AND turn another calendar page… closing the door on another summer. What a summer it was, but hold on folks because there is going to be no break in the action anytime soon! Venues in the area are shifting into high gear to deliver the best quality entertainment, anywhere.

How I missed the band name Bodies in the Lake last week for consideration in our favorite band name list is a mystery, but consider the mistake rectified. Check out our favorite balladeer Jim Meck as he roams Berks County. Dave Mells, Triple Shot, the Cider House Quartet and the mighty Dirk Quinn are all on the docket making it difficult to choose a place to go locally.

If you add acts like Jason Mraz, Madonna,Blake Shelton and The Stone Temple Pilots on the big stages to your options, your brain is guaranteed to explode. My picks of the week won't help matters! Train at the Borgata is a no brainer and as a sleeper locally The Shemps Invitational at Blind Hartmans has the potential to be a homerun of local talent. Just get out there and jam!

Do you want to see your band or venue listed here at WTIM?Send an email to redneck@berksmontnews.com with the particulars (at least two weeks in advance) and we'll get it out there.
