Deep South The Bar
Preserving memory in an ever-changing cityscape
Deep South the Bar opened in 2008 and was the home to over 40,000 musicians - catering mostly toward local and regional acts. It was started by Dave Rose and his parent company Deep South Entertainment - a Raleigh based Artist and Event Management company since 1995. The items that donned the walls are personal. Most were acquired by the Deep South team through concerts they produced or artists that they have worked with. Deep South the Bar, for 11 years, was an integral part of the creative and vibrant live music community in Raleigh. These items are up for auction so that we may preserve memories of a Raleigh icon, while supporting our philanthropic partners that continue to make Raleigh great.
