AJ from Brewhouse Gallery tells The Rickie Report, ” As some of you may already know we have acquired our entire building as new owners and are now tackling a brand-new endeavor.  We are not one to ask for help, but now we are calling in all our favors and support. We’ve been working around the clock for the last two months trying to get our new project re-open and create the best venue humanly possible. We will be turning a vintage movie theater and rock venue with a rich past (The Kelsey Club) into a new performing arts center! Please take just a few minutes to view the video below and consider contributing as much as you can in order to make this vision a reality. Also, please share this campaign on all your social media outlets, emails, at the office… Pretty much everywhere. Thanks so much and we look forward to seeing you on opening night”.
