Other than BB King's and Lucille's, what are some other clubs within say 10 miles. A place to set up for Electric and or Acoustic?

Hey Sue,

try going to jambase.com and search on shows in New York. If you look at who is playing where, you should be able to find plenty of clubs that would be an appropriate venue for the genre of music you want to book....

The Cutting Room is a really cool place. My buddy and I left the Beacon show a couple of years back, and went with friends over there. And Low and Behold, Derek Trucks was there!! My buddy comes back from the Restroom, and says. "Dude, your NOT going to believe this?" So I am like ok whats up?..... "Derek Trucks is right over there!!" It was cool as hell. We had just left the Beacon and here he is. Got to talk to him for about 15 minutes or so, great guy. I got a picture of me, my buddy and Derek. I gotta find it so I can post it on the Pictures page!!
Anyhoo, here's their website Susea

I'd give these guys a call. I know the ownership has changed hands from the days I used to hang out there a lot but it's a great spot tucked underground between the seaport and the World Trade Center.

What size place are you lookin for?

Lion's club has a new name. It is in a very nice location.

I loved Blender where the Mule afterparty for George Porter was held and the Highline Ballroom where I just saw NMAS. Both are excellent venues. Nice size about 1000 capacity in each more or less just a ball park figure.

The Canal Room is smaller maybe about 300 people and also in a good location. Downtown, in an easily accessible location is the Kinitting Factory. They have a number of rooms. Sth St Seaport is not that accessible by train. Just fyi.

Anyway, you have to say how many people more or less.

Ang

Not sure if I can help,but maybe with some more info.Are you looking to see who else is playing while you're in NYC?Are you trying to book a band?If so,do they want to get paid,or are they just looking for a place that will let them play?Planning a party?Are you restricted to Manhattan?My part of Queens is not far from Manhattan at all.

Almost all,if not all,of Manhattan is within 10 miles of BB's.

I end up at The Red Lion on Bleeker with a regularity. Live music every night until 4am. After the Beacon, I usually take a train to The West Village, smash a donor kebab, and have a couple of beers while listening to some live acoustic stuff.

I HIGHLY recommend the Knitting Factory. Very New York. They cater to some of the best fusion artists around. This is where the envelope is pushed and genres go out the window. We saw the Stanton Mooore Trio with Skerik last year when we were in town. They wound up having about 5 sax players by the end. Phenomenal stuff!
http://knittingfactory.com

Also, if you like jazz, Lod knows NYC is the place. My absolute favorite is the Village Vanguard in, where else, but the Village on Monday nights with Thad Jones' and Mel Lewis' Vanguard Jazz Orchestra. Amazing improvisational big-band jazz.
http://www.villagevanguard.net

Also in the Village is, of course, the Blue Note.
http://www.bluenote.net/newyork/index.shtml

A little further up in midtown is the Charlie Parker inspired Birdland.
http://www.birdlandjazz.com

Also in the Theatre District is Iridium, which features the Les Paul trio every Monday night.
http://www.iridiumjazzclub.com

Whenever I am in New York, jazz is what I go see. There is no place else on earth with such amazing variety.

I'm not sure but I think they renovated it and changed the name to Sullivan Hall recently. I'm going there to see Eric Lindell this weekend. Also metioned already was Highline Ballroom where North Mississippi Allstars played last week. Nice place, great sound and easy location to get to.

No idea where we were last year but we stumbkled into an area that seemed full of irish pubs. Seemed like it was a block of them.
Also we ventured into Bowery bars for great beer, met people from all over the world and great pizza near-by. Bars were near bridge to Brooklyn and Chinatown.

Ding ding ding! We have a winner! Im a Lionheart too. You might consider the Back Fence too. Heck, lots of places less commercial than BBs!

One night, a couple of years ago, I went to see Paul Barrere and Fred Tackett at BBs. Jimmy Vivino sat in. At the end of the night, my buddy and I stumbled out onto the sidewalk to see Vivino hailing a cab. I asked him where we were to find live music after midnight in NYC. He told me to go the The Red Lion. Place is definitely a good time. Nothing earth shattering musically, but a comfortable place to swill a few before the sun comes up. And, seriously, check out the donor kebabs at the place near the corner of Bleeker and MacDougal. You won't be sorry.

Yeah, Red Lion, now called Sullivan Hall. Nice small place in the Village. A very cool area. Saw the DTB there years ago.
