27 Oct – Hex Hollow Open Stage Jam at Hex Hollow Music, Barto

Hey! Thank you all for coming to the Bark for Life event in Oley. We had a great time and rumor has it that plans are already being made for next year. WTIM friends Stephanie Grace, Me Against Me, Hillbilly Shakespeare all have rocking shows in the mix for this time. Matt and Tim Koss and the band will be once again putting on (or maybe it was taking off) their masks at the Cutillo’s Halloween Party featuring them and our friend Steve Walker is opening the beautiful Hex Hollow Stage for a what I think is the last outdoor Jam of the season. I just noticed that Kansas is making 2 area appearances. I wore the grooves off of more than one Kansas album and there may have been an 8-track trashed in there as well! October is a BUSY month, but try to take a break and check out some local music.

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.
