Music is in the Air and Spring’s on the Way (Promise) In Brief

Music is in the Air and Spring’s on the Way (Promise)

Music is in our name. It’s in our DNA. Our curators have made sure that we have a ton of great music coming up this spring, from Josh Ritter, Michael McDonald, Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite, and Melissa Etheridge to name a few. It seems like every week we’re announcing new shows and they’re going on sale to our members…quickly. It is understandable that one might escape your notice (Pro-tip: sign up for our enews to get those announcements).

My Music Hall, My Community Community

My Music Hall, My Community

Monte & Denise Wheeler look out over the 5 tons of food collected for the Seacoast Family Food Pantry at the Summer’s Fill the Hall Food Drive. For me, one of the most rewarding parts of my job is seeing and getting to know the broad array of artists that we are fortunate enough to work with.
