The 17th Street Music Club in Tucson started with an idea that was developed 15 years ago, when the former 17th Street Market and World Music Store opened its doors to local musicians and songwriters by creating a performance space and hosting all types of music events.
The World Music Store became a popular spot for concerts, open mic performances, songwriting contests and drum circles, and became a destination for purchasing world instruments, guitars, and drums. At one time it carried the largest inventory of local artist music CDs in Tucson.
Located just east of downtown, this 12,000 square foot complex now hosts the 17th Street Music Club, a private club and gathering place for musicians and music lovers providing its members with premier access to concerts and events, workshops and seminars, performance opportunities and music lessons for all age groups.
WoodSongs Coffeehouse Tucson has events there on the last Tuesday of each month and it is an all acoustic Listening Room experience for musicians and their fans of all genres. There is no food or bar service and the focus of the venue is truly to listen to the musicians.
