The House of Blues is the brainchild of Isaac Tigrett, an entrepreneur who launched his successful career with the opening of the first Hard Rock Café in London at the age of 22.  His first House of Blues opened in Boston to an enthusiastic response and other clubs quickly followed.  Chicago’s House of Blues however, captures the flavour of the city’s legendary blues status whilst introducing sophisticated sound, light and club acoustic technology for an exciting atmosphere.

The House of Blues features a large stage with elaborate sound and lighting and a restaurant.  Balconies are detailed in gold leaf decorative plaster that change color with various lighting filters. 

To treat the club acoustics, SonaSpray K-13 noise reduction insulation in black was spray applied to the concrete ceiling which rises more than 12 metres above the floor of the club by one of our expert in-house installation teams.

The area of ceiling sprayed is not flat, but more of a saddle shape.  The application of SonaSpray K-13 enabled the facility to maintain the integrity of the original structure and design.  The colour black was chosen because it doesn’t reflect light, this allows the client optimum control of the lighting in the venue.

In a musical performance venue, club acoustics are a critical concern.  The House of Blues had an additional noise consideration because immediately above the club are two towers of apartments.  SonaSpray K-13 appealed to House of Blues designers because of the product’s own excellent performance in reducing acoustic reverberation and enhancing sound quality.
