The Belfry is the brainchild of Angeline Rhett, who transformed a 1914 church into a beautiful concert and event venue. Its stained glass windows, high ceilings, wooden accents and Chinese lanterns lend it an elegant look. Its excellent acoustics make it a premier space for live music. Some of their previous listings are Mary Alouette and The Bailsmen, Steep Canyon Rangers, Peter Rowan, Head For The Hills and Moon Mountain Ramblers.
Opened in June 2011, The Sound Garden Studio is a dream come true for aspiring musicians and bands who can record their samples in the well-equipped studios. Not just that, the 150-seater concert hall is a sure winner with its super acoustics and plush environs. The city of Bend can rejoice at the arrival of the Sound Garden Studio which looks promising.
A neoclassical Beaux Arts style building, this two-story brick structure has a high basement and high windows continuing around the building. The main entrance features three round head archways with high brick columns on a cut-stone foundation. The main wall of the building behind the portico is embellished with sculptured cut stone and Doric-style stone caps. This unusual architecture and history has earned Old Bend High School a place in the National Register of Historic Places. The building opened its gates in 1925 as a public high school until 1956 when it was re-christened as a junior high school. Currently, the building is the administrative headquarters for the Bend La-Pine School District.
Les Schwab Amphitheater is unique. Built in the Old Mill District in 2001, this venue has a riverfront view and can seat around 9000 people. Pretty impressive isn't it? Wait till you hear the list of performers that have rocked this joint. Bob Dylan, Coldplay, Jack Johnson, Willie Nelson, Doobie Brothers, the list just goes on and on and on. So, bring along your picnic basket, as this place doubles up as a meeting ground. And if you are not a skinflint, then call and demand to know when the next concert is? You never know, you could just catch the Beach Boys in motion.
