I guess the BIG news this week is Musikfest taking over Bethlehem! Yes, there are many big names like Frampton, BB King, Styx, Foreigner and Darius Rucker at the Steel Stacks Stage, but what you may not know is that there are more local bands playing throughout Bethlehem than you can shake a stick at! WTIM friends Hillbilly Shakespeare is just one of many. The folks at Musikfest should be commended for their commitment to the local music scene. Don’t forget the Reading Fair, they too support our local talent and feature some every night during the fair. You can look for our friend Stephanie Grace there. Rumor has it that parts of this show may be taped and used in an upcoming Stephanie Grace music video! SO go big, go small but by all means DON’T STAY HOME!
Do you want to see your band or venue listed here at WTIM send an email to tdietterick@21st-centurymedia.com with the particulars (at least 2 weeks in advance ) and we’ll get it out there.
