Best Place in Town to Hear Live Music: Readers' Choice

Be it a rock 'n' roll band, solo violinist or jazz trio, live music energizes your outing.

There is no music like live music ... a live performance can be the background to a pleasant dinner or the focal point of an evening out.

This week we want to know: where in town is the best place to hear live music? Is there a restaurant with strolling mariachi band? Or perhaps a harpist that plays at tea. Or maybe a rollicking rock venue that's a great place to socialize.

Beginning today -- Sunday, May 20 -- and through 5 p.m. Wednesday, May 23, we'll be asking for your recommendations for places to hear live music.

Give us your recommendation in the comments section below. With your help, we'll put together a list of nominees. Then look for our poll on Thursday, May 24 and vote! We'll select a winner at 5 p.m. Friday, May 25 and announce it in a story on Saturday, May 26.

In judging, we'll consider comments, poll votes and reviews in our complete directory of local businesses. Be sure to check out our contest rules in the PDF at right.

Hi Pauline, we're looking for the best venue, not the best band. You could nominate the auditorium, or the specific location where the band plays most.

Domenics is good. Nice atmosphere. The Melody Inn is good with a nice big dance floor. It had a bad rep in the past, but it's much improved. Nice big stage, dance floor. Good place. And, even though it's slightly out of the Falls, The Getaway Pub in the valley is cool. Nice dance floor, good food. That's all I've got for now. Maybe more later...

Thanks for the nomination, Earl. I can only include the Melody Inn since it's within city limits. But yes, do nominate another if you can think of a good place.

The melody. What a joke. A real rathole
