    I enjoyed reading about the different venues in Eliijay GA, where you can sit and enjoy music. I imagine that the atmosphere is different at each location, depending upon the type of music played and the number of people present at any time. Do you have a personal preference from all of the many venues available? One that you have frequented often and enjoyed the best?

      H, Alan! You are right about each place having a unique vibe, so my favorite depends on what type of thing I want that day. I’m a sucker for a great view, but I am also a big music fan who will go out of my way to see some great live music! 

      I’ve had great experiences at each Ellijay music venue, so you’re in good hands no matter which ones you visit! Have fun and enjoy the shows!!
