Baltimore Soundstage, located in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, is one of the most eclectic venues in Maryland hosting nationally touring artists from genres such as heavy metal, neo-soul, dubstep, spoken word, and everything in-between in an intimate environment. Most shows will be presented in the standard standing room only room configuration, however, in a first for Baltimore, we present selected acts in a fully seated table format. Soundstage is equipped with a large stage, state of the art sound, lights, and video, and a kitchen, offering patrons a full menu of choices.

Q: Is seating available for a show?
A: Soundstage has a variety of seating arrangements depending on the particular show. Please check the show calendar or ticket link for the arrangement for the show you are interested in. All table seating is subject to a 20% Gratuity. Listed below are the available variations:
Standing Room Only: Just like it sounds – customers should be prepared to stand for the length of the show. There may be a limited number of bar stools, tables and chairs, and individual chairs available, but this would be on a first come first serve basis. Some standing room only shows may have VIP and show packages available.
Fully Seated Event: This configuration guarantees you a seat, either theatre style or table seating. All general admission seating is available on a first come first serve basis. Depending on the show, you may be able to purchase either a show package and reserve a table of your choice, or an individual seat at a specific table. We cannot seat incomplete parties.
Show Package: Show packages come in 2 or 4 person tickets. This package guarantees you a table with food credit. For general admission shows where seating is available, the raised section to the right side of the room will have these tables and customers will be seated based upon the date and time of purchase; the earlier you purchase this package, the better your seat. These seats are reserved in advance of the doors opening, therefore allowing customers to arrive anytime after doors open.
VIP Package: On a limited number of shows, including standing room only events, this package will be available. A VIP package allows the entry of up to 10 guests, a selection of premium liquor, reserved seating area, and a dedicated server. When available, these packages can only be obtained by contacting [email protected] Our VIP package host will then contact you to assist in selecting an appropriate package.
Q: Is there parking available near Soundstage?
A: Yes. Two nearby parking facilities have agreed to provide discounted parking for Soundstage patrons. Make sure you ask a Soundstage staff member for your discount parking ticket chaser. In order to apply the discount, you must obtain a parking ticket from the garage. On the way back to your vehicle, insert your parking ticket into the payment slot followed by the chaser and there will be an automatic discount.
Lockwood Garage is located on top of the venue with the entrance being just steps away from the Soundstage entrance. Our Soundstage discount chaser provides you with a $10 discount, making your final payment $12-$17 depending on what time you enter the garage. This discount can only be applied if you enter after 4pm.
Pier V Parking Garage is located less than two blocks away at 711 E. Pratt Street and parking after 5pm is only $7 with your Soundstage discount chaser.
Q: Do you serve food?
A: Yes, the food section on this website has an example of the types of food you can expect to see, but our menu changes daily. Just ask your server or bartender about any food and beverage specials.
Q: How do I play at your venue?
A: You must have a website or Facebook page with three songs that can be viewed and listened to in its entirety (YouTube is okay to meet this requirement). Soundstage limits the amount of local artists placed on a bill, so you should be expected to fulfill some minimum obligations to be placed on this bill.
Q: Where is the box office located and what time does it open?
A: The box office is located at the venue – 124 Market Place, Baltimore MD 21202. The box office opens at least one hour before any show or event and stays open for the duration of the show. Additionally, the Box office is open Wednesdays -Saturday from 12PM-6PM. The phone number is (410) 244-0057
Q: What do i need to pick up will call tickets?
A: Your ID or credit card used to purchase the tickets, and order confirmation number.
Q: Can i still get tickets if a show is sold out?
A: Once a show is sold out, that’s it. We do not resell tickets for customers who don’t show nor do we have a waiting list. Sometimes an artist or tour will release a number of tickets just prior to the show so you should continue to periodically monitor our website to check on the status of the show. Also, there may be some tickets released the day of the show. There is no guarantee that this will occur. You can stop by in person once the doors are open. You cannot call to have tickets held. Again, there is no guarantee that tickets will be available.
Q: What is the age requirement for entering the venue?
A: All shows are all ages unless otherwise indicated in the show details. If a show is designated as 16 and older or 18 and older, you must be that age or older to enter. You must have proper ID to enter all age restricted shows.
Q: What time does the show start?
A: Door and show times are indicated on each individual show listing. The run of each show can vary, but you can call the venue during box office hours for set times or check our Facebook and Twitter pages on the day of the show for posted set times. All acts and times are subject to change without notice.
