The Playroom was designed to insure that Artists get the most out of their Rehearsal time.


Opened in December 1994 by fellow musician Eddie Z, The Playroom is Charlotte’s oldest and most established rehearsal facility.  Catering to musicians of all levels and all styles, The Playroom has been able to help musicians from all walks of life.  Currently home to over 125 musicians, The Playroom is conveniently located but also very private, The Playroom offers its artists uncompromising confidentiality which is important when your clientele consists of Grammy award winning artists that are looking for a place to fly under the radar and be as productive as possible.

We spent a 4-day lock-in at The Playroom when we were in town with 22 young musicians. Porter and Eddie went out of their way to make sure we had what we needed to get thru some intense 8-10 hr rehearsals. We had a great time, the space was perfect for our needs and the staff were totally cool and accommodating. Highly recommended for your music-making needs! Very cool place. Lots of room options!

The Playroom rocked, but the people are what made this place exceptional. We sent 25 teenagers and 5 staff members from all over the world for 3.5 days their way to rehearse before going on tour. Eddie and Porter took exceptional care of our students and set up the School of Rock AllStars for a successful summer tour. Great job and we hope to see you again soon!

Chicago Reloaded is an 8 piece band and everything was perfect. All the gear was in working condition and not beat up. The room sounded very good and the PA/monitor system was ready to go. The rooms were clean and the band was happy! Thank you!

I was a customer of The Playroom for over 3 years and had a wonderful experience. Our priority was the safety of our gear- we never had an issue. Secondly, the facility was clean and comfortable (to the point I felt fine bringing my kids by from time to time to listen in on our sessions). Eddie runs a professional business and I would recommend The Playroom to any professional or amateur musician looking for a convenient place to rehearse.

“Getting it done in Charlotte has never been easier thanks to the dreams of Eddie Z in putting a facility together for the music community. From national touring acts to the guys with the hopes and dreams of becoming the next big sound the Playroom is a full service rehearsal facility making it happen.”

“We’ve been rehearsing at The Playroom for 6 years and would never think of going anywhere else. Many of our band members also use The Playroom for their rehearsing and producing  needs when Anthony is off the road. Eddie and his staff treat us like family and for us The Playroom feels more like our living room. It’s home.”
