Here's to Another Great Weekend of Entertainment!!! And Who Said MUSIC Died?

Your source for weekend entertainment in the Lehigh Valley areas and beyond. Rock and Roll at your fingertips!!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday and has worked the turkey and fixings overdose off. I know it took me a couple days to recuperate. I hope everyone is staying warm and supporting the local music scene when they can. This weekend brings plenty of entertainment for everyone and don't be afraid to go up to a band and thank them for all their hard work and talent. Thank you goes a long way! Keep rocking and rolling, supporting local music, and keeping the local music scene alive and well in the Lehigh Valley and beyond. Until next time...Music feeds the soul!!
