another major component of any good show, whether it’s an orchestral composition or a rock concert, the right lighting really helps set the mood and make the show a success. Some venues include lighting as part of their own setup, but it helps to look for outside suppliers and purchase or rent your own gear.

  • Sound Equipment
    Of course, having proper sound equipment is a must for any concert. Microphones, speakers, technical equipment, all of these things are key to an amazing show. Equipment that works well (and backup equipment) is required for the perfect sound. Hire audio technicians who know the range of sound needed for your Boston concert venue.

Concert Companies in Boston

It helps to make sure you have everything you need when it’s time for the concert. Since you can’t always rely on the venue to provide for you, look to local suppliers to get what you need for your next concert.

  • Virtuosity Musical Instruments
    If you’re in need of any brass or wind instruments, say for a big band showcase, then Virtuosity Musical Instruments is the place to go. Featuring a full range of new and antique instruments as well as general gear, this shop is good for new musicians or seasoned pros. Chances are, if they don’t have what you’re looking for, you’ll struggle to find it elsewhere.

  • Boston Lighting Rental Services
    If you’re looking to make sure you have all the right lighting for your concert, then you need a lighting supplier that can meet all your needs in one place. From spotlights to wedding lights, automatic programmable lights and more, Boston Lighting Rental Services can set you up with the lighting you need to make any kind of concert spectacular.

  • Boston Audio Rentals
    After lighting and instruments, you need sound equipment. Speakers, subwoofers, tuners, mixers and all the gear you could ever need you’ll find at Boston Audio Rentals. Even if you don’t think you need much for the concert venue, it’s always good to have a backup or have extra equipment; after all, a show’s no good with blown speakers.

Pros and Cons of Concerts in Boston

Boston is a cultural and historical center of the United States. With all that history and culture though, there are some downsides. Here are some of the advantages and disadvantages of holding a concert in Boston.

Advantages

  • Higher education
    If the crowd you’re looking to draw in for your concert is the college crowd, then you’re in luck in Boston. With many great colleges and universities, Boston is one of the better cities to go to for learning.

  • Good climate
    If your venue isn’t completely indoors, then you’re in luck; most of the year Boston has a wonderfully mild climate. This means that so long as you plan ahead, mother nature will play nice during your concert.

  • Diverse population
    If you’re looking for a place to get into a different music scene or just meet new people, then Boston is the place. Culturally diverse, Boston has a crowd for any type of concert you might want to put together.

Disadvantages

  • High cost of living
    Like most well-developed cities, Boston has a high cost of living. When trying to rent a venue for a concert, this translates to higher rental prices and possibly even higher fees to rent gear and services.

  • Driving is a pain
    While Boston is easy to get around in by foot, if you drive in that city you’ll likely find yourself frustrated. You should probably find another way to get to your concert venue.

  • Winter is harsh
    While the other seasons are mild, winter is a different story. While it is not always severe, when it is, it can be difficult to attend any kind of event, even concerts. If you’re planning on holding a concert in the winter in Boston, be prepared to possibly get snowed in.

Famous Locations in Boston

  • Boston National Historical Park
    This is actually a collection of sites recognized by the national park service, available for tours and visits. From the Battle of Bunker Hill to the suffrage movement there’s something for everyone to see.

  • Fenway Park
    If you’re looking for some classic Boston flair, then the best thing to do is hit Fenway Park and catch a Red Sox game. This is a perfect outing to have some fun and loosen up before a big concert. Plus, who doesn’t want to root for the home team?

  • Boston Museum of Science
    If you’re looking for something hands-on and educational, then the Boston Museum of Science is the place to go. With tons of different exhibits that are changing all the time, this museum offers a unique look at science and technology that you’ll never forget. Why not learn something before you go rock out at a concert?
