Answering the Call
Checking things out around the rest of the region, I ask my Facebook followers each week where we can go to hear them play. This is what they said this week.
I am a writer and a dreamer; a mover and a shaker. I am self motivated to work and write my way through life. I am a mother and a business owner. I have been a music journalist and a band manager as well over the years. No matter what I do, life stays interesting and writing about it keeps me sane. My favorite subject is music! Support live music is the theme! Appreciation for the artists will be in focus! This is the North Carolina Music Zone! Welcome and thank you for supporting live music! Please share this site with your friends so we can all enjoy the dance. Thank you.
