At KZE, we only promote local, independent businesses. These business owners are our friends, and neighbors. When we support them, we support our local communities.
In 2005, Falcon Music & Art Productions, Inc. purchased a 19th century button factory in the center of the hamlet of Marlboro. 1348 Route 9W, Marlboro, New York, is perched over the Marlboro Falls, once used to power the factory. Through the years, the main floor of the building had been a roller-skating rink, community center and a cabinet factory. It has become the “Village Vanguard of the Hudson Valley” and on a regular rotation with New York City's most respected venues; a rural Mecca for the finest in multiple genres; to include jazz, blues, rock, world music and contemporary chamber music. The 3,500 square foot main floor provides the acoustically correct, live performance venue with a 24’ X 16’ stage. Gallery space on the main floor presents & promotes the work of visual artists and photographers from the Hudson Valley to New York City. Exhibitions feature a different artist every two months. The Falcon takes no fee from art sales, but encourages visitors to buy original pieces from the artists. The barroom was created entirely with recycled materials. The bar itself had a past life as a shuffleboard. The Falcon's deck seats diners over the dramatic gorge that is Marlboro Falls. At the lower level, a patio area and a rock-walled pathway and lookout attract those seeking a complete experience - fine food, world-class music and an unforgettable natural setting.
