BackStage Lounge Gainesville


BackStage Lounge was orignially started as Eddie C’s Hot Rock Lounge in the early 1970’s by Ed Clark. It was located on south 13th street down the street from Domino’s and Steak and Shake. After years of growth amongst the local population Ed Clark moved the 13th street location to 1315 south main street; a larger venue for rock and roll. After many years of continued growth Ed Clark’s then manager Rick Tingle took over as owner. The microphone was passed from one owner to the next in a continued effort to bring not only local music but independent rock and roll to the area. Many big name acts have stopped by over the years ranging from Red Jumpsuit Apperatus to Sister Hazel. If you would like to have your band play at BackStage Lounge please feel free to give us a call or email Ed Waldick directly.
