Today is the first day that Hermann’s Jazz Club and the View Street Social Club (next door) are being managed by the Arts On View Society. The change in operations was secured through a five-year, renewable lease with the estate of Hermann Nieweler.

 

Tuesday, July 16, starting at 7:30 pm, the Phatfunks offer the first live performance at Hermann’s Jazz Club, 753 View Street, under the management of Arts On View. The Phatfunks a dynamic young band of emerging musicians, are kicking off a new, bi-weekly summer funk series every other Tuesday night at Hermann’s all-ages venue. 

 

Media are welcome to attend this historic night.

 

“We are delighted to take this essential step in our journey,” said interim executive director Nichola Walkden. “Hermann’s Jazz Club is the longest continuously-operating jazz club in Canada and we are thankful that the community’s generosity has kept Hermann’s alive, vibrant and growing.” Hermann’s was voted “Best Nightclub” by Times Colonist readers earlier this year. 

 

In addition to making improvements to the two clubs, Arts On View is working to open the upstairs venues for its vision of a non-profit owned performing and visual arts centre.

Wonder what kind of clause the Arts on View Society has in their contract to run Hermann's - what happens to them if the building is sold?

unless their lease is properly registered on title (along with a floor plan survey) their lease can be invalidated by a sale.

The Drawing Room was so much fun with the giant living room lounge area at the front and the dancing floor at the back.

William “Bill” Turner is the chair of the Arts on View Society, and said that as the managers they’ve been well aware that the property would eventually be listed.

 

“It was certainly crying wolf; there were so many times we thought it as going up for sale, through the period up until now,” Turner said. “We’re hoping if someone buys it that we’ll have a great working relationship with a building investor, but there’s no guarantees.”

 

Presently the Society has a five-year lease on the building, something that Turner said would be difficult, but not impossible for a new owner to break.

 

“We are considering what our options are in terms of our vision for the Arts on View, but our whole performing arts concept hasn’t changed,” he said.

 

In the meantime, renovations will continue, as will bookings for many months ahead.
