The end of an era at The Recher Theatre

14 photos

Since 1997, The Recher Theatre in Towson has been hosting live music acts, big and small, giving many local groups a chance to perform. Mike Ruocco, who is originally from Lutherville, was one of those acts. He started playing when he was a teenager at the Recher in his then-band Plunge, went on to join SR-71 and eventually started the band Cinder Road. A week before the Recher closes for renovations to turn it into a club and bar, Ruocco led Cinder Road Saturday night to their final performance at the venue.

Below, watch a video from Cinder Road’s performance, and hear Ruocco and theatre owner Brian Recher talk about how the venue contributed to their success.