It is important to note that shows at Soundstage sometimes have limited opening artists other than what the entire tour is carrying. In most cases, shows start on time and end at a reasonable hour. The exact timing of all the shows is largely dependent upon the artist or tour. The venue does not have control over any particular artist, band, or tour’s performance time.
Q: Do you have a dress code?
A: The venue does not have a specific dress code other than no dangerous jewelry, no spike clothing, no knives of any kind, and obviously, no weapons. The venue reserves the right to search customers upon entry for any illegal or inappropriate material. If found or customer refuses to undergo the search, then the venue reserves the option to deny entry without a ticket refund.
Q: Do you have coat check?
A: If the weather and room arrangement justifies it, we open a coat check.
Q: Can I bring a camera in?
A: The venue defers to the act regarding the specific photo/taping policy. Most of the time, the policy is as follows: No video, no professional cameras, no taping, and no use of flash, but each artist(s) have their own rules and can change them as they see fit. In the event that you can’t bring a camera inside, make sure you are comfortable leaving it in your car.
Q: How do I talk to someone about my bill or credit card charge?
A: You can send an email to [email protected] or call us during box office hours at 410-244-0057.
Q: Can I buy tickets at your box office without paying service fees?
A: You can buy tickets at the box office or over the phone with a substantially lower fee than purchasing online, however the state of Maryland requires an admissions and amusement tax of 10% on all tickets.
Q: I bought tickets and now I can’t go.
A: All sales are final, no refunds or exchanges. Refunds are only made available for rescheduled or canceled shows.
Q: My child wants to come to soundstage, but I am concerned.
A: The decision to let your child come to a show is obviously up to you as a parent. Alcohol is served at the venue, but we are very cautious and diligent to ensure that only those individuals age appropriate are served. Attending the show with your child is an option, this way you can make your own evaluation of the situation.
Q: Can I leave and re-enter?
A: Once you redeem your ticket, we cannot allow you to exit and re-enter, though we do allow smoking in a designated area directly outside of the venue. You cannot, however, take alcohol outside. The smoking area may have limited accessibility and availability times.
Q: Is the venue handicap accessible?
A: Our main entrance and general admission floor area are accessible. Once inside, there are two raised areas that have two steps each to go up in order to access them.

The Modell Performing Arts Center is a music venue in Baltimore, Maryland, United States, located close to the University of Baltimore. The building was modeled after the Concertgebouw concert hall in Amsterdam, and it was inaugurated on 31 October 1894 with a performance by the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Australian opera singer Nellie Melba as the featured soloist. Beginning 1904, it was also used for touring performances by the Metropolitan Opera, and from 1950, it was the home of the Baltimore Opera Company until the company's liquidation in 2009.The Lyric has been the home of the Lyric Opera Baltimore company since 2011. It was founded after the demise of Baltimore Lyric Opera.HistoryOpera and music at the LyricPrior to the 1909 purchase of the building on behalf of the Metropolitan Opera by Otto Kahn, Oscar Hammerstein I presented an opera season and began to make plans to remodel it by enlarging the stage area. However Kahn's purchase caused the venue's name to be changed to the Lyric Theatre. and firmed up the continuity of the Metropolitan Opera's annual visits. In the early 20th century, the Lyric Opera featured opera tenor Enrico Caruso who appeared there with the Metropolitan Opera in a performance of Flotow's Martha.
The Hippodrome Theatre is a theater in Baltimore, Maryland. Built in 1914 for impresarios Marion Scott Pearce and Scheck, the 2300-seat theater was the foremost vaudeville house in Baltimore, as well as a movie theater. When the movie palace opened it was the largest theatre south of Philadelphia. The Hippodrome was designed by Thomas W. Lamb, one of the foremost theater architects of his time. Lamb gave the theater an unusually strong presence on Eutaw Street through the use of brick and terra cotta on a massive façade. The Hippodrome was renovated in 2004 for use as a performing arts theater, and is part of the France-Merrick Performing Arts Center.The site had previously been occupied by the five story Eutaw House Hotel, built in 1835 and destroyed by fire on May 25, 1912. The new theater had an original capacity of 3,000 seats and boasted a Moller organ, as well as a house orchestra that survived into the 1950s. The Loew's chain operated the Hippodrome from 1917 to 1924, then Keith-Albee-Orpheum assumed stewardship. In 1920 the average weekly attendance was 30,000. During the 1930s the Hippodrome featured such performers as Jack Benny, Milton Berle, Bob Hope, Martha Raye, Dinah Shore, Red Skelton, The Three Stooges, the Andrews Sisters, Morey Amsterdam and Benny Goodman. Frank Sinatra first performed with Harry James at the Hippodrome. Live performances ceased in 1959, but movies remained strong through the 1960s. The Hippodrome finally closed in 1990 as the last movie theater in downtown Baltimore.
