New Live-Music Venue Electric Grinch Launches in Schenectady, Nippertown


SCHENECTADY – Exciting news for music lovers in Schenectady! The Electric Grinch, a new live-music venue, has burst onto the scene and ​is already making waves.

The⁢ Electric Grinch, inspired by a popular bar from the 1970s and ⁢‘80s, is the brainchild of Mitchell Ramsey, the owner of ⁤the Jay St. Pub. With ⁤a blend of vintage⁤ charm and modern aesthetics, this venue is breathing new life into‍ the local music scene.

The grand opening on Dec. 22 was a true celebration, featuring a ribbon-cutting ⁢ceremony ⁢during the day and performances‌ from​ national recording artist David J from Rotterdam, ⁣along with Vinny Michaels.‍ The​ following night, The E-Block, one of‌ the⁢ Capital Region’s ⁣most promising young bands, took the stage ⁣by storm.

Ramsey,⁣ the visionary behind the Electric ‌Grinch, ‍shared in an interview with Nippertown, “I wanted​ to create something that doesn’t already exist here in Schenectady – a ⁤craft cocktail bar featuring live music.”
