The Andrew J Brady ICON Music Center at The Banks is the new music venue on Cincinnati's riverfront from MEMI.
The state-of-the-art venue, which is slated to open summer 2021, features one main floor and two balcony levels overlooking the inside stage. The venue has a capacity of 4,500 inside, and 8,000 in the forthcoming outdoor stage.
And while its common for new sports/entertainment arenas to sell naming rights to companies or arts organizations to tag the name of a big donor onto a new venue, the new spot is named for a longtime Cincinnati music educator and musician.
The Andrew J Brady ICON Music Center is named after a 1938 University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music graduate, Andrew J. Brady. Brady went on to become the music director at Western Hills High School and a Jazz musician who worked with various youth programs over the years.
