The Elephant Room Music Room has opened its doors to the public on the West Coast of the United States.
The venue, which will be the first in the world to have a private music room as part of its annual Elephant Show, was launched at the South By Southwest Music Festival in Austin, Texas last weekend.
The venue’s owners, Tom and Ann Tipton, said they hope the room will give a new lease on life to their long-time neighbours in Melbourne, who are not known for hosting live music.
The Tiptons’ decision to open their Elephant Room in Melbourne has also been met with praise.
“We’re very excited about opening this amazing music venue to the general public in Melbourne,” Mr Tiptont said.
“It’s a great honour to welcome the first venue in Australia to the world of entertainment and live music, so many people have said they can’t wait to come to the event.”
I hope the experience will be memorable for all.
“The Elephant Room’s music is performed by the Tiptones’ five children.
The room was built in a converted house and boasts a bar area and a large, glass stage for the performances.
It’s not the first time the Tippons have hosted live music at the venue.
They hosted an annual festival in 2017 and 2017 was the first year they ever put on a live event.
The event drew thousands to the venue, and in 2018, they hosted a special event for their children to raise money for the Royal Children’s Hospital.”
The only difference is that we are now taking it to a larger stage and opening it up to the whole world.””
It was a really nice thing to do and we are very proud of that.”
“The only difference is that we are now taking it to a larger stage and opening it up to the whole world.”
The event will be available to view on mobile, and the Tippers plan to expand their live event programming with a more ambitious goal of hosting 20 shows per year, and possibly a full concert rotation in the future.
The Elephant Show is one of the largest entertainment festivals in the United Kingdom, with more than 150,000 people attending over the weekend.
“Music has always been our passion, and with a room like the Elephant Room, we can’t help but be inspired by all of the great things that come from the arts,” Mr Thys said.
