Looking Back Remembering A Awesome Macomb County Bar The Hayloft
Looking Back Remembering A Awesome Macomb County Bar The Hayloft. A couple of years have passed as the once venue rocked downtown Mt Clemens now is but an empty grass field. This once-Macomb County Bar is but memories now. Good ones.
The Hayloft opened as a country bar back in 1974 hosting such stars as Carl Perkins and Larry Atkins. It was sold in 1988 to Ron Masters. Over the years, the bar was known for rock bands. Macomb County shut it down in October 2011.
Attempts to re-open failed as the building fell into such disrepair. The 7,500-square-foot building was demolished to make way for a new development. Hopefully not a gas station but something that will make Mt. Clemens shine again.
Macomb County shut it down in October 2011 due to foreclosure. Some interest in renovation and investors gave the venue a glimpse of hope. As well as some controversy in getting the building back up to code. Eventually, it was too far gone to save.
Just scratching the surface of some of the great bands that played at the venue. Some bands are on their way up and some established played gigs there more than once. The list is long like, “Bret Michaels”, “Quiet Riot”, “Rik Emmett”, “Don Dokken”, “The Tubes”, “Jani Lane”, “Firehouse”, “Great White”, “Steven Pearcy of Ratt.”
Local bands like “The Look”, “Adrenalin”, “Sponge”, “Tin Pan Ally”, “EOS”, “Overloaded”, “Critical Bill”, “Zug Island” and so many more. Take a look at some of the acts that rocked the Hayloft at this link to their concert database.
Thanks to Mike Scott and Ronny Masters for some awesome memories and all the staff who were like family.
