The Studio Pub, 1465 19th St., East Moline, opened earlier this month, with owner Jeff Smallwood promising live music every night of the week. This weekend, pianist Ron Malmstead takes the stage on Friday and Ren Estrand and the Blues Experience plays Saturday. Both start at 8 p.m. and there's no cover charge. There's open mic jams on Sunday nights. On some nights of the week, Smallwood will perform on his banjo.
The "studio" part of the pub is a full recording studio in the building, which most famously housed the Clubhouse, a nude cabaret, for about 30 years. The building is completely remodeled, Smallwood said, including a clean, open, bright look.
The phone number is (309) 752-5210.
