Award-winning radio personality Blair Garner is sharing details about his entertainment venue, The Mulehouse, ahead of its scheduled spring opening. As previously announced, the 55,000 sq. ft. multi-use entertainment and special events venue is housed in a former church in Columbia, Tenn.
Garner will act as CEO, with other team members including Eric Garner, Chief Operating Officer; Michael Oppenheimer, General Manager; Jon Shyer, Dir. of Concerts & Marketing; Geoffrey Borchgrevink, Production Manager; and Tracy McGlocklin, Private Event Sales Manager.
Additionally, Garner is outsourcing services from several other companies:
Neste Live!, a Live Nation company, has partnered with The Mulehouse as the venue’s exclusive talent buyer, creating opportunities to book top artists and talent from across the globe. Fans will purchase tickets to upcoming shows and events through See Tickets.
Nugs.net will be the official livestreaming partner, giving artists the ability to reach fans on a global level through the use of the venue’s advanced livestreaming technology.
Clair Global will handle live production services and integrated permanent technology solutions. Clair has designed a top-of-the-line streaming, audio and lighting system as part of the venue’s buildout.
615 Leverage + Strategy will oversee The Mulehouse marketing efforts, strategic partnerships and branding. Hulcher PR will handle all public relations efforts on behalf of both The Mulehouse and Blair Garner.
Nashville-based MJM Architects is the architecture firm of record and Steelhead Building Group is the general contractor.
“In the past two years of planning and development of The Mulehouse, we’ve focused on creating a first-of-its-kind experience. Whether it be an artist or one of their fans—we want to effectively transport them to a different world through what they see and what they hear,” said Blair Garner. “We’ve spent countless hours trying to walk in the shoes of everyone who will interface with the property. We’ve tried to anticipate their every need, while also answering needs that they didn’t even know they had. We’ve created a rich and unique experience for our livestream guests. Sure, it’s a lofty goal. But it’s a goal easily within our reach thanks to the incredible power players in our corner. They are our Mulehouse dream team!”
Phase 2 of the project is slated to include an upscale restaurant, bar and intimate performance space, which are slated to open in 2022. An additional 30,000 sq. ft. beyond the current buildout will house a 35-key boutique hotel to be completed in 2022.
