Available Amenities

Comfortable Chairs & Seminar Tables

We have 50 new church-style padded chairs so patrons attending our concerts stay comfortable the entire performance. Yellow padded chairs with arms, and metal folding chairs are also available if you require more seats, or have different needs.

If you require tables, or are leading a meeting, we do have a podium available with 10 seminar-style tables available for use!

Seating for 100

The Riverside Room is approximately 1350 square feet, about 45 feet long and 30 feet wide. We usually have a standard concert-style set-up, but based on the nature of your event, we can arrange the room to what will best fit your needs. Please note the fire code limit for a table-and-chairs set-up is 50 people.

The kitchen and potluck area of Family Piano Co's Riverside room

Kitchen & Potluck Area

The kitchen area has plenty of surface area for preparing dishes, with a sink and dish-drying rack, if you so need them. There is also a mini-fridge with a freezer available for use inside the kitchen, as well as a commercial fridge outside if more room is needed.

Typically, during recitals and private parties, we’ll have tables in the back of the room for a potluck or reception to follow. If we’re expecting a larger crowd, we can move the tables into the hall, so everyone has more room to mill about and socialize.

Family Piano Co's legendary 9'4" Steinertone Concert Grand, which sits in the Riverside Room.

5’11 Kawai GX-2 Concert Grand Piano

Featuring the exclusive Millennium III Action with ABS-Carbon composites, the GX-2 offers the perfect combination of precision and nuance that will inspire the most passionate expressions of musical artistry. Winner of the 2017 Product Excellence Award from Music Inc. Magazine, the GX-2 combines the stately presence of a classic grand with an exquisite clarity of tone unmatched by other pianos in its class.

An 8-chanel mixer and amp, plus a microphone in the Riverside Room at Family Piano Co.

Sound Equipment & Projector Screen

You are welcome to bring in any outside sound equipment, but we have two large Yamaha PA speakers, and a basic 8-channel mixer / amp for running sound to them. We also have three microphones and stands.

The projector screen is wall-mounted, and basically hidden when not in use.

Dimmable Track Lighting

We were receiving complaints about how the lights were too bright and distracting during our concerts, performances, and recitals. Because we are always striving to improve the Riverside Room, we internalized this feedback, and installed three different tracks of dimmable lights for your viewing convenience.

The track lights are adjustable in position and intensity at your request.
