For everything that Seattle is known for, often the first thing that people think of, after rain of course, is the long standing history we have as a haven for live music. From Jimi Hendrix to Heart to Pearl Jam, Seattle has been a hotbed for up and coming artists for decades and the city still boasts a wide range of venues for all tastes. From Punk to Pop and every other genre, you are sure to find something to suite your tastes.
Benroyal Hall: Located in the heart of Downtown, Benroyal hall is home to the Seattle Symphony. Not only does the venue host works of the classics, they also strive to offer a wide range of contemporary performances such as the works of David Bowie as well a music from the video game series Final Fantasy. www.seattlesymphony.org/benaroyahall
The Re-bar. Since 1990, this strange little red building has been home to some of the oddest shows in the city. Often remembered as the club that kicked out Nirvana during their record release party, the Re-bar was also featured in the Cameron Crowe film “Singles’. This place rarely disappoints. 1114 Howell St.
The Rendezvous: Often overlooked in favor of the larger venues, this spot is small but loaded with both history and character. Built in 1927, this is one of the oldest theaters in Seattle and was also a speakeasy during the dark days of prohibition. The club has taken a new life since 2002 when the current owners restored it to the original luster. A great place to see indie bands as well as being a hotspot for the burlesque scene. 2322 2nd Ave in Belltown.
The Tractor Tavern: If you’re a fan of Bluegrass and other roots music, this is one of the best bets for live music. Located in the Ballard neighborhood, the Tractor is host to both local and national acts and the crowd does get loud and rowdy from time to time. 5213 Ballard Ave NW
The Neptune Theater: Another part of Seattle’s history, this venue located near the University of Washington, first opened it’s doors in 1921. In 2011 the theater was taken over by the Seattle Theater Group who spent months both restoring and updating the space. Be sure to check out the balcony which is reported to be haunted.www.stgpresents.org/neptune
The Paramount: One of the larger venues on this list, the Paramount is home to not only great live National acts but acclaimed Broadway performances and comedy as well. If you want to get a look at things behind the scenes, they offer free tours of the building on the first Saturday of every month. www.stgpresents.org/paramount
Please keep in mind that this is just a small taste of what the city has to offer. You can often hear amazing music just walking down the street or in Pikes Place Market. No matter what style you’re into, you’ll have no problem finding your groove here.

"One of their team members stopped by my house on Lake Sammamish just two days before my property was to be sold at auction. I told them that I was under water and couldn’t sell. He insisted that I speak with Ky DeWald and Adam Mickelson to see if there was anything that could be done. I finally agreed. They were able to not only stop my auction and get me another 90 days in my house but also put over $125,000.00 in my pocket and sold my house for $1,550,000.00!!! I couldn’t be happier!!! Thanks guys for all the help!"
