QC Productions and Emerald Lounge are excited to announce they are teaming up to unveil a COMPLETELY NEW EMERALD LOUNGE in 2014!! QC Productions is permanently partnering with Emerald Lounge and has an incredible list of exciting new changes for the historic downtown music venue for the New Year!
Adam McMillan, Founder & Marketing Director of Asheville-based QC Productions, will be leading the efforts. McMillan was also the Festival Director of the one-of-a-kind, record-breaking Carolina Cultural Exchange (CCX) Music Festival that took place this past September, selling out both LAB and Emerald Lounge and helping to provide a great outlet to unite great musicians and music lovers from both NC and SC.
“We are working closely with the Asheville community to offer top-notch entertainment, events, showcases and fundraising benefits that will make us the go-to ‘hang out spot’ and live music venue of Asheville. Emerald Lounge has always been a favorite live music venue of mine for the Southeast, in general. It’s arguably the best sounding stage and room in WNC. The venue, as a whole however, has also held exponentially more potential than has ever been reached in the past. QC Productions is excited to spearhead its innovative evolution!”
