April 2022 Feinstein’s at Hotel Carmichael is opening its doors and its stage to live music from local artists and invites you to come check it out! Enjoy the intimate nightclub environment that Feinstein’s boasts, signature drinks and live performances weekly. Feinstein’s at Hotel Carmichael Operations Manager Kelley Nichols spoke about the establishment’s latest development and who the target audiences are for these live performances. Literally and Figuratively Opening Doors to Local Acts “I’m excited to see it take off and am really looking forward to see how it develops,” Nichols expressed. “I’m scheduling single artists, duos and trios that have been reaching out to me on email to play in Feinstein’s. It gives these artists who’ve been wanting to play an opportunity to be on a great stage in a wonderful room, and it’s only a $12 cover at the door. If you’re a hotel guest, it’s free!” Nichols is working with her own industry contacts as well as with the organizers of Carmel’s PorchFest who have given Nichols their list of bands. Nichols added, “PorchFest has been very gracious to give me a list of acts that are on their roster, and it’s an opportunity for me to see people that I’ve never seen or met before. I'm hoping that by bringing in these different bands that have a following, they’ll bring their fans, and we can hit the younger demographic.” All of the upcoming acts will be listed on Feinstein at Hotel Carmichael’s website, but they will not be preticketed events like the Feinstein’s series shows are. Since it is a “bar” situation, admission for these live shows is 21 and older. ATI Presents: Open Mic Night! Actors Theatre of Indiana’s (ATI’s) open mic nights are the perfect no-judgement zone opportunity, a place where like-minded fans and artists can appreciate each other and the joy of making music! Now is your chance to sing on the beautiful Feinstein’s at Hotel Carmichael stage! Nichols shared with me that she is working with ATI on presenting these open mic nights four times this year. These will be ticketed events, general admission, with a $15 cover, but people can choose their seats. “We’re excited to bring this to Feinstein’s at Hotel Carmichael,” Nichols said. “Feinstein’s/54 Below does a Broadway sing-along series, so I’m really excited that ATI is helping us get something like that under our belt!” Check out feinsteinshc.com for a list of all the incredible acts that are slated to perform at Feinstein’s at Hotel Carmichael and enjoy a nightlife again with your fellow live music enthusiasts!
