Foundry Hall books performances in and around South Haven. Having moved from the Eagle Street location where Foundry Hall called home for seven years, we are now collaborating with other non-profit organizations, downtown businesses, private homes and public outdoor spaces continuing to offer quality music experiences. We support musician’s performing their own original music and like to offer a variety of musical genres.
Being a non-profit, all volunteer organization we book according to our availability and try to thoughtfully spread concerts over the calendar and our venue options. We generally don’t offer guarantees, but instead do a generous 70% split of the ticket sales with the artists. We usually can find volunteers to put up artists for the night as well. Publicity includes our website and facebook event listing, press releases to the South Haven Tribune and Hearld-Paladium, our email newsletter and some posters and flyers.
Foundry Hall is also coordinating the Riverfront Concert Series with the City of South Haven. This series is made possible by sponsorships and generous grant funding from the South Haven Community Foundation. The series takes place from the end of May to Labor Day on Thursday evenings at picturesque Riverfront Park. There is no stage, sound or lighting at the park, this is a less formal setting and artists are expecting to bring their own sound equipment.
The series is an opportunity to showcase larger big bands, including the all-volunteer Casco Band and Lake Effect Jazz Band. Several local bands are mainstays of the series and Foundry Hall works to add new sounds to the series each year. Primarily a local and regional showcase of artists, we are always taking suggestions for new artists.
Foundry Hall hosted Rhythm on the River, a one-day free music festival this past July. Planning will begin soon for the 2017 festival.
In addition to Rhythm on the River, Foundry Hall plans to host a jazz festival in September of 2017. Planning is underway for this Friday and Saturday evening festival tentatively planned for Dyckman park in front of the Huron Street Pavilion in downtown South Haven.
