Last week, I looked at the importance of music during events for keeping corporate event guests and participants energized and alert. What better way to unleash the power of music is there than to hold your event in a venue that celebrates music?
Once the home of rock and roll legend Elvis Presley, Graceland Mansion welcomes groups for weddings, special and corporate events. Event venues include The Pavilion with a capacity of 250 for dining and 300 for receptions, the Chrome Grille that can accommodate up to 110 guests, Rockabilly Diner with space for 65, and Elvis Presley Automobile Museum where 150 guests can dine surrounded by Elvis Presley's impressive automobile collection.
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is located in Cleveland, Ohio, where the first rock and roll concert took place. On-site there is a museum that traces the history of rock and roll and showcases rock and roll memorabilia. There are several rental packages including Rock Star Rental, Lights, Camera, Action Rental and Rock Round the Clock Meeting Space.
The Grammy Museum
The Grammy Museum features 30,000 square feet of interactive exhibits showcasing the best Grammy Award winning music. There will be something to appeal to just about every member of your party as a variety of genres including rock and roll, jazz, R&B, hip-hop, country and western, reggae, classical, and Latin are showcased. A 200 seat theater, 8,100 sq. ft terrace for up to 150 diners, a green room for up to 20 guests, and the museum lobby with room for 55 are available for private events.
In Detroit, the birthplace of the Motown Sound, Motown is a great place to discover where the Jackson 5, the Supremes, the Temptations and many other groups got their start. The venue can be privatized for small to medium groups.
