Basement Music Series

In the winter of 2004 VAE converted the downstairs basement studio in an old brick mill into a cabaret-club. The plan was to present once a month, high quality music that was culturally diverse. With tablecloths, flowers and candles on the tables, professional lighting and a bar, the 130 seat venue was ready for an audience. From late fall through April each year the Basement Music Series (BMS), brought in bands from as far away as Cuba, Tuva and Virginia and from the music hub of Brooklyn, New York. Offering a huge range of music from Grammy nominated Omar Sosa, to BMS favorite Howard Fishman, and the Tuvan throat singers ALASH the BMS grew to twice a month. The people come for one reason, to listen to music, and this what the bands love the most about presenting their art. The intimate setting in which they perform allows for an experience that both artist and audience go home not forgetting and anticipating a return. In moving to the Masonic Hall, we have brought along the same ingredients to create the vibe and listening room you’ve come to love. We hope you enjoy yourselves and spread the word!
