Music venues often indulge in dive reputations, where patrons avoid touching the walls and drink the booze because the tap can’t be trusted.
But Mill Town Music Hall, located at 1031 Alabama Avenue in Bremen, Ga., doesn’t offer alcohol. The venue is all about music and the experience.
General Manager Steve Bennett says instead of shot specials, fans will find the big-name performers with lower priced tickets.
“We wanted to create a fun, family-friendly entertainment venue,” Bennett said. “Because we don’t serve alcohol and are selective with our performers, people have grown to trust Mill Town to provide a safe environment with absolutely incredible entertainment.”
In addition to public and performer trust, Mill Town offers “state-of-the-art sound, lighting and video system,” Bennett said.
“We use three HD cameras and an onsite professional video director to broadcast real time footage on two giant screens flanking the stage during live events,” Bennett said.
The venue owners, Randall and Tena Redding, pride themselves on having invested in Bremen through purchase on a shopping center off I-20 that they renovated into the music hall.
The general manager said the Reddings recognized a “perfect opportunity to create something unique and wonderful here in Bremen.”
The music hall celebrate four years in business Jan. 28, 2016.
“God has had His hands in this from the very beginning,” Bennett said. “In just the [first] three years since we opened our doors, we’ve been blessed to be able to attract high quality performers like Toby Keith, Loretta Lynn, Kansas, the Gatlin Brothers, Kenny Loggins, Sara Evans, the Oak Ridge Boys, Charlie Daniels, Amy Grant, and even VeggieTales!”
The 1050-seat venue feels intimate to fans and performers. Bennett said performers comment about the spirit at Mill Town.
“It’s in the atmosphere and the attitude of everyone involved,” Bennett said. “We open every show with prayer, and I think that invites God’s love to permeate throughout the whole place.”
Plus, Bennett said the venue’s layout keeps fans close to the music.
“Our front row seats are only 10 feet away from the stage, and the furthest back you’ll ever get is a hundred feet away,” Bennett said. “Talk about an up-close view of your favorite performers!”
Kenny Loggins in 2014 said he enjoyed playing at Mill Town Music Hall.
“What an unexpected treat performing at Mill Town was,” Loggins said. “That room was filled with an exuberant audience that made me very happy to have Bremen, Georgia, be a part of my itinerary from now on.”
