I love the Listening Room. It is a small, intimate environment in which to listen to some really great acoustic music.

We found out about it from a friend and we went to Keith Anderson --blown away about the amazing value for your dollar--intimate setting--amazing set up with spending the night and the way the artist feels comfortable talking and telling their stories--after all it is called the listening room for a reason :). Go and find someone in the genre of music u love trust me u will not be disappointed.

I was in Port Clinton for a show at the Listening room during the winter and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. We stayed at the motel and had a chance to visit the local area including Marblehead. I am performing with my own band now and do not have the time to see a show, but when I get time we will be back!

Recently saw Leigh Nash for the second time at The Listening Room performing songs from her newest album. It was amazing. Am looking forward to coming back this weekend to see Anna Nalick again. Saw her perform previously at The Listening Room as well. One of the most unique and wonderful music venues in NW Ohio!

Awesome show tonight with Leigh Nash & her hubby, Steven! Getting to hear the back story on her songs & a preview of her new album is really special. Thank you, Ron, for bringing amazing talent to PC!

I loved that Jonathon hugged my sister after he signed the CDs. I hope he comes back to The Listening Room. He was so funny and entertaining and down to earth. I told him that he was so down to earth ...where in the world do you get to do that ?? I loved his stories especially the one driving down the road playing the harmonica and his love for his children. Plus writing a song for his daughter and Sandy. THANKS FOR MAKING ME LAUGH OUT LOUD !!!!

Jonathan Edwards ... Great show ... He was so very entertaining! Funny! What a voice! Loved the harmonica. The lyrics, though, very touching! I cannot praise this venue enough. What a tremendous service The Listening Room has provided to our little town. Love attending these shows!

Wow! I've seen quite a few shows at the Listening Room and Jonathan Edwards has been the best by far! I don't usually laugh out loud like I did last night but his stories were perfectly funny to me. Here is a guy who has been on the big stage (and continues to be on the big stage) but like everyone who has ever played the Listening Room, appreciated the love of our small venue. His musical craft was excellent and everyone there last night enjoyed the experience...even the guy in the back who asked him to play Southern Cross, a Crosby Stills and Nash song that he once sang. Jon's reply...hey Stoner, I have never played or recorded that song, far as I can remember. I am so looking forward to future acts. My wife and I have made the commitment to continue to see as many as we can...thanks again Ron Miller!

Take your friends. Introduce them to this experience. They will thank you! What a great, very affordable night out. Thank you for bringing this "home"! Every time I bring a friend that hasn't been here before, they love it and want to come back. As I look around the room at each show, I hope this room can be made bigger because most often they do sell out! Love this venue!

This place is great!! I saw Chris Cavanaugh out of town in October, then saw he was coming much closer to home. In had never heard of the Listening Room until this show. Definitely will be back. Loved last nights show with Chris! A definite must visit place very intimate and fun. Thanks for bringing him back again. See you all again soon.

Good cocktails, great friendly service and fantastic talent!!! And the best thing is...... It is right HERE in PORT CLINTON, OHIO!!! A great date night!!! We will be back again!!!

It was mine and my daughters first time attending a show at The Listening Room. We were so excited to find out Howie Day was performing there. We are huge fans! We were do impressed with The Listening Room! We absolutely loved the show and the atmosphere. If you haven't had the opportunity to check it out do so. You will not be disappointed!

My favorite is when I get to wash and style Mike's hair before his performance at the best Venue in Town!! The Listeneing Room... I think It's hard to pick one he puts his whole body and soul in EVER Performance he does!! One does stand out is when he played last yrs and came out as a special guest "Santa"... I am baffled on why he hasn't made it big with his voice,talent and his ability to get the crowd to dance, laugh and cry in one evening!!!


July 15, 2014

Wow! We saw a very impressive show last weekend with Tony Lucca. The Listening Room is an awesome way to experience top notch talent in an intimate setting. The sound is great, the service is friendly and the show was first rate. It was the first show we attended and we will definitely be back! This place is a hidden jewel!! A must see:)

I've been to 10+ shows at the Listening Room & have yet to be remotely disappointed. Always a grade A show w original, one of a kind, badass, singer/song writers. You leave with a personal connection to each one, itching to attend the next. Hope this place sticks around for quite some time. Ron & Staff are wonderful people.

Just heard the best artist we have heard in a long time! Jason White has such a way with words and plays a mean ukelele (as well as guitar and even a dobro.) "Red Ragtop" was great but he has other great songs that moved everyone to tears (I am pretty sure I was not the only one.) - he is that good!

Mark Rednour

We were lucky to randomly stumble upon The Listening Room while spending a weekend in Port Clinton. I work in the music industry and found everything about the venue, the staff, and the atmosphere very refreshing. When I make it back up from Columbus for another weekend, The Listening Room will be a high priority! We snuck in with a last minute reservation to see Jason White, and he has 4 new fans!

