Matt White: White Water going nowhere but up

Posted By on Thu, Jul 26, 2007 at 1:42 PM


Two of the original partners in the young management team of White Water Tavern that took over for Larry "Goose" Garrison earlier this year have left the business, but Matt White, one of the remaining partners, assures me that he and Sean Hughes are as committed as ever and plan to take the bar to new heights. He says he's "pretty much just working and sleeping now," but continues to look at the bar as a community development sort of project, and he says his heart is still fully in it. White says Seth Baldy, who runs the kitchen, will step in with a fuller role in the biz, and will continue to expand the menu (he's already been doing shrimp boils and catfish fries). August promises to be one of the band's best months for live music, White says.

Nick Coffin, an original partner, left a month or two ago for New Zealand to travel around and do organic farming, and M.C. Fergason, the other original partner and the initial financial backer, is set to wed Christopher Denny, the local folk-singer, and travel with him as he tours. His CD comes out August 7 and two CD release shows, one early evening and one normal time, will happen at bar on August 24 and 25.
