“The Addition” Launches in SF’s Fillmore District
(SAN FRANCISCO, CA)—Fillmore Live Entertainment Group LLC (“FLEG”) is proud to announce The Addition; the music venue nestled between Lower Fillmore and the Western Addition—from which it draws its name. The name change will officially take place on November 1, 2014; followed by the brand opening on November 21 with a special performance by Roy Ayers.
The Addition will present a diverse collection of musical genres. The music programming, handled by industry veteran, Peter Williams, will reflect an expansive approach to the music calendar. World music, singer-songwriters, classic and Indie rock, R&B and jazz will all be part of what you can find at The Addition. A glance at the musical offerings over the next few months offers an indication of the variety: Singer-songwriter, Jon McLaughlin; jazz singer, Cécile McLorin Salvant, Brian McKnight, and Richie Kotzen, guitarist from 80’s glam rock band, Poison.
Some of the other great shows on the calendar are: R&B powerhouse Mint Condition, Grammy-award winner, Dee Dee Bridgewater; the Christian McBride Trio, Dan Hicks, and a New Year’s Eve concert with R&B crooner, Eric Benét.
The Addition will now offer reserved seating, an all-new club menu and inspired cocktail offerings. The music, food and cocktails will be indicative of the global musical influence of the new lineup.
FLEG is lead by, Managing Partner, Michael E. Johnson; a real estate developer and owner of San Francisco-based, UrbanCore Development LLC. Urban Core originally developed the Fillmore Heritage Center mixed-use facility, which houses the venue, in 2007. The ownership of the The Addition also has made a commitment to the community, both locally and city wide; and is in the process of forming a non-profit affiliate to promote emerging musical artists, as well as engage the community in various outreach efforts.
In 2015, FLEG will unveil a new restaurant concept to complement The Addition. The inception of The Addition gives the first look at what will soon become a completely re-envisioned space. Music lovers and restaurant-goers alike can now celebrate the next great Addition to San Francisco’s entertainment landscape.
