The Altamont Theatre is booked for the rest of 2017 and is closing up shop at the end of this year to be turned into short term condos.  However, our Talent Buyer, Sam Katz, is moving over to Ambrose West, a gorgeous, brand new venue on Haywood Street in West Asheville that will be opening in February of 2018.  Ambrose West will pick up where the Altamont Theatre is leaving off and will be the only true Listening Room in Asheville.  Sam will be booking a wide variety of artists, bands and genres, with a concentration on seated, Listening Room type shows.  We will also do standing shows as well, when appropriate.

To be considered for a booking at Ambrose West, please include this info:

– have you ever played a show in Asheville?
– ticketed or free show?
– detailed box office history for your recent ticketed shows in Asheville
– a recent live video link (no attachments)
– a place to easily stream your music (no attachments)
– links to your website and all social media pages

Inquiries that don’t include this info, or some kind of realistic estimate of your current draw, go to the back of the line and may not be answered at all.

While many of our shows are seated, we are truly a customizable space and have a variety of seating and stage options.  We also rent the venue out, please contact to discuss options and pricing.

If you’re interested in playing at Ambrose West contact Sam via email, NO PHONE CALLS PLEASE:
