Catching up with Tower Theatre co-operator Chad Whitehead
Stephen Tyler and Chad Whitehead set out on a mission for their community in 2017. They were asked to reopen the Tower Theatre as a place for live music and civic events.
In a quick rush from April to August of that year, they managed to make the building into a concert venue, and now it’s a destination in the historic Uptown 23rd Street District.
Whitehead and Tyler are also trying to get companies and party planners to see Tower as a destination for their next event.
Since opening, Tower has made a dent in the city’s and state coffers, with nearly $500,000 being collected in sales and mixed-beverage taxes. The little-venue-that-could started with Tyler and Whitehead running the show and now there are 27 employees.
