In the world of music, there are less overnight sensations than most people are led to believe. Long before most musicians ever play large clubs, theatres, and arenas, they must play smaller venues in order to build a following. Some less commercial musicians spend their entire careers playing intimate venues to devoted fans, even as they are inducted into music halls of fame for their far reaching influence. Stache and Little Brother's has long been committed to this smaller-venue musical spectrum, having been the linchpin of the Columbus music scene for over 25 years. During his ten years as owner of the club, Dan Dougan has maintained a commitment to giving local music fans a broad spectrum of these sounds, rarely heard on commercial radio. Preserving the art form of music by giving seasoned, yet, underexposed national talent a place to play, as well as serving Columbus' cultural community by being the premeire place to see local performers is the mission of Stache's and Little Brother's. Opened in the early 1970's as a restaurant, Stache and Little Brother's periodically hosted live acoustic and folk performers. By the late 70's, new owners Shelley and Mike Young made Stache's a live music night club, specializing in the blues. Curtis Scheiber, co-owner of School Kids Records, introduced a broader spectrum of musicians to the club throughout the 80's. Scheiber brought rising stars like the Red Hot Chili Peppers to play on the same small stage that blues master John Lee Hooker had graced. Soon, the room's reputation as a taste-maker made it a regular stop for an impressive list of up-and-comers as well as living legends. In 1986, the club was sold to another owner who attempted to wrest it away from the concert format, but found that live music was the business' true lifeline. In 1988, Dan Dougan bought Stache's and restored the club to its music first attitude. Ever since, the club has hosted some of the finest rock, blues, Celtic, country, folk, jazz, and Latino music that the city and nation have to offer. Dougan also supported community organizations by holding several benefits at Stache's. With the ending of his lease in 1997, Dougan has changed locations. A few miles south on the High Street strip is the new home of Little Brother's, opened in early May, where Stache's legacy will continue.
