Going on the road is often anything from the sublime to the ridiculous.
Downstairs Live is the Sublime. Chuck and Heather have found a way to
create an exclusive, hip music venue in the most outrageous place of all, their
beautiful home!! And it rivals any small venue I've ever been to in LA,
Nashville, or NY. Performing there was fun and loose, intimate, spontaneous,
and an all round great time. The audience was enthusiastic and fun. It is a
place an artist goes to really feel appreciated and remember why they got
into the business in the first place. I am looking forward to my return!!!!

The following was written by Augusta writer Steven Uhles after he attended his first Downstairs Live show in September 2011:
Basement concerts keep magic in music
It’s possible I’m about to make an Augusta-area concert promoter angry. I’m going to tell the world what an excellent job he’s doing. However, because of the rather private nature of the concerts he presents, I’m not going to tell people where these shows, which take place in a well-appointed basement somewhere between the middle and edge of nowhere, take place. I’m not going to post a link for tickets or list upcoming dates. I’m not doing any of the things I usually do when I discover something I love.
