A few years back we led into the music festival with a television series, Doug’s World and Elizabeth’s Too. It 26 episode program featured local live music, interviews and other stuff. This year, we’re rebroadcasting two shows a day on CCTV and a few more online, like this of the Dandy Warhols playing at The Great Idea at Enchanted Forest. See it on cable channel 23 at 10:30 tonight.
Still time to sign up for a studio shoot or stage at the 8th Cherry City Music Festival.

Another great band for the Cherry City Music Festival! Red Hook Gypsy straight out of Salem Oregon is gonna rock The Triangle with their rock/blues hits. Jake and Mike began playing music together in high school, and little did they know that years later they would be a well known local band with quite a fan base. In 2011 the bands drummer stepped out for personal reasons, and that left the remaining three members writing music and keeping an open ear for a new drummer. When their current drummer Ian auditioned, he was a perfect match for the guys, and the band was back up on their feet and more than ever ready to rock. Be sure to join us and Red Hook Gypsy this Saturday, April 7th, 10:00pm at the Triangle. See you there!
