Andy Snyder, Bar Manager
"Bartenders are just pharmacists with a better tasting inventory"
When it comes to cocktails, or craft beer, Andy knows his stuff. Ask him about his favorite Scotch and he'll take you on a journey from region to glass. But it doesn't end there... Andy helped co-create our signature Backstage Ale, with Elysian Brewery, available on draft only at our venue. As far as bartenders go, Andy is boss.

Ross Piper, Manager
Ross has been with The Triple door in some capacity since 2009. Hailing from the heartland he is a proud Wisconsinite though under the influence of his grandfather has a deep love of Detroit sports usually donning the olde English D, Honolulu blue and has designs to immortalize the Red Wings by tattooing their logos on his feet, a misguided notion that the Mercurial markings will make him look faster. The only other lasting passion has been music. Growing up in the rurals without the aid of a record store he spent his Sunday nights in the basement listening to rebroadcasts of KROQ's top 50, recording the weekly show onto cassettes. Eventually stumbling into the world of punk rock he found new favorite bands through compilations, mail ordering full lengths directly from the small labels and in some cases bands themselves. These days it's everything from the Misfits to Godspeed you! Black Emperor to Bon Iver to Parts and Labor. As the production manager he is only able to watch snippets of the shows he helps produce but is constantly humbled to work with and in many cases be introduced to many of the eclectic acts who perform on our stage.
