The Standard Journal - - FRONT PAGE - By Kevin Myrick [email protected]­stan­dard­jour­nal. net

Shine up the boots and put on a clean pair of duds, it’s time to check out the new Braswell Moun­tain Mu­sic Venue this week­end.

Though don’t ex­pect to be do­ing much of the Boot Scootin’ Boo­gie, as the Braswell Moun­tain plans to cater to a con­tem­po­rary style of coun­try mu­sic.

Allen Fen­nell and his daugh­ter Ann are plan­ning to open the new mu­sic venue this week­end with a va­ri­ety of new things to en­joy for cus­tomers who want to come and dance and have a good time.

In­cluded in the up­dates is a brand new dance floor in the cen­ter of the mu­sic, which Fen­nell said he be­lieves is one of the largest in North­west Ge­or­gia. The venue also sports an up­dated in­te­rior, bar and a sep­a­rate area with pool ta­bles for bil­liards play­ers are wait­ing for guests as well to come and en­joy.

What’s dif­fer­ent about the Braswell Moun­tain Mu­sic Venue is that when it comes to what type of tunes to play, Fen­nell has a fo­cused idea of what’s go­ing to work th­ese days to at­tract cus­tomers.

“Coun­try mu­sic has changed a lot,” Fen­nell said. “We’re go­ing to be play­ing a lot of newer mu­sic.”

He still en­joys the clas­sics, but he un­der­stands that as mu­sic and tastes change, so does the needs of a busi­ness.

DJ Skut (Bran­son Gowans) who will be pro­vid­ing mu­sic for Braswell Moun­tain Mu­sic Venue will take re­quests.

Fen­nell said if clien­tele de­vel­ops and grows for the venue, he’ll also look into hav­ing live mu­sic acts like up and com­ing Nashville stars visit Braswell Moun­tain, but for now he plans for just the DJ.

For this week­end, Braswell Moun­tain Mu­sic Venue is go­ing to hold a two-day cel­e­bra­tion with spe­cials through­out both nights for those who want to come spend a night out on their dance floor.

Open­ing cel­e­bra­tions be­gin on Fri­day night at 8 p.m. and con­tinue un­til 1 a.m., re­peat on Satur­day night on the same sched­ule.

Pa­trons will note that any­one who wants to par­take of adult bev­er­ages will get dis­counts on the night as well, with drink spe­cials for the Nov. 23 and Nov. 24 open­ing nights set at $2 for beer or shots of spir­its.

Fen­nell said that there won’t be a true menu at Braswell Moun­tain Mu­sic Venue, and he has no plans any­time soon of open­ing up a kitchen. How­ever some small pre-pack­aged items will likely be avail­able should cus­tomers need a quick snack on site.

Those who want to join in this week­end’s fes­tiv­i­ties can stop by on open­ing night this Fri­day on Sky­line Drive, lo­cated be­hind Braswell City Hall.

Hours are go­ing to re­main 8 p.m. un­til 1 a.m. on Fri­days and Satur­days for the time be­ing, Fen­nell said. He added that those may change based on how busi­ness de­vel­ops.

There’s also a cel­e­bra­tory $2 cover charge for those who wish to join in the fun this Fri­day and Satur­day night.

Any­one who wants more in­for­ma­tion about the Braswell Moun­tain Mu­sic Venue can con­tact the new own­ers at 678-883-9236.
