Not Just A Drummer, But A Promoter
Posted On 12/11/2007 15:10:56 by VinceAdame
Announcing The Grand Opening of The Astoria Event Center
and exclusive partnership with Adame Artists Presents.

Vince Adame to be concert promoter/producer of record for
new 300 occupancy music/entertainment venue in Astoria.
The Astoria Event Center will kick off this Saturday night with a Grand Opening. Adame Artists Presents' creator, Vince Adame, will be booking, promoting, and producing the various acts that he brings into the Astoria Event Center. "I am building a music highway from Portland to Astoria. The facility and I are intent on showcasing Portland talent to the music lovers and concert-goers in Astoria and the surrounding coastal area," says Adame. "The city is going to be exposed to the best rock, blues, funk, Americana and country that Portland has to offer."

He will also bring in regional and national touring artists traveling between Seattle and Portland. "The only other place for larger acts is the Liberty Theatre, but what we offer at Astoria Event Center is a more intimate experience. The seating is club-style, the bar, with seating on three sides, is at the midpoint of the venue, plus there is theatre seating in the back. This is a truly unique music scenario," Adame added. "And the gear! We've got brand new JBL arrays flying over the stage for front of house, stage monitors and PAR 46 lighting all overhead on trusses for the musicians, and Mackie mixing boards." A nice feature that has been preserved from its days as the Astoria Eagles Aerie is the original hardwood dance floor, running the entire length of the concert area. "Astoria is very excited about this and I hope my fellow musicians in Portland will be too. We're creating a unique opportunity for Portland's top artists to perform in Astoria for a ready audience in a first class venue, a historic downtown state-of-the-art music hall."

Vince reports a website is in the works for the venue, but bands may reach him through his website he uses as a professional drummer.
