At the Bluestone, we’re all about live music and an unforgettable concert experience. We scout out your favorite acts and work hard to bring you a great show. Featuring local and national artists, from country and electronic to R&B and hip hop, we pride ourselves on premier shows in a unique setting. This isn’t just another stage– it’s an experience. Check out our upcoming shows to see what’s next.

“Hands down the best venue for a concert. The prices are so affordable. Seating is great, (and) the staff is so helpful.” -Kris O., yelp.com

A Columbus music venue with character.

A mix of old and new, the Bluestone is a 115-year-old church transformed into an open hardwood floor, central stage and wrap-around balcony, so wherever you stand, you’re part of the show. Floor-to-ceiling stained glass windows, cathedral ceilings, and three levels of original art and concert posters complete the experience. If the history of the place doesn’t intrigue you, the century-old acoustics will.

And there’s not a bad seat in the house. While the Sanctuary gives you the front row experience with plenty of room to dance, our Loft puts you just above eye-level with the performer. The Bluestone is a large space, but the two levels combined offer a surprisingly intimate concert experience.

Eat, drink and be merry.

With seven bars inside and out, you’ll never be empty handed and, for some shows, you might even find us grilling on the Patio.

We’ve been told that artists make a point of stopping at the Bluestone after a fellow singer raves about the experience here. Maybe it’s our genuine staff, maybe it’s our one-of-a-kind venue or maybe it’s the awesome Columbus crowd that keeps our favorite artists coming back for more. We’d say it’s all three, but we’ll let you decide.

Whether you’re looking for your favorite country band or a killer DJ, check our schedule and stay tuned– we’re announcing new live music shows in Columbus all the time.

It’s Cody Johnson’s time.

After landing two releases in the Top 10 of Billboard’s country albums chart on his own CoJo label and selling 74,000 tickets for a single show, to earn recognition as the only unsigned artist in history to sell out NRG Stadium at RodeoHouston, one of Texas’ most-sought-after talents finally agreed to sign with a major label. Warner Music Nashville won a Music Row sweepstakes and enticed Johnson – who’d turned down several majors before – to join the team and take a shot at turning a concert success story into one with multimedia, national hit-making cred.

Johnson’s passionate, rowdy concerts have already drawn comparisons to Garth Brooks, and the music from his previous albums – inspired by ‘90s country foundations, but built for the 21st century – has made him a familiar presence on Texas and Oklahoma red-dirt radio.

Johnson’s introductory Warner project, Ain’t Nothin’ to It, ups the ante. After writing the bulk of his previous material, he put out word in Nashville that he was open to songs from other sources, and the results were astonishing. A-list writers – including Chris Stapleton, Radney Foster and Brothers Osborne guitarist John Osborne – came to the table with songs that suited Johnson’s life and disposition. Music fans who are just now coming to the table will get a quick understanding of Johnson, from the rowdy troublemaker in the swampy “Doubt Me Now” to the devoted family man in the title track to the self-penned ex-bull rider in “Dear Rodeo” to the devoted Christian in “His Name Is Jesus.”

Drake White at The Bluestone

 

To listen to Drake White’s music is to fully experience the soul and rhythm of his upbringing in the Appalachian foothills of Northeastern Alabama. The undeniable sound of his soulful voice has whipped concert audiences across the country into a frenzy as Drake and his band, The Big Fire, raise the roof and summon spirits to life onstage. It’s equal parts Baptist tent revival and amped-up southern rock festival. As you watch Drake crank the energy level up higher and higher throughout the night, you feel as if you’d walked in on a live gospel album backed up by all-stars from The Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Of course those acts hit musical pay dirt recording in Muscle Shoals, Alabama in the late ‘60s and ‘70s, a little over two hours west of Drake’s tiny hometown of Hokes Bluff.

The same fire that drives Drake to pour his entire being in to those performances also demands that he continue exploring and refining that country soul sound, which the world first heard on his debut album, 2016’s SPARK (Big Machine Label Group). In the spirit of propelling his music forward, Drake teamed up with a crew of Nashville’s most creative musicians in an effort to, as he says, “Bridge that gap between Nashville and Muscle Shoals.” It’s in the crossroads of those two musical worlds that you’ll find Drake White’s new five-song EP, PIECES (BMLG Records) . The new project is helmed by hit producer busbee, best known in country circles for his work with Maren Morris and Keith Urban.

