Studio 281 "The Real Jazz Spot"
An Open Invitation To Partake In Lively Conversations And Jazz Amalgamations
Embedded along Peters Street, in the Historic Castleberry Hills District of Atlanta, sits a quaint unassuming loft. Studio 281 is a serene brick structure that blends in well with its surroundings. A red neon sign placed strategically in the corner of a large window beckons curious pedestrians to enter off of the sidewalk.
From the outside, the structure seems small. However, once inside the interior’s magnitude presents a gradual crescendo effect. The walls are gingerly scattered with photo prints of the great jazz artists of our era. There are even smatterings of one of a kind artwork too. The ductwork along with subtle lighting placed sporadically around the large open loft area helps to accentuate the presence and feel for live avant-garde jazz, which Studio 281 occasionally and proudly showcases. Studio 281 offers a light bill of fare menu and adult diversions (billiards, chess, and backgammon) for its patrons - all to encourage and enhance casual conversations and listening pleasures.
Studio 281 can accommodate 75 125 jazz aficionados easily says its proprietor, Henri Davenporte. A unique setting and venue with more than adequate space for artists to perform, is found when stepping into the "vault" a room so named for its thick and heavy swinging door. The acoustics in the vault are superb, while the seating arrangements in the room bring a closeness that both the artists and patrons emphatically enjoy. For a more intimate conversational setting, there is the "repose" a small sound proof area situated away from the stage. Artists will appreciate the amenities of the "green room" - to relax before and after performances.
All aspiring and accomplished jazz artists are always welcomed to send their EPKs and portfolios to Mr. Davenporte for his viewing.
Studio 281 is "The Real Jazz Spot" for anyone who is desperately yearning to hear an exceptional repertoire of distinct genres of jazz. The attire is casual but fashionable. Studio 281 is open to the public on Tuesday thru Saturday evenings, from 7pm until 2am.
If you are tired of the hip-hop crowd and want a new kind of experience embark on an open invitation to partake in lively conversations and jazz amalgamations with a more sophisticated ole school mix. For more information and directions for Studio 281, call 404-524-7247 or go to www.studio281.com.
