Double Door Inn Anniversary Reunion Show, December 17, 2017

For over 43 years, the Double Door Inn was more than an old house on Charlottetowne Avenue. It was recognized as one of the oldest blues music venues in the United States, bringing in musicians of all genres to Charlotte, NC. It was the place that you went to hang out on Friday afternoon, or Saturday night. To meet old friends, and make new ones. What had once been the house built by the Wearn family, one of the prominent families in Charlotte during the early 20th centuries, become the home of the Charlotte music scene, and the place where owner Nick Karres oversaw countless nights of music and memories.

While we cannot bring it back, this show is a homecoming for the many that had the Double Door Inn pass through them, just as much as we passed through it. On the week that the venue would have celebrated its 44th anniversary, we bring together some of the musicians that made the Double Door their home. Lenny Federal Band, Crisis, and Woody Mitchell & Loafers Glory. We also will screen Live From The Double Door Inn, the documentary about the venue’s history and final days. We also welcome back Nick Karres and his family, who have been part of our own extended families for many years. 

Gather, return, and let the music play on.
