The Bamboo Room Will Go Dark, For Now...

The Club is closing as of May 31st. "There's an adage that the bar business 
is recession-proof, but Bamboo Room is a live music venue and is not immune. 
Rising fuel costs make it difficult for national touring acts to include 
South Florida in their routing.  Coupled with lower concert attendance 
during the summer, the truth is simple --particularly when heard directly 
from those sources. They've thoughtfully reviewed recent economic issues 
that weigh on performers and patrons. To compensate for the downturn, Bamboo 
Room adopted an abbreviated schedule for the first time in its history. Yet 
it soon became clear that it would be difficult to remain open through the 
summer. As a result they will close the doors May 31. A healthier economy 
will be key to operating during the winter, as was common in Florida not 
long ago. The trust and honesty of their relationships with artists, patrons 
and the media will remain firm.as has been their commitment to excellence in 
live music. The dedicated, excellent and valued staff will be kept apprised 
of future plans. The owners remain optimistic that the cultural and economic 
climate will improve. The soul of Bamboo Room will continue to resonate with 
the sound of Roots, Blues and Americana" Sincerely, Russell Hibbard