NEW ORLEANS NORTH JAZZ FESTIVAL
The inaugural edition of the New Orleans North Jazz Festival premieres at the GAME Concert hall venue on Saturday, January 16th at 6pm. Sharing the stage for the first time will be two New Orleans legends, the powerhouse jazz ensemble Bonerama, with six major releases under its belt, AND popular and national touring sensation, the Panorama Jazz Band of New Orleans. These two important and musically diverse groups are set to deliver a night of potent, authentic and dynamic New Orleans Jazz. Opening the evening will be The Peabody Gypsy Swing Band from the world-renowned Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore.
The authentic New Orleans sounds of the festival will be complemented by authentic New Orleans cuisine sold by select vendors. Among the traditional delicacies of the Crescent City, attendees can expect authentic gumbo, 'Nawlins Jambalaya, homemade red beans and rice, and more. Another southern food experience will feature oyster variations served by The Local Oyster. Rounding out the food lineup will be barbeque by Big Bad Wolf House of Barbeque. New Orleans beverages and favors will be available as well.
The full evening of New Orleans jazz will be held at the new Game Live Music venue, located in the newly remodeled South Baltimore warehouse area, immediately adjacent to Baltimore’s Horseshoe Casino and just south of M&T Bank Stadium. In the all-night-long tradition of their shared hometown, festivities will begin at 6pm and continue until Bonerama and Panorama call it quits.
Hailed as “unlike anything you’ve ever heard before” Bonerama has been a trendsetter in the classic New Orleans funk rock, brass band sound since its beginnings in 1998. Over the last 15 years Bonerama has expanded the boundaries of New Orleans Jazz—and its sphere of influence continues to grow. Their unique approach to the trombone has created a whole new impression of the instrument. Bonerama has performed the National Anthem at the Sugar Bowl, appeared on David Letterman and on HBO, and performed with countless national artists. Shake it Baby, the sixth and latest Bonerama album, has received worldwide acclaim. Bonerama features the dual lead vocals and trombones of Mark Mullins and Craig Klein, along with third trombonist (and backup vocalist) Greg Hicks, guitarist Bert Cotton, bassist/sousaphone player Matt Perrine, and drummer AJ Hall.
Opening this first annual New Orleans North Jazz Festival will be Panorama Jazz Band. Panorama traces its beginnings to 1995 as a trio that quickly grew to a septet. Over their first 20 years, Panorama has released five albums that infuse indigenous, traditional sounds of worldly music cultures with the spirit of their hometown of New Orleans.
"From Eastern Europe to New Orleans, the panoramic view of the soundscape is pungently condensed to a hip and worldly mix. Live and acoustic, the Panorama Jazz Band is a rare sonic pleasure in the street or at a club…. They always ‘Come Out Swinging’." —Nick Spitzer, Host of American Routes from PRI. While always anchored by founder/bandleader/clarinetist Ben Schenck, Panorama has featured a revolving cast of some of New Orleans' finest musicians. For this tour (which also includes stops in Philadelphia and Annapolis), Schenck will be joined by Tomas Majcherski (alto saxophone), Jon Ramm (trombone), Matt Schreiber (accordion), Patrick Mackey (tenor banjo), Steve Glenn (tuba) and Doug Garrison (drums).

Hammerjacks Concert Hall and Nightclub was a large concert hall in downtown Baltimore through the 1980s and into the 1990s. The club attracted many big-name national acts, but also showcased many rising stars in the music world. The bands ranged from punk, glam, and heavy metal acts most commonly associated with the venue (Guns n Roses, Kix, Ratt, Skid Row or Extreme) to pop music (Badfinger) and alternative rock groups (Goo Goo Dolls).
The club was often frequented by hard core patrons and musicians donning big hair, leather, lace, spandex, and heavy makeup, and was considered a "hard rock shrine." It was torn down on June 12, 1997 to make way for M&T Bank Stadium parking lot. Hammerjacks was billed as "The largest nightclub on the east coast."
