Crushing Success

February 23 was the Benefit for The Crush Sign on Main St.  The original sign was a casualty of the fire that happened back in October at Nickel City Frets.  The  event took place at our C Dee Wright Center, with a 50/50, a basket raffle, food, and of course MUSIC!

Once again, I won nothing.  That’s 2 for 2 basket raffles winning nothing 🙁.

Here are some sights and sounds from the event.


Being a musician myself, I had a great time!  I loved all the original music that came out of these folks.  Sadly, I didn’t get clips of all of them.  However here is some video clips of Mark and a few of his students playing for everyone.

The night was a great success!  It was heartwarming to see our residents come out support local small business (and MUSIC!).  The Crush sign is UP, AND it survived the #WindStorm!  How about that!

Looking forward, March 21, Nickel City Sessions will be back Under The Crush, with my bandmate (band-husband), Harvey Brice doing a solo set!  That is reason alone to go.  I have to add it will be strange being there as “The Newsteader” and not “Harvey’s Bass Player”.  -JAP-
