The weekend of Aug 30th marks the one year Anniversary of Level Nite Club, and to celebrate this momentous event Loudd Magazine had the pleasure of chatting with Owner/CEO Torry Farley about what this past year with Level has been like for the burgeoning entrepreneur.
Former owner of Status Night Club, Farley is relieved to have made it through year one with Level. He stated that it is a defining moment in his career because most businesses fail within their first year; he is convinced that this next year will be better than the last. The shining moment of the entire year was working with Elite Management Group and that his biggest goal for the club is to make Level as synonymous to Gainesville, like King of Diamonds is to Miami
Carrying a true entrepreneurial spirit he gives a platform for the Indie scene hosting MADE Mondays and Woman Crush Wednesdays as outlets for the independent artist. He wants to see the indie scene grow and hopes to put Level and Gainesville on the map for any artists trying to make a name and build a brand for themselves. Loudd Magazine will officially be hosting the next Indie artist showcase at Level and Farley is very excited about this particular event, being an artist himself, he said that the Indie showcase will be a great event for the Artists here in the city. This will be a great opportunity for the artists since they will be vying to win their spot to open up for one of the acts coming to Level this semester; Iceberg, Yung Scooter, Santa Maria, and Ty Dollar Sign (who will be performing Oct 10th), just to name a few.
Farley placed an emphasis on business and community collaboration. He supports outreach programs such as The Flossie B Walker Foundation and The Circle that, hosts a canned good drive every Sunday with donations/contributions being given back to the community. In order to establish more business collaborations in the city, Farley looks to the opening of Venue (located directly across the street from Level) he has a high amount of respect for “Jay Littles”, and his team and would jump at the chance to do business with them.
One God, one goal, one destiny, is the mantra that guides his goals for Level Nite Club, and he doesn’t want Level to be just another club, he wants to broaden the horizons and make Level an all encompassing venue for the city of Gainesville. That’s evident by the acts he has lined up for the One Year Anniversary celebration on Aug 30th 2014. The entire club will be open with live performances and of course game-day festivities. This event will be one for the city and Loudd Magazine will be present making sure we get a glimpse of the Indie-Artists performing that night.
There will be a lot of business for Level coming in this next year and Farley has high hopes to expand the Level demographic, with plans for a Foam Party partnering up w/ Santa Fe and UF, Techno w/ Dada Life, and a Glow Party. He has plans to make Level Nite Club the hottest spot in the Gator City.
