Welcome to Red Sky Stage!

News Flash!  Red Sky Stage gets a new home

UPDATE --  June 12

I have now listed events on the events page for the last two weeks of June.  These events will go forward assuming I get county occupancy approval expected next week.


I am as anxious as any of you to get some concerts and other events scheduled.  The county says that because I am changing the use of the space from retail to entertainment, they have to do a safety review and issue a permit.  That process should take a week or so.  Safety first of course.  Then I will be able to announce a new, fun-packed schedule.  Stay tuned.]


I am delighted to announce that as of  May 31, 2019, after several days of negotiations, I have signed a three year lease for a new location at 801 Front Street, Suite C/D. Bay Harbor.  We are at the south end of the row of stores and restaurants.  Our new home  faces the harbor and the dramatic Lake Michigan sunsets that are the inspiration for our name. 

The Bay Harbor folks have welcomed us with open arms and I am thrilled to be a part of the Bay Harbor community.  

I got the keys on Saturday, June 1, and will move in over the next week or so.  Of course, you are welcome to stop by, check out the new digs and say hello.  I will be restarting (and expanding) our schedule of performances and events over the next few weeks.  It should begin to emerge almost immediately on the events page of this website  and in other media.

Thanks also to all of you who have stopped by with kind words and encouragement over the last few weeks and to those who have generously contributed to our very successful gofundme campaign to raise funds to help find and create a new home for Red Sky Stage.  Thanks to you, we have together  raised over two times our initial goal.  The campaign remains open.

Now, on to the future!
