Live Music to Tickle Your Fancy This Weekend

Looking for something to do this weekend?? This list may give you some ideas. Great music, great talent, great people so get out and enjoy yourselves.

I can not say enough how much I appreciate the hard work and dedication of local musicians who sacrifice their time to entertain their fans. Local musicians do not get enough credit for the things they do on a weekly basis to please and entertain their fans. Being in a band is not an easy job, even if they do make it seem like it is a piece of cake. I will support the local music scene as much as I possibly can and do what I must to show them that they are appreciated. With that being said, here is a list of weekend entertainment. Please go out and support local music, and say thanks to the musicians. Thank you goes a long way!! Until next time...Music feeds the soul!!

Tracie, what's the best way to get show info to you?
Tracie L. Lovett September 27, 2012 at 09:11 PM
Ed you are on my friends list on Facebook. I post every Monday to get me a list of your gigs/events for this blog or you can message me on Facebook with your schedule. Either way is fine with me.
