GRAND RAPIDS, Mich — A popular venue in downtown Grand Rapids is celebrating a milestone. February 1 marks the first anniversary for 20 Monroe Live.
Since its debut in early 2017, the state-of-the-art entertainment venue has hosted 154 events, 24 of which were sold out. The venue has also seen more than 180,000 guests come through its doors.
“We want to just thank Grand Rapids for being so welcoming to us and being so supportive of the venue in general,” says marketing manager Amber Stokosa, who became the first full-time employee for 20 Monroe Live. “We’re just really happy to add more great live music to the scene.”
While the focus is mostly on live music, Stokosa says they’re also focused on making sure there’s something for everyone to enjoy. That includes participating in Gilda’s Laughfest this coming March.
The venue is hosting two concerts this weekend: Blues Traveler and George Clinton.
Limited edition merchandise will also be sold to celebrate their first year.
More than a dozen events are scheduled in February alone, with popular artists coming later in 2018, including Jack White, Marilyn Manson, Jeezy, Ron White, and Weird Al Yankovic.
