Chart topping Bay area recording artist and producer/songwriter, D’Wayne Wiggins and local distinguished Businesswoman, Yulonda Washington, have teamed up to Proudly present the new Maxwell’s Soundstage.
Aimed at downtown Oakland residents and their Jack London Square neighbors, the new Maxwell’s Soundstage is taking entertainment and nightlife to new heights. Boasting ample seating throughout, a state of the art soundstage with lights for live artist performances and a sizable kitchen with casual and tasty menu options, the new Maxwell’s Soundstage is raising the bar and setting a new industry standard. Forget the nightclubs of yesteryear. Maxwell’s is on a whole “notha” level.
With memorabilia placed throughout the venue provided by some of Bay Areas hottest recording artists, guests are treated to special moments in urban music history while eating, drinking and having the time of their life. “Everyone wants to feel like a star and be in the company of one. Think of it as The House of Blues meets Hard Rock Café,” explained Wiggins about the format for the new Maxwell’s Soundstage. “We’re the only venue in the city that’s bringing Hollywood to the Oakland in a way that appeals to young Professional Urbanites as well as those in music industry.”
“It’s a huge opportunity for us,” Echoed Washington about the new venture with partner D’Wayne Wiggins. The highly accomplished duo joined forces earlier this year to fill a void left by other nightclubs that closed in the downtown area. “Young professionals in this area have literally been starving for a nightlife that understands their entertainment needs-which is exactly why we’re here. We’re going to give them exactly what they’re missing.”
