Past, Present, Future of TVV

It all began in 2017-2018 when The Rothman Cypher a rap group I’m apart of was looking for a venue. We found an underground scene venue in a partially abandoned old warehouse called The Glory Hub which went on to become The Vibes Venue. That place we frequently performed at from 2017-2019.

Over that time I got to know the owner and the man running The Glory Hub which was mainly a Christian Fellowship and partially a Music Venue. Then came a time where the Production Manager asked me to run tickets at the door, then one day run the sound, then one day giving me keys, you get the idea here. And one day he got a job that started taking up more of his time so he asked me to run shows that he had organized while I could plan some of my own. So from 2019 to mid-2020 I managed and operated The Glory Hub. Until one day the owner said he couldn’t afford the venue anymore since buying a house and if it were to continue to run as a music venue I would need to get the lease in my name, and so I did. I think the bestowed it upon me cause that could see that I was very interested & invested in the music scene.

So in the last quarter of 2020 The Vibes Venue was born and we rocked shows every weekend for 3 months. In a time when only a couple other venues were hosting shows due to the pandemic and for a moment I don’t think anyone else was doing shows in town except us. We were alright though no one got sick and no outbreak was reported from our happenings. I think those months of 2020 were a very important part of the process for the Fort Wayne music scene to become what it is today.

Since the end of 2020 the original location of The Vibes Venue has not hosted any public shows. The landlord refused to take care of Fire Safety Codes that the Fire Marshal pressed on me. So until a new location is acquired I’ve been hosting shows at various locations like The Ruin, The Garden & Wunderkammer. However now I’ve elected to not do shows anymore until another space is acquired for The Vibes Venue to have another definite home. It’s been hard to accept that that might take years but I think patience & other endeavors are the next step after a year & a half of pop up shows at various venues. I got big plans for the next space!
