May is on the horizon and coming at us fast. Our outdoor venues are cleaning up after a particularly nasty winter and we anticipate having listings very soon. Jim Meck, Steve Walker, Monkey Bizzness, John & Kass Bolles, Back Flash and Levi Bone (showing off their new line up!) are all WTIM friends waiting to make you smile and sing along this time. Up in Macungie our friends at Listen Live Music are bringing in one of the great touring blues bands, The James Armstrong Band. Seats are VERY limited so get cracking. One of our first outdoor shows just showed up (courtesy of Donald from Boyertown of course). Mark your calendar for June 15th, The Knights of Columbus will be hosting John Karl and Stephanie Grace in their beautiful grove over in Stowe. Last time these two played together at Greshville the place was packed and ROCKING! Tickets will include food, drink and the awesome entertainment. These tickets will go like lightening. Next week we’ll have the Boyertown Idol Tryouts listed so if you haven’t started practicing you’d better start …

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 two weeks in advance) and we’ll get it out there.
