We Need Your Input

by Romondo Davis
Deb and I consider to be more than a website — it’s a community of people who appreciate and support the casual arts. And the community isn’t just concert-goers; it includes musicians, bands, sponsors, vendors and the organizations and producers that schedule the shows, fairs and festivals.

Please share: we encourage anyone who has a concert or event-related story to tell, a photograph or video to share, or a question to ask to post them on Facebook or Twitter, in an email message or as a comment on one of the website’s event items or blog posts. And if you know of an event we failed to list on the calendar, please let us know.
