THE AWARD WINNING MUSIC VENUE THAT’S ROCKIN’ ROCKY MOUNT
The Harvester Performance Center is located at 450 Franklin Street, Rocky Mount Va 24151 Call 540-GUITARS in downtown Rocky Mount. Just a short walk from us!
The main room seats up to 460 people and in smaller configurations when deemed appropriate. The main room has a 40-foot wide stage with great sight lines and state-of-the-art audio, lighting and video systems. We hope that every show you attend will be the best you can see, hear and experience in a mid-sized venue (comfortable chairs too). Downstairs is “The Landing Pad” stage which is an intimate concert setting.
The Claiborne House Innkeepers have attended some knock-your-socks-off shows since The Harvester Performance Center opened in April 2014. From The Mavericks, Toad the Wet Sprocket, David Mayfield Parade, Firefall, Merle Haggard, Billy Bob Thornton, Restless Heart, Milk Carton Kids, The Bacon Brothers, Dave Mason, Arlo Guthrie, Jerry Douglas, Yarn, Leon Russel, Asleep at the Wheel, Oak Ridge Boys, Elizabeth Cook, The Oh Hellos, The Carolina Chocolate Drops and more.
The artists are singing her praises, the quality of the sound and the small intimate feel of the venue itself has placed it on the top of their lists to play, and many have come back already. Ty Herndon said there is nothing like this in Nashville, and The Mavericks said they have been playing venues for 30 years and have never had such fantastic sound as The Harvester, Merle Haggard said he has more people in his living room when he plays at home. Buy your tickets here. if you need a date night recommendation call Rex at the Box Office, the resident musicologist extraordinaire 540-GUITARS.
