COVID-19 has had a negative impact on small concert halls across the country. To provide some support, Live Music Society has just distributed 20 grants ranging from $ 10,000 to $ 50,000 per venue.

Bop stopping was the only Ohio venue selected to receive one of the grants to nonprofit and for-profit venues open for at least three years and dedicated primarily to live music (as opposed to restaurants or bars that feature live music mainly as a complement to the catering service).

“Music is magic,” Live Music Society founder and chairman of the board of directors Pete Muller said in a statement. “He has tremendous power to connect people and create energy. There are small venues across the country that create rewarding experiences for their audiences, staff, and the local and touring musicians who play there. These clubs are a valuable and important part of our country’s music ecosystem, and our goal is to help them continue to be great at what they do.

The grant program will continue for a period of two years.

The Bop Stop is currently open and broadcasts live concerts and allows limited in-person participation.
