About

We are so excited to be opening... THIS WEEK!

Our first two live bands are booked! 

Thunderhook 10/13  and In Clover 10/19.....Hooray!!!!

Located in the old Waxy O'Conner's space,  Willie McCoy's has spacious seating indoors and out, private event space, a full catering kitchen, a large beautiful bar right in the middle of the action, a stage for bands to entertain and room for people to dance.” 

Ever wonder where all the live music has gone? 

I can remember when Keene used to be full of live music every night of the week. Sadlym those days are gone. The main reason is the songwriting licensing fees from organizations such as BMI and ASCAP. 

It costs thousands of dollars in licensing fees annually to have live music. 

Did you know that restaurants and businesses have to pay fees to play music (like Pandora), have live music events, Karaoke or even play their TV's with the sound on? It's totally true! 

Most businesses can't afford these fees, so they opt to not have live music at all.

We think that LIVE music is necessary for our business and really important for our amazing community.

We need your help this first year to get these licensing fees paid...

That's what this campaign is about. We can use any help we can get! We live in a great community - full of people who support all things LOCAL. We know you are all excited about us opening - you've been telling us - and we are excited too!

We would appreciate any and all support we can get! 

Check out our rewards listed. We tried to come up with some super fun rewards for all our Backers. We are working VERY hard to get open in early October...so time is of the essence!

Thank you in advance to all you Willie Backers!

Risks and challenges

Thankfully, we have a very dedicated staff who is committed to getting open as quickly as possible. We are currently in the process of assessment and clean-up (dining room and kitchen), and all the other items are in process. We have put together a plan to have great staff, great food, great drinks, and great entertainment. We know we will be able to deliver in a reasonable time frame. We are so freakin' excited! Wahoo!
