Former General Manager From The Ranch Acquires The Roxy Theatre To Create A Premier Country / Rock Bar & Concert Venue Powered By Impact Live Events!

BARRIE, ONTARIO, September 2nd, 2016 –  Al Quigley, former Ranch GM, has acquired 46 & 50 Dunlop Street West, formerly The Roxy Theatre (The Roxx).  Al has made the move mainly for better long-term planning and to provide a better concert venue and party experience within the historical buildings multi-level and theatrical set-up. The new business will be called MAVRICKS MUSIC HALL and will be kicking off with a soft opening mid-September.  Saturday nights will cater to the country music loving crowd but will also include big club rock anthems mixing it up for anyone wishing to dance the night away! Al Quigley says “This building holds a lot of great memories for many people and that has been apparent from the level of excitement and anticipation from everyone associated with the project.”

The new venue located at 46 & 50 Dunlop Street West has had many sloppy attempts to harness a nightlife business but Al Quigley’s decades of hospitality experience and quarterbacking The Ranch Nightclub since inception, makes him an excellent candidate for returning the location to its original and successful heyday. Al has also made a deal with the rooms original and longest standing Promoter, John Derlis of Impact Live (founder of TicketBreak & former marketing director from The Docks Entertainment Complex). Together they intend to take “Live Music Special Events” and “Country Saturday’s” to the next level.  They will have plenty of help from former Roxx G.M. Scott Knowles (currently Impact Live Director of Show Operations) and local design house DENT, spearheaded by local promoter, entertainer and brand builder Drop Daniels, as they deliver all genres of live music to a professionally managed music hall focused on the quality of service when engaging your party senses! 

John Derlis says “Given the higher ceiling and large concert stage providing better acoustics and sightlines, we can provide a much more positive guest experience! Plus, having the new professional green rooms and arena production, all artists who care about how their brand and musical product is delivered, they better stick to the pro’s running Mavricks Music Hall”.

If you have what it takes and are looking for a job at Mavrick’s Music Hall, attend the Employment Expo on September 6th and 7th from 5pm-8pm or contact Al directly for a confidential interview at (705) 503-5222.

ABOUT MAVRICKS:  Derived from the word “Maverick” and given the word's Wild West roots, maverick has always had an edgy, rebellious connotation: it originally referred to unbranded cattle that strayed from the herd, putting their ownership in doubt. It was then a short step in going from this original meaning to applying the word to a person who strayed from and did not follow the thinking of a group he or she belonged to, or who rebelled against accepted ideas. Maverick thus came to generally mean an individualistic and independent thinker.

Introducing MAVRICKS MUSIC HALL – A rebellious and technological new venue and ownership providing a full range “Country & Rock Bar Saturday Nights”, plus “Live Music Fridays” with local bands and tributes performing in between special events, which is a great new option for event organizers (full venue specs coming soon)! So if you consider yourself a bit of a maverick, we’ll see you at the all new Mavricks Music Hall re-defining Barrie’s entertainment scene!
