Rockford Listening Room is an intimate venue that seats approximately 55 people. The wonderful room of old hardwood floors boasts natural sound amplification and many performers have enjoyed performing "unplugged".
With a relaxed friendly atmosphere audiences feel as much a part of the performances as the musicians do. Concerts feel more like a private performance at someone's home.
No alcohol is served but light refreshments and snacks are available. And all concerts are free and open to the public. Show your gratitude with a generous donation to all who perform here.
Doors open shortly after 6pm and concerts begin at 7pm unless posted.
