Live Music Thursdays
Every Thursday night, businesses that provide live music on Thursday afternoons and evenings can participate in Live Music Thursdays, a downtown-wide promotion of live music in private venues. The goal is to project an image that Downtown Royal Oak is the center of live music in the region. It also creates an atmosphere of energy, fun, and artistic expression in Royal Oak, which reinforces its reputation as an entertainment destination.
The DDA is committing resources to help businesses providing live music work together under a single overarching promotion in the downtown.
This has the potential to develop into a successful effort to promote Royal Oak as a destination on Thursday afternoons and evenings, attracting families and office workers.
This program coordinates downtown businesses who are already providing live music to join in on a downtown-wide promotion. This requires the businesses to book live music on their own and the DDA would provide administrative support in terms of creating a central hub of information to the public and to promote it on its website and on social media.
To get involved, email the Downtown Manager with information about your live music events at your business.