“Maybe I’m addicted to pain…What used to be, what’s gone.
There’s definitely some darkness,
but it’s hard to explain, though everybody knows it.
“Probably I’m a hopeless romantic,
but sex can make that complicated, too.
“You know you want to be in love, but that’s a tricky thing to find.”

Tyler Farr’s a thinker, an observer of the human condition, a man in the middle of a surging testosterone country movement in today’s Nashville who insists on digging a little deeper, getting a little realer and owning how hard it can be. On Suffer In Peace, the son of a Garden City, Missouri farmer opens his veins and examines the pain that comes from being truly engaged with living.

From the wracked hangover of what you don’t see coming in love “Withdrawals,” the smoky acoustic “I Don’t Even Want This Beer” or the spare run-from-the-memories title track, the classically-trained vocalist knows that love isn’t just hard, it’s risky. With a resonant tenor that has a powdery bottom and a warm center, Farr heats up difficult emotions and peels back what most men barricade behind bravado.

One listen to “A Guy Walks Into A Bar,” Suffer’s lead single, is to hear the tension, the exhaustion and the devastation that comes with a stiff upper lip. It falters just a bit, buckles and throws unspeakable pain wide open without going for melodrama as he transforms the joke into a punchline that is the hero’s life.

Dylan Scott at The Bluestone in Columbus, Ohio

 

Country singer Dylan Scott is extending his tour for his 2016 self-titled debut album with a set of headlining U.S. dates in 2019. The newly announced Nothing to Do Town Tour begins Jan. 17 in New York City and ends Feb. 23 in Charlotte, North Carolina. Tickets go on sale on Sept. 21 at Scott’s official website. Seth Ennis is the opening act on the tour.

Scott, who released his Merry Christmas EP in 2017, has been using his extensive time on the road to build his following. He’s gone from headlining clubs to headlining theaters. The songs that are consistently part of his set list include “Hooked,” “Beer Buddies,” “Makin’ This Boy Go Crazy” and “My Girl.” “Hooked” and “My Girl” have both been Top 10 hits on Billboard’s Top Country Songs chart.

Jerrod Niemann

Jerrod Niemann Live at The Bluestone

After almost a decade as a major-label artist, prolific Nashville hitmaker Jerrod Niemann has put his heart on his sleeve like never before with the patriotic anthem, “Old Glory.” Describing the resolute ballad as “100 percent heart, zero percent politics,” the singer-songwriter wrote the track in honor of U.S. soldiers following the 2017 Tongo Tongo ambush in Niger. A veteran of multiple USO Tours, Niemann knew how much those heroes were willing to sacrifice in the name of duty – from missing their children’s first steps and soccer games to holidays, anniversaries and so much more. He performed “Old Glory” live for the first time during that year’s USO Holiday Tour, and is now bringing it to the American public. Also in 2017, Niemann dug deep into his journey for critically-acclaimed album THIS RIDE – his first for Curb Records which includes the feel-good jam, “I Got This,” the uplifting duet “A Little More Love” (with Lee Brice) and the classy romance of “God Made a Woman.” Known for clever wordplay and attention-grabbing lyrics, the engaging singer-songwriter topped Country charts with his PLATINUM-certified anthem “Drink to That All Night,” a multi-week #1 from the 2014 album HIGH NOON – on which he co-wrote eight of the 12 tracks. Niemann first burst onto the scene in 2010 with his #1 major-label debut, JUDGE JERROD & THE HUNG JURY, which skyrocketed on the strength of his PLATINUM-certified #1 smash “Lover, Lover” and GOLD-certified Top 5 “What Do You Want.” His second release, FREE THE MUSIC, included Top 15 “Shinin’ On Me” and poignant ballad “Only God Could Love You More.” From Academy of Country Music, Country Music Association and CMT Award nominations, to headlining and touring with some of Country’s hottest acts – Dierks Bentley, Brad Paisley, and Keith Urban – Niemann continues to make his mark by creatively pushing boundaries while still offering a sincere nod to the legends before him.
