Coming in 2023, Notes Live plans to bring The Sunset, a state-of-the-art music amphitheater, to Colorado Springs. Notes Live also has plans with the City of Murfreesboro, TN for a campus combining an amphitheater with our Boot Barn Hall and Bourbon Brothers Steakhouse & Tavern concepts. Additional venues coming in Georgia and Texas. This new live music company serves “entertainment deserts,” as we believe the demand for premium entertainment experiences will only continue to rise in markets throughout the country.


Notes Live (previously B-Entertainment) is a rapidly growing hospitality and entertainment company comprised of a pre-eminent team of professionals. The company owns and operates the Award Winning, 5 Star Bourbon Brothers Smokehouse and Tavern as well as Boot Barn Hall – the State-of-the-Art music and event center located in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The company is currently expanding its multi-million-dollar Colorado campus into the northern Atlanta market as well as laying the groundwork to expand into 10 additional markets over the next 60 months. 

Notes Live is simply World Class!

Colorado Springs company behind planned amphitheater announces next move

June 13, 2022
Notes Live, the entertainment company founded by Colorado Springs businessman J.W. Roth that's proposed an 8,000-seat outdoor amphitheater on the city's north side, aims to become a publicly traded company this year as part of a long-term growth strategy that includes multiple new venues.



Coming Soon: an 8,000 person state of the art open-air amphitheater in Colorado Springs called The Sunset. Backed with $40 million in financing and due to open in late 2023, The Sunset will host the largest touring acts in the country in style and comfort on the same campus as the company’s current mid-sized music venue Boot Barn Hall.


In an environment that runs deep with comfort and hospitality, we serve expertly crafted American classics and Southern staples out of a scratch kitchen accompanied by a selection of over 130 rare bourbons, ryes, and whiskies, as well as local craft beers. Our restaurant is built to feel like you are gathered around the family table with the ability to retire to our richly designed Bourbon Room for an evening of handcrafted cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and business networking. Bourbon Brothers has the capacity to serve up to 300 people.


Boot Barn Hall is our 1,400-person music and event venue. We’re home to weddings, corporate events, and over 100 roaring concerts a year featuring old-school Classic Rock to ’90s and today’s Country with all the names you love! Boot Barn Hall provides a rustic-chic atmosphere you won’t find anywhere else on earth! Starting with our multi-million-dollar, state-of-the-art sound system to our outstanding culinary and craft cocktail team – there are no words to describe this venue other than “world class” or “one of a kind.” Just ask those that have played the Hall!

Our strategic plan is to expand the combined footprint of our music venues and restaurants into 10 new markets over the next five years. Management is targeting expansion locations using a strategic and disciplined set of criteria that will provide a solid foundation for success.  The key elements include population density, traffic count, positioning between major markets, existing boutique venue competition, and accessible tax incentives. Notes Live will plan to lease facilities built to our specifications and invest $2.5 million in Furniture, Fixtures, and Equipment as well as allocate $500,000 in pre-opening expenses. 


We believe the demand for premium entertainment experiences will only continue to rise as populations grow outside of major U.S. cities. Our specialty venues offer audiences a fresh way to enjoy their favorite shows — and the results have been speaking for themselves!
