The Nashville Social Club opens Swan Music Hall in Carson City this Friday | News from Carson City, Nevada

Event date:

August 12, 2022 (all day)

“We’re thrilled to be making music history in northern Nevada,” said Kitty McKay, co-owner of the new restaurant, lounge and music venue, the Nashville Social Club in Carson City. “The very first show at ‘The Swan’ Music Hall is this Friday 12th August.”

The Swan (newly remodeled in the other half of the sprawling building) embodies the centerpiece of an iconic Americana music hall. World-class artists from across the country are lining up to come to Carson City to play in the tradition of legendary venues like Third and Lindsley in Nashville, The Palms Playhouse in Winters, California and The Birchemere in Washington, DC.

An expression of co-owner John Procaccini’s passion for presenting live music in an intimate, moving setting, The Swan has a 240-person capacity, an expansive stage and state-of-the-art concert sound reinforcement and lighting. Concert-goers are also treated to the hip vibe of the space, with its dark walls and ceiling, Art Deco swan-themed wallpaper, chandeliers, and hardwood floors.

“We have something for everyone at The Swan,” says the club’s entertainment director, Evangeline Elston. “The Swan will be hosting sit-down concerts, dance parties and many with a mix of both. We bring all kinds of music: country, folk, blues, rock n roll, gospel, even jazz from all corners of the country. Our approach is to include artists from diverse backgrounds and genres within the broad spectrum of Americana Roots music – those who are masters of their craft with world-class performance,” said Elston.

McKay is quick to say, “You may not have heard of these acts before their show, but once you experience them, you will never forget them.”

The Ultrafaux Ensemble, a supergroup from Baltimore, Maryland, will liven up the venue’s grand opening on August 12th. The group delights with their original music inspired by gypsy swing, be-bop, Balkan music, bluegrass, swing, funk and blues. They have wowed audiences at top music festivals and concert halls around the world. Hot Club of Baltimore founder Michael Joseph Harris was named one of the best musicians in town by Baltimore Style Magazine, and the show will also feature two-time Grammy winner Evan Price, Ross Howe on rhythm guitar and bassist Dexter Williams .

When asked how the Ultrafaux Ensemble sounds, Entertainment Director Evangeline Elston grinned and said, “The Ultrafaux Ensemble sounds like pure foot tapping, head tapping and joy.”

The August 12 concert will be a seated show, and guests looking to jump out of their seats and groove can find danceable spaces around the venue and adjacent Studio B.
