Music Scene in
The largest city in North Carolina, and the 22nd largest metro area in the United States, Charlotte was the fastest growing area in the nation between 2004-2014. Home to the 7th busiest airport in the world, several college and universities, and one of the largest financial hubs in the country, it’s easy to see why Charlotte is such a popular place.
We like to think the vibrant music scene has something to do with that, too. Charlotte features a large variety of venues showcasing an even greater variety of local and touring acts. Rock, country, blues, folk, punk, and other genres can be heard on the streets of Charlotte.
The Spectrum Center plays host to the largest bands in the world (as well as the NBA Hornets). The Spectrum welcomed megabands Bon Jovi and The Eagles as well as indie faves Lana Del Rey and Florence and the Machine in the last year.
The PNC Music Pavilion is an outdoor venue seating over 19,000 while the Charlotte Amphitheater and the Fillmore anchor the AvidxChange Music Factory, an entertainment hub in downtown Charlotte. Coyote Joes is the place for country, The Milestone is known for rock, and The Evening Muse is an ideal spot for an intimate evening with up-and-coming bands.
Not only does Charlotte showcase a variety of acts, but many notable musicians also have ties to the city. Hard rocking band Firehouse and contemporary R&B star Jodeci both hail from Charlotte, along with countless smaller acts. The city is also home to several behind the scenes locations as well.
A number of Charlotte recording studios accommodate the ongoing needs of the music market. Charlotte audio engineers and producers have worked with stars large and small, helping create the music you see on stage or during pregame warm-ups at a Carolina Panthers football game.
And that’s who you could be working with if you decide to become a student at the Recording Connection in Charlotte.
