SANCTUARY was a very versatile space that could be used not only for live
music and dancing in a club setting...it could also be used for meetings
and seminars, banquets, weddings... and receptions, recitals, etc. Outside
was a large enclosed patio area with lights and misters for warm summer
your mouse over the doors, windows...and the Tower!
was a full bar with booths around the perimeter of the space and
the floor was open to accomodate different configurations. There
was one dressing room area.
Catering was also available.
also did in-house booking.
to give you an idea of the specs...here they are, as they were:
Room and Light Information:
stage with an arched front measuring 22 1/2 feet wide and 16 1/2 feet
deep at center. An additional 8' x 8' riser added for those bands with
larger set-ups (i.e. horns, large keyboard rigs, etc.).
The stage height: 32". The house mix position: approximately 30'
from the stage on an elvated (30") riser. All wood ceiling with a
tile floor making room very live for sound checks, settling down considerably
during shows when people filled the room. Not much EQ change at all, just
the reflections in the room due to the height of the hanging speaker system

and the intimate size of the room, which meant that there was no bad
spot to see.
