Warner To Help Kirk Ave. Music Hall Celebrate 2nd
One of the most innovative organizations to be born in the Roanoke Valley in the last 25 years is the Kirk Ave. Music Hall. The hall—and its founder, Ed Walker—will have its second annual Gathering of the Tribes April 5 at 5 p.m. and Sen. Mark Warner (right) will be the special guest. Let’s let Ed tell you about it:
“Last year was a blast and we hope you can come - free food and cash bar benefiting the Music Lab at Jefferson Center. Senator Mark Warner, who is very excited about Roanoke's continued renaissance, is attending and will speak and hang out. He's always been a great friend to Roanoke, and he cares about our efforts to make Roanoke and this region stronger.
"We also have some cool surprises lined up. So here are the details:
"What: An event to celebrate last year's progress in the music scene, to recognize some of the great achievers, and to continue to pursue the idea that Roanoke is Virginia's Music City and one of the U.S.'s more dynamic small cities. A small number of music awards will be presented, we'll celebrate some of the especially exciting recent career developments for My Radio.
"Who's Coming: Roanoke's creative community generally and especially its music community. If you care about making Roanoke a stronger, smarter and more vibrant city, we hope you will come. This is a family reunion of sorts to improve connectivity among some of the region's most significant change agents. If you know a musician, manager, venue owner, agent, educator, studio owner, sound engineer, music retailer, etc we want as many folks in the creative family to come as possible.
"Free food will be available from Mark Baldwin's Blue Ridge Catering as well as from Jeff Farmer and the guys at Lucky, who will be opening their new restaurant on Kirk Ave. in a couple of months.”
