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 continue to be open two hours prior to scheduled door time for concerts and events. For select events, opening time may be subject to change.
