Saturday night: Band Together: Concert for a Cause

This Saturday night, September 17th, our jam-master Dan Wright is playing with his band at the Music Farm. The event is called Band Together: Concert for a Cause. This benefit raises money for cancer research, so it really is a worthy cause. Besides Dan and his band, you will see Gaslight Street, Weigh Station, Ryan Bonner and the Dearly Beloved, and Mary's Got a Band - that's a lot of great music in one place! Get your tickets early on etix for $15, or at the door for $20. We hope to see you there!! Doors open at 7.
