Concert For The Cause

Concert For The Cause:

     The rain held off this week and Concert For The Cause got off to a rousing start on Saturday.  It was a small crowd but the traffic going by on the street was pretty impressive.  Maybe this coming week those folks will stop by and check out the music.  

     This weeks featured bands were Black Wall Monument and The Space Between.  I had already made up my mind about these bands before ever hearing them play.  I'll have to say that I was blown away, they were not what I expected. Original songs that I had never heard before that had me tapping my toe to the beat.  I even detected an Irish influence during one of the songs that The Space Between played.  Pretty amazing.  There was a little guy about 18 months or maybe two years old who was bouncing around on his feet to the beat. If you are not checking out the local band scene you are missing out on some amazing original music.  There's no better way to check out local bands, for free, than Concert For The Cause.
      Tonight's non-profit group was Big Brothers/Big Sisters.  Even though the crowd was small they were passionate about this organization and through food sales as well as other donations, Big Brothers/Big Sisters raised $130.  Pretty impressive when you consider the size of the crowd.  The Space Between band even donated some food to the event and those were grilled up along with hotdogs, hamburgers.  Mel Hambleton provided free popsicles.

     Next week Sean Story as well as Alex Cartwright and her band will be the featured entertainment and the non-profit will be 4-H.
