A historic 1860’s building in Niles, Michigan will soon be the home of The Clinic: A Roadie Advocacy Group. Purchased by touring industry professionals, Paul and Courtney Klimson, The Clinic is a three-story, multi-faceted space, including five private accommodation lofts, a professional mixing studio, commercial kitchen, conference rooms, offices for in house staff and much more. The Clinic is set to open its doors in the summer of 2021, offering essential resources on and offsite to touring personnel.

The Clinic will function as a 501(c)(3) non-profit agency, offering its facility and services for little to no charge to touring professionals and their families. The first of its kind, in an industry with very little resources for roadies, it will offer therapy, education, advocacy, financial guidance, recovery resources, marriage counseling, family resources, suicide prevention tools, women-in-touring services, and temporary housing when available.

To keep The Clinic full circle, the design, demolition and construction is partially executed by touring professionals.

“The building came alive when the first roadies arrived to execute demolition. I am thrilled to continue utilizing crew members in every facet of the industry to complete this project,” said Paul Klimson, Clinic Co-Founder.

Regardless of the challenges road crews face, the show must go on at all costs, and over time, some find the transition to life off the road very difficult.

Courtney Klimson, CEO commented, “At The Clinic, we will create and provide resources that will aid in the transition from road life to home life, whether that be a place to stay and decompress, or to utilize one of our varied services.”
