The River Music Experience is 31,000 square feet of mojo workin’ inside the historic Redstone building at Second and Main Streets in downtown Davenport, Iowa. The RME promotes the joy of learning and listening to American's roots music. It is one of very few organizations in the country focusing on preserving a unique musical heritage.

This rare 19th century commercial structure is on the local historic registry and was home to a regional department store chain for decades before going through several transitional uses and a complete renovation.

The River Music Experience occupies the lower three floors of the five-floor building, with the upper two floors privately owned and operated as office condominiums. The RME's primary music venue, The Redstone Room, is located on the second floor. You'll also find the Performance Hall on the 2nd floor, while the RME Community Stage, sponsored by Falbo Bros Pizzeria, is on the first floor.

Our concert department produces more than 200 concerts and special performance events each year within our four-venue facility. The concerts we present feature the best talent in an environment that is intimate and conducive to appreciating the quality of the performance.

Portions of the River Music Experience facilities are available for private rental. If you are interested in renting a space at our facility, please contact David Bailey.

The RME is unique and has a variety of different stage and venues for performers and patrons to enjoy!
