DoverPalooza Live Performance Shows At The Dover Teen Center

There are so many great, young bands out there, that don’t have a place to play. Well, we had a vision to create a venue where these bands could play loud, and play in front of a large crowd. The DoverPalooza Live Rock shows started here at the Dover Teen Center in June 2007, and have been steadily rocking ever since.

Live, local bands take the stage in our Arts Room, while crowds 50-100 in size take in the performances. On any given show night, we have 4-6 bands that rotate 25-35 minute sets, and sometimes we have an acoustic guitar opening act.

Bands that play the Dover Teen Center quickly become “regulars”, because the show is that much fun, and the crowd is that much into the live music.

“We love playing here, it’s one of our favorite places to play”, said Hadden Stamp, Lead Singer of “The New Highway Hymnal”.

“Its great to see that the Teen Center has become a hot spot for live music”, said Tyler Burdwood, lead singer of Bellwire”.

DoverPalooza occurs about once per month during the school year, and about one every 2-3 weeks. Our school year shows are on Friday nights, and our summer/vacation week shows are on Thursday nights. Our show times are 6:30-10:30 pm. Shows are FREE and there are refreshments available at our vending area.
