Music lovers in Montgomery County, this article is for you! The Keystone Lounge, a new music venue in Cedars is now open for business! The proprietors, Julia and Chris Clarke, have over 30 years of combined experience in the event planning, hospitality and entertainment industries. The local duo now plan on using their talents to bring our community together under one roof to enjoy great food, drinks, and of course, incredible homegrown music!!!
Since booking his first band in 1995, Chris Clarke has become addicted to the feeling he gets from seeing the collection of smiles in the audience during a performance that he has helped put together. Now, Chris has the ability to keep our residents smiling by offering them the opportunity to perform, and grow in a supportive atmosphere. Chris’s drive and vision for a new sound stage in our area will now help benefit all of Montgomery County music lovers by providing them a great venue to express their talents.
Most recently, the couple organized the fifth installment of Stir Fry Music Festival (2013), before taking some time off to start a family. Within its five year history, Stir Fry hosted such acts as: Bernie Worrell Orchestra, Steve Kimock Band, Keller Williams, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, Zach Deputy, Break Science, Particle, Kung Fu, Papadosio and Turkuaz just to name a few. In the tradition of Stir Fry, owners Julia & Chris Clarke plan on showcasing musical acts from a wide array of genres at their new venue. Guests can expect a one-of-a-kind, intimate experience at every show since the building’s capacity is just short of 200 people (188 to be precise).
The Keystone Lounge is located at 3509 Skippack Pike, Cedars, PA 19423. They are open at 11am for lunch every day and the kitchen is open until 1am on the weekends.
