Rose Music Hall’s story starts back in 1999 when then Blue Note owner Richard King expanded his business and purchased the venue formerly known as Mojos, located just a few blocks from the historic theater-turned-music-venue.

After 34 years, King sold The Blue Note and Mojos to Matt Gerding and Scott Leslie. The pair came armed with a promise to continue King’s legacy of bringing great live music to Columbia and to expand the culture even more. Soon after, Mojo’s got a new name: Rose Music Hall, a tribute to local writer, musician and namesake of the adjoining park, Forrest Rose.

The calendar is full of great local and national talent, alternative-programming events, and a jam-packed park season that includes happy hours, music festivals, community events, weddings, and so much more. 

A few of the noteworthy bands who have graced the stage at Rose Music Hall & Rose Park include The Pixies, R.E.M, Arcade Fire, Chance The Rapper, Spoon, Jack Harlow, Ben Kweller, Tapes ‘n Tapes, Portugal. The Man, Whiskey Myers, The Breeders, and Bright Eyes, and countless more.
