House of Blues, Cleveland
House of Blues
House of Blues Cleveland opened in 2004 and is located in the East 4th St. entertainment district in the heart of downtown Cleveland. Retrofitted into the old Woolworth’s department store building and spanning 61,000 square feet, entrances open to the newly beautified and historic Euclid Avenue. House of Blues Cleveland pays homage with numerous pieces of local art done by artist Peter Wood and iron work throughout the venue in honor of Cleveland’s strong manufacturing history. In keeping with tradition, the House of Blues Cleveland displays the "Crazy Quilt" and keeps a metal box of mud from the Delta Mississippi underneath its stage.
The House of Blues grew out of founder Isaac Tigrett's love for the unique American art form known as the "the Blues". Weaned on this music during his early childhood in Tennessee, one of Isaac's goals was to introduce the world to the music of the rural south, including the Blues, Rhythm and Blues, Gospel, Jazz and Roots-abed Rock & Roll. The very first House of Blues opened its doors in a converted historical house in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1992 and is home to live music, original folk art, and delta-inspired cuisine. The House of Blues is dedicated to educating and celebrating the history of Southern Culture and African American artistic contributions to music and art. Our mission is to create:
A profitable, principled global entertainment company.
To celebrate the diversity and brotherhood of world culture.
To promote racial and spiritual harmony through love, peace, truth, righteousness and non-violen
