It Happened Today!

I thought this might be a nice way to get your weekend started on the right (pun intended) note. Six musical events, all connected to October 5 on your calendar. Instead of posting them in a medley, I’ve put them here on video so you easily skip the ones you don’t want to hear.
But why would you want to skip any of them? 🙂
