The Legends Room:
The National Blues Museum’s state-of-the-art Legends Room is the museum’s live music space and is available to rent for private events, complete with high-quality sound equipment and opportunities for amazing local live music! The space feels wide-open and can fit a formal or casual atmosphere. With windows facing downtown St. Louis, the Legends Room has a memorable, night-life vibe. The space is also home to the museum’s Howlin’ Friday concert series and weekly jam session, Sittin’ on the Porch, where musicians of all skill levels (including you, for real) can get up and play. So if your weekend event or convention lines up with one of our shows, make sure to stop by.
