Board Meeting:3rd Thursday every month
IBC Bank, 221 S Shoreline, 2nd floor at 9am
Twelve years ago, Downtown Corpus Christi was lacking a live music venue that could house large touring rock bands. With a background in the music industry and recruiting talent, Casey Lain decided it was time to give rock music lovers a venue to see their favorite bands and opened House of Rock. His concept was to bring music, art and community together in the entertainment hub of Corpus Christi with a venue that appealed to the followers of this classic and edgy genre. The House of Rock has been home to countless concerts, including greats like Clutch and Steve Earl, but it is the unique atmosphere that keeps the regulars coming back. Well, that and the pizza rolls.
To others considering opening a business, Lain says the key is to surround yourself with good people and involve yourself in the community. When asked about the biggest success of the last 12 years, Lain didn’t hesitate to respond. “It’s all the little victories combined that make one big victory.”
The House of Rock 12th Anniversary Party is Friday, July 28th beginning at 7 pm and includes 10 bands on 2 stages. Visit the House of Rock Facebook Event for more information.
