More About The Bing Lounge

Many of the artists who have performed in the lounge like the space, mainly because it's acoustically very quiet. It's not a live room, but rather a very intimate space. The front row seats are 3' from the stage, which itself is only 8" high. (The low stage eliminated the need for special ramps and other safety requirements.) Some artists who have performed there: Shawn Mullins, Queensryche, Five for Fighting, Doobie Brothers, Crowded House and Clay Walker.


The build team

Five Alpha Broadcasting Employees were involved in the facility build: Marty Hadfield, Chief Engineer Mike Everhart, Thor Waage, Phil Biehl and Will Price. In addition, four local contract engineers were involved: Matt Green, Todd Leninger, Wayne Anderson and Tim Woods Jr. The general contractor was Ashforth-Pacific.
