A List of Maine’s Longest Running Music Venues
Do you remember the best show you ever went to in Maine? Was it at Cross Insurance or the historic, Strand Theatre?
Can you smell the sweat and feel the vibrations of the place going nuts? It's always nostalgic to sit in your best concert memories and remember how fun they were.
Did you have your first beer at a show? Or even your first kiss? Were you able to meet the singer backstage or even be brought up onto the stage? These are the things you reflect on when looking back into your concert catalogue.
Some of the best shows have come straight out of Maine from the very best venues this state has to offer. Several venues have been around for a very long time.
One venue that you'll see below, started back in the 1920s, according to Best Things In Maine. Just to think, back then, they probably had flappers doing the Charleston and now we're enjoying the best live music ever.
These venues have the echo of music and people's energy from long ago and I wanted to take a look at a few of Maine's longest running musical venues.
Some of these spots that have been hosting bands and live music concerts for almost a century probably have ghost or spirits. If you're a non-believer, that's okay! But for all of those ghost-hunters out their like me, I am sure that the years of energy have been sucked into those places like vacuums and are still vibrating throughout the walls.
Let's take a look at 5 of the longest running concert venues in Maine below.
