We like to celebrate and experience musicians from all over the RI/MA/CT areas. If you know someone who you think would be a good fit (laid back, relaxing, you know, the kind of music you start humming along with and then catch yourself singing in the shower the next day...), let us know. Send us a message on Facebook!