I have been fortunate enough to catch a few shows (Cumberland Collective, Mike Willis and Chris Cavanaugh) at the Listening Room, and it definitely does not disappoint!!! They veer away from the run-of-the-mill cover bands that the area is accustomed to, and fill the room with extremely talented singers and songwriters, most of whom are currently on the Nashville circuit and have had songs cut by artists on mainstream radio! You can expect a fun and affordable evening out, filled with a mix of genres reaching from country to soul and R&B. Each show also incorporates a Q&A session, allowing guests to ask questions and adding to the already intimate setting of the room. It is a truly unique musical experience and exactly what the Shores and Islands/Port Clinton area has been missing!

The Cumberland Collective was like my 3rd or 4th time to your venue. They were OUTSTANDING!!!! I Like my country in the "americana" or "alt-country " style ( never listen to mainstream radio country) and these folks filled the bill!!! Hope you can get them back SOON!!

We were there 02/16/13 for Marion Grace & Paul Sikes. What an AWESOME time we had. The venue was small and cozy which made the evening so personal. We always stay at Our Guest so the concert was an added bonus. We will be back!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to the listening room. The room package was very affordable. The hotel clean and quaint. The staff was very nice. Paul Sikes and Marion Grace were awesome entertainers. They are very talented and very personable. I love Paul's CD. We will definitely be back to the listening room.

Love, love, LOVE this venue! It's big enough to be comfortable, but small enough that you don't miss a thing. All the seats are good and it's a place where you really connect with whoever is playing and also with the friendly,helpful staff. We went to see our friend Trent Jeffcoat , and his friend Bryan Carr, in November, and it couldn't have been better. They put on a great show and had us all enjoying ourselves. Can't wait to come again!

Great musical entertainment in PORT CLINTON, Ohio ! Original songwriters with outstanding talent. What a wonderful experience!. Go see a show it is well worth it and very affordable! Very relaxing. Nice environment and staff.

For 20 bucks it's a $150 you're-in-the-front-row concert experience!

Trent Jeffcoat and Bryan Carr were two very amazing artists. My husband and I enjoyed listening to both of them tonight. I hope they come back soon!

Pat Porter

Trent and Bryan were so good last night!! They play off each other very well and there's never a dull moment with those two! Port Clinton is blessed to have your establishment and the opportunity to be entertained by such talented singer-songwriters. I think you may have to move a few walls to take care of the crowds when word gets out. Ron, thank you to you and Trent for sharing your new song. I really don't see that one on someone's desk for long. It's one of those "Hey, wait til you hear this song!" songs! :)
Thanks for a great evening!

Richard Leigh could have come from central casting for the part of singer/songwriter/raconteur. He looked like a southern gentleman; he sang like a balladeer and; worked the audience with charm and grace. I'd come back to see him again

Bruce Hicks

Looking forward to Will Hoge! Have seen him many times. He never disappoints.

Jodie & I had a GREAT TIME last night, they are not only Very talented but have great personalities, Jodie & I would highly recommend you visit this venue - Country fan or not! - Great talent is apparent in the perfoming arts, especially at the Listening Room!

We had a great time at the opening show this weekend. Meeting the fellas was great fun and the performance was AMAZING! I would suggest this to anyone who loves music. You walk away with a new appreciation for how these artists communicate
their deepest heart felt experiences. Mike and Mickey are more than Great song writers. They are now our good friends..

Kim Kaufman

August 6, 2012

Absolutely phenomenal! Three cheers for Ron Miller for bringing this fabulously innovative idea to Port Clinton! We had such a great time, and we will definitely be back. As for Mike and Mickey: WOW! They were the perfect artists to la
unch the concept in this area. We sincerely felt like we were getting a sneak-peek at mega-stars whose careers are certain to blast-off any day now. LOVED their voices (such tight, sweet harmonies!), the passion in their songs, and their engaging stage presence. We're total fans and we'll be following their careers so we can say, "Yeah, we hung out with them in Port Clinton one night!" ;-)

What a great show this weekend with Erin Thomas. Truly a gifted artist. All of the talent that has been to the Listening Room has been soooo good. If you haven't had a chance to go...get there. Next show August 24th.

Karen Dye

August 6, 2012

Erin Thomas was great! I had her autograph my CD because I know that in a year I won't be able to get an autograph because she'll be a star. Listen to her duet with Vince Gill called That Kind of Love, and get to the Listening Room!

Kay Zimmerman

August 2, 2012

I saw noah collins and trent jeffcoat for the first time and theta were absolutely awesome! Trent's song "Seed" made me cry. I thought that we were in for a cheesy show when we got there but this is one of the best things other than Keith A. Fleming's home deco shop to arrive in Port Clinton. I am a native but have lived out of town for over 25 years and have since moved back. PC NEEDS MORE ARTS DEVELOPEMENT LIKE THE LISTENING ROOM! The Miller's are right on track to bring PC back to it's glory of days gone by when the city was in it's prime.


August 2, 2012

It seems that every artist Ive seen in the Listening Room will be a star in the next year or two. The best talent Ive seen in the area- hands down.
