For more than 20 years, Brendan Kuhlkin, owner and operator of McHales on Main has been promoting and featuring music on Main St. in Rock Hill, SC. In additional to many local artist, McHales’ audiences have seen quite a few up and coming names like: Sun Dried Vibes; Truckstop Preachers; and TreeHouse.
Kuhlkin signed with 768 Productions to seek out and add more regional bands for Saturday appearances.
“This is a great spot for many of our local bands and we will always feature local talent,” says Kuhlkin. “We also see an opportunity with the growth in Rock Hill and especially here in Old Town to make this a top stop for regional acts coming through Charlotte.”
Kuhlkin is right and the timing is perfect. In additional to 139 Main condominiums that opened in 2016, another set of 108 apartments called The Anderson on Main Street are set to open just a few doors down in the spring of 2018. Old Town Rock Hill is bursting at into a vibrant destination for food, drink and lots of music.
McHales itself features an iconic set-up made for putting bands close to audiences. The stage is just inside the doors and is backed by a huge store-front window on Main St.
768 will be booking bands starting at the end of December and through 2018. See the venue contact page on our website.
“Our goal is to add to the Charlotte area music scene and provide another outlet for emerging bands in the Carolinas and beyond,” says owner manager Michelle Stringer. “Working with venues like McHales is a win-win to help us continue building sustainable businesses out of music acts.”
