克利夫蘭-聞名世界的搖滾樂之鄉

     5月20日,Mr. Jack J. Craciun III在Agora爲我引見了Mr.Henry LoConti Sr, 我見到的Henry先生和我想象中的Henry差別很大,因爲未見面時Jack已經爲我介紹了,他稱Henry爲叔叔。Jack説:Henry叔叔已經是82歲了,並且20多年前發現癌症動了手術,我面前站着的Henry先生,飽滿的精神,他帶領我們大家參觀了整個Agora,Henry先生是我們這群人年齡最大的,不過他的精神面貌和聊天的情趣給我的第一印象是Henry先生有一顆靑年人的心。


   Henry先生爲我們介紹了整個Agora,我參觀了數間録音房間,在録音房間我遇見了幾位來自加州和佛羅利達的歌手,他們興奮地説克里夫蘭Agora 是他們走遍美國最好的録音房,那里有最好的設施,還有演員們休息放鬆和娛樂的地方。當我看到Agora的墻上貼着許多明星們在這里演出的劇照時,我問了Henry先生,原來Agora 就是搖滾樂最早演出的場地,Henry先生還提到就在兩個月前,有一位從日本來專程觀看演出的觀衆,那位觀衆讓Henry十分感動,因爲這個演唱團是這位觀衆二十年前就崇拜的。在Agora里可以聽到許多這樣的故事。


     Mr.Henry LoConti Sr五十年代去過中國香港,那個時候他是一個軍人,60年代開始從事娛樂業,97年第二次去中國上海,我對他説如果今天您去看上海一定不認識。Mr.Henry LoConti Sr説會再去中國,他希望不久中國也會有Agora。
     Agora位于克里夫蘭5000 Euclid Ave,這棟古典式的大樓建造于1912年,里面有兩個劇場,一個能容納1400人,它的舞臺有5層之高,Henry 先生介紹説:當時是爲演出歌劇創建這個舞臺的。我看着這莊嚴典雅的舞臺想,如果伊利華報能在Agora這里慶祝十周年多好,那是我的夢想。

Agora Theatre and Ballroom


The Agora Theatre and Ballroom is a concert club located in Cleveland, Ohio.
The Agora first opened on February 26, 1966 in Cleveland near the campus of Case Western Reserve University. However, the Agora soon outgrew its original venue as its owner, Henry LoConti Sr., was a pioneer in promoting entertainment for young adults and college-aged students.
In 1967, the Agora moved to a new building near the campus of Cleveland State University. Once settled in their new location, the Agora played a role in giving exposure to many bands, both from the Cleveland area and abroad. Many bands such as Grand Funk Railroad, ZZ Top, Glass Harp, and The Raspberries achieved much exposure after playing the Agora. The Painesville Agora was also the setting of the concert by Paul Simon's character in the opening minutes of the 1980 movie One Trick Pony. The front facade of the Painesville Agora was temporarily swapped for the one shown in the movie. The Agora was the site of a live recording on the 1996 reissue of Patti Smith's Horses album.


The popularity of the club led the Agora to expand during the 1970s, opening as many as thirteen clubs, in cities including Columbus, Ohio, Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Tampa, Miami, Hartford, Akron, Toledo, New Haven, Painesville and Youngstown. However, the Cleveland location is the only one still in existence today.
In 1984, the Agora was destroyed by a fire. A little over a year later, they reopened in a new building on Euclid Avenue, east of Downtown Cleveland. They have remained there since then, and today is still a popular concert club, with many national acts playing there when they stop in Cleveland.
The present-day Agora has two rooms: a newly renovated [April, 2010] 500 capacity, standing-room-only ballroom with adjoining bar, and an 1800 seat theater. It is available for rentals, and is still playing host to nationally touring acts. Plans are underway to reopen the Backstage Cafe during the 2010 season.
The Agora is the host of Cleveland based band Mushroomhead's annual Halloween show.
