A Legendary Experience

An intimate, close-up experience with legendary performers in a 100 seat, mid-nineteenth century saloon replica with state-of-the-art sound technology.

Tucked away on 180 acres of Mt. Jefferson just South of West Jefferson, Saloon Studios provides a sanctuary; a place where artists are encouraged to unplug from their life’s routine and be inspired and get in touch with their music, their soul, the soul of their music and to be reminded why they play. Much like the lyrics of the Jackson Brown song Stay “…Till those lights come up and we hear that crowd. And we remember why we came.”

Saloon Studios is committed to doing our part to make a difference in the world of music. We're scouting the music world, the cracks and crevices, and the underground of almost every music genre, including: country, rock n' roll, bluegrass, rhythm & blues, Celtic, folk, and more, for those Rising Stars to showcase to music fans of the world.

What our guests are saying about their experiences –
