The music scene in #DTJax has always been an integral part of the full Jacksonville experience. The Elbow, the Entertainment District of #DTJax, hosts many music and performance venues in its area.

From major headliners to locally known artists, the different music venues allow us to have many options when we are making plans for a big night out.

 

1904 Music Hall

19 Ocean St.

Founded in 2011, 1904 Music Hall has been an iconic part of #DTJax for the past several years. The original building that they are housed in was built in 1904, hence the namesake, and has since been renovated in order to create the current space that we know and love.

While they can host anything from private parties to punk rock shows, the 1904 Music Hall is only open when there are events planned, so be sure to check out their events calendar!

Times Union Center for the Performing Arts

300 Water St.

The Times Union Center for the Performing Arts is a large center consisting of three venues: a theatre, concert hall and recital hall. First opened in 1962, the first performance in the center was by the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra. By the 1990’s, the center was forced to undergo a renovation costing several million dollars to fix the notoriously poor acoustics in the building.

Currently, the center hosts programing such as comedy shows, live theatre productions and concerts. Upcoming shows include The Legend of Zelda Symphony and the Sound of Music and much more, all listed on their event calendar.
