Check ‘Em Out: Over the Rhine began as a foursome in 1989. Today, the group is composed of guitarist Linford Detweiler and vocalist/guitarist Karin Berquist, a husband-and-wife team who have been married for 15 years. In the past two decades, this folksy couple has released 14 studio recordings and five live albums, and played with Bob Dylan, Ani DiFranco and My Morning Jacket.

To put it lightly, the group’s followers have an absolutely die-hard reputation. Over the Rhine is named for a vibrant neighborhood in the band’s hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio, that was once a port-of-entry for immigrants. Inspired by the rich history of their native soil, as well as writers such as C.S. Lewis and T.S. Eliot, Detweiler and Berquist make music that is organic and ethereal. Their kind of talent ensures them a place in the hearts of listeners for years to come.

The Venue:  The Triple Door

The Triple Door is located in the historic Mann Building, originally the home of the famous Embassy Theatre that was founded in 1926 and remained open for nearly 60 years. In 1999, the property was re-purchased with the intention of opening a modern dinner theater that preserved the ornate qualities of the Embassy. The Triple Door was founded four years later.

Today, many regard this downtown spot as one of the city’s most exciting musical venues. Over the years, the theater has hosted an eclectic lineup of artists and performers. Audience members can enjoy the entertainment in comfort, thanks to terrific service, a tasty selection of Asian-influenced delicacies from Wild Ginger and intimate seating that ensures a V.I.P. experience for all.
