Music Vault — a huge new venue near Savannah — hosts Corey Smith on 6/7

So there’s a new venue in Hardeeville, South Carolina: Music Vault. Coming from Savannah, it’s about 8 miles from the bridge on US 17 just before the intersection of 170. Click here for a map.

Buckcherry was the first big act to play the 1,000+ Music Vault. That was on May 16, and it looks pretty successful from the photos posted on the venue’s Facebook page.

Corey Smith is coming June 7:

A recent Savannah Morning News article makes it sound like country music will be the thrust of the programming — The Charlie Daniels Band has already been booked for November — but I hope the Music Vault will consider a wide range of performers who need a bigger space than Savannah currently has. Sure, we’ve got sit-down theaters that hold 1,000+, but we don’t have that key venue with lots of standing room.

It’s going to be interesting to see how this thing plays out — and how many Savannah music fans will make the short drive north of the border.
