The recently opened Music Row Country Club on 16th Ave. S. provides a “home base” for songwriters, musicians, artists and industry professionals. MRCC is hosting an Open House on Mon., June 11th 4:00 pm–7:00 pm providing food, drinks and entertainment including a dunking booth with proceeds benefiting MusiCares.
“It’s a brand new concept and has taken off here on the Row,” says MRCC President Jimi Whitelaw. “Basically, we are a private club catering to the professional community. We saw a need for songwriters, publishers, label reps, managers, artists, etc. to have a place where they can meet and network. There are a lot of hit songwriters out of a deal. We provide a place on the Row for them to write, take meetings and do business.”
Located at 1010 16th Ave. S., MRCC offers seven writer rooms, a business center where members can check their email, surf the web, etc., a coffee lounge, a conference room, and an executive suite. Other amenities include individual business phone lines with answering service and the option to use the facility’s address as a drop off location for song pitches.
“The concept of the MRCC came from a brainstorming session I had with a handful of Music Row’s elite,” says Whitelaw. I just ran with it and it’s serving the community in a really cool way.”
Membership is $16.99 a month or $175 a year. Click here for more information.
