Bars come and go but the Murray Hill Theatre is here to stay. Fifteen years ago Tony Nasrallah opened the Hill as a safe alternative to the bar and nightclub scene and today, despite doubts from jaded naysayers, the venue continues to keep its doors open and its youthful audience entertained each and every week. To commemorate their reign as the longest-running live music venue and nightclub in Jacksonville, the Murray Hill Theatre will host a weekend of good old fashioned fun this month.
The milestone weekend kicks off on the 12th with a very special Reunion Swing Night. Founding members DJ ManO’Light and swing instructor Sensei Young Smith will resurrect this Murray Hill favorite. Tickets for this event are just $5. Then on the13th award winning alt-rockers Switchfoot will perform along with locals Don’t Sigh Daisy and Quiet Science. This show will bring fans of all walks of life so get your tickets today for just $20 or try your chances at the door when they’re $25. Finally on August 14th the Hill will pull out all the stops for a massive concert event that you do not want to miss. National recording artists Between the Trees and Sent By Ravens will perform with local favorites Second Thief, Acadence, Coming This Fall and 15 more regional and local acts. Cover for this colossal, day-long party are just $10 in advance and $15 on the day of show. This is a great opportunity to see some of Jacksonville’s best positive acts all in one place so take advantage of it.
Advanced tickets plus a limited amount of 3-day tickets at a cost of $30 will be available for purchase online on Murray Hill Theatre’s website: www.mhtrocks.com. Visit the website or call the event hotline for more information.
