Kerns Music Shop
Unwind in Kerns Music Shop.
In 2014, the lounge (more recently known as "The Green Room") reclaimed the name it originally held in 1946 – Kerns Music Shop – when a local trombone player named Johnny Kerns opened the store front. It quickly became a gathering spot for musicians and music fans, many of which witnessed unique live performances there by up-&-coming stars such as Frank Sinatra, Harry James, Sarah Vaughan, and Nat King Cole, who each performed a song or two in the shop. Kerns Music shop supported and serviced musicians from the region’s top bands as well as upstart musical students like a young Quincy Jones who Kerns recalls getting his first horn there. This former store front is steeped in music history and restoring the name is a fitting way to commemorate and honor this history.
The lounge provides an intimate atmosphere and features a full bar.
Kerns Music Shop will open one hour prior to scheduled door time for concerts and events. For select events, opening time may be subject to change.
