The Opportunity

If walls could talk, the old walls of The Stanhope House would have some unbelievable stories to tell. Built in the 1790's, we take great pride in keeping the building as original as possible. From the wood floors to the original tin ceiling, and everything in between, the building is a time capsule of musical history. 

The club was the stomping grounds and post-show hangout of a massive array of beloved blues legends. This is a great opportunity for emerging acts to open up for regional and nationally touring acts. We're specifically looking for acts based out of New Jersey.
