Singers and brothers Gavin DeGraw and Joey DeGraw are adding a new venue and restaurant to the mix on Lower Broadway. The National Underground Nashville will have a grand opening on Sat., Oct. 15 with performances by Joey DeGraw, Hilary Williams, The Cold Stares, and the Eric Jon Band.
Sister Neeka DeGraw handles booking for the club, which is available for showcases and private events, and is said to offer a top-of-the-line sound system. All three siblings live in Nashville now.
The National Underground Nashville is located at 105 Broadway near Big River Grille and across from the Hard Rock Café.
“We feature live music seven nights a week and are trying to stick to an indie, Tom Petty style rock and roll, while having a soft spot for traditional country,” reports Gavin, who plans to attract risings acts as well as established artists.
Says Joey, “The idea for The National Underground was birthed on the road. I always dreamed of a live music touring circuit that catered to more of the indie market where the draw would be less than 200 people. We’re excited to be here in Nashville opening our second location, not only because we live here now, but also because it’s the ideal environment for this kind of venue.”
Fans of all ages are welcome until 9 p.m. at the non-smoking venue.
