BILOXI—A new music venue is scheduled to open in downtown Biloxi. Kress Live is a music venue that is nearing completion of its construction just in time for its Grand Opening event on Friday, July 4.

The venue will hold 2,000 people and feature musical acts from across the nation.

Developer of Kress Live, Chase Taylor, faced several obstacles over fire and safety codes, but he’s overcome to fulfill his vision of restoring Mississippi musical culture in downtown Biloxi.

“There’s so much history down here, and unfortunately, there’s been no other venues like this to preserve this culture. You look at the House of Blues’ around the country, and it’s all kinda built around the Mississippi-Delta vibe. Why don’t we have that in Mississippi?” said Taylor of his inspiration to build the music venue.

The Grand Opening for Kress Live will follow the City of Biloxi's firework displays. Kress Live will host an electric firework show and music late into the night.
