Live At Ted's

Live At Ted's Live At Ted's is Wilmington, NC's only listening room. Ted’s is truly a one-of-a-kind music experience! Kelly (Ted) and Julia Jewell started the tradition back in 2010 and established the place as the ONLY live music listening room in Wilmington, NC.

In 2019, Trent and Whitney Harrison of the local recording studio, Hourglass Studios, took over and continue to host local and regional musicians. Whether you are inside enjoying the live music with a cold beer or out on the back deck with a glass of wine enjoying a view of the river, Ted’s has a little something for everyone. Most folks tend to say it’s a place that “just feels like home.” We hop

Our Story

Nestled at the west end of Castle Street right under the Cape Fear River Bridge, Ted’s is truly a one-of-a-kind music experience! Kelly (Ted) and Julia Jewell started the tradition back in 2010 and established the place as the ONLY live music listening room in Wilmington, NC. In 2019, Trent Harrison and Whitney Lanier of the local recording studio, Hourglass Studios, took over and continued bringing in local and regional musicians. Whether you are inside enjoying the live music with a cold beer or out on the back deck with a glass of wine enjoying a view of the river, Ted’s has a little something for everyone. Most folks tend to say it’s a place that “just feels like home.” We hope you’ll feel at home, too!
