The Beginning

The Scarlet Room Foundation for the Arts began in 2014 as a concept by Chase Manhattan, Roland Thompson, and Brook Floyd.

The goal: To create a space where hardworking, independent artists would have access to the tools and support to develop their talents, allowing them the opportunity to create music in a safe and accessible environment for both musicians and their fans.

In 2015 Chase Manhattan teamed up with vitaminwater as part of their 'Project Hustle' campaign, and raised $50,000 to make The Scarlet Room Foundation a reality. Additional funding was provided by SoulFound Entertainment and Rainmaker Studios.

On April 25th 2016, The Scarlet Room teamed up with Night Argent to put on it's first concert in the new space. Several hundred music fans came out to see the performance, packing the venue to capacity, and spilling out into the parking lot.

The Scarlet Room is an ongoing project and depends upon the support of the community for continued success.
