According to Patrick Walsh, the new venue’s program and marketing director, the aim of the Ground is to be as versatile as possible in its bookings.
“We want this venue to be home for all music lovers and to provide a space for all genres of music,” Walsh says. “We won’t have a particular sound but will bring the best of everything, from hip-hop to metal, from electronic to folk, and everything in between.”
Walsh, a longtime fixture on Miami’s music scene who played the very first show at Grand Central, says the Ground has an important role in the ongoing rehabilitation and redefinition of Space.
“The Ground will be one facet of a Club Space family that will also include the Terrace, Loft, and Floyd — each different rooms in the building. Each will have a different identity and function but will be part of a Club Space whole,” Walsh says. “I think the meaning of Club Space will also evolve… It already has.”
Sinopoli adds there is the possibility of “a little microfestival in there, where you have three or four rooms that are going off with four different genres of music.” Planned for the end of this year are evenings when the Ground will have “four different parties happening” the same night.
- The Ground is the first floor of Club Space, remodeled into a new venue.
- This venue will feature all kinds of genres but all will be live.
- The building also houses other venues including the Terrace, Loft and Floyd.
