Green Kayak Market Music Festival: Year 2/ A GREAT SHOW

We visited New Richmond on the Ohio this past weekend and, wow, was it fun. This was year 2 of the Green Kayak Market Music Festival on the shores of the Ohio River. Over 20 bands played and the Festival started with a cannon blast from a really cool (and big) cannon. How cool is that!

The music was varied but consistently top notch. We were told that in order to play in the Festival, every band had to submit a video showing how they perform charitable work in the community. What a great idea to demonstrate how the local music industry serves so many and makes our communities stronger.

Some of the folks we heard play included Drew Lanius (amazing voice)/Jay Aronoff, Life After This (lead singer is a blast), Evolv3 (great musicians), Jim Comodeca (soulful singer/songwriter), RPM (Randy Phillips) (heard on jukebox too), Randy Steffen (amazing), Van Buckley (awesome harmonies), Generations (very cool) , Broken Harp (great folk sound), Clockwork Soul (rockers), Mad After Dark (strong rock sound),  See You In The Funnies (flat out fun band), Jimmy Comodeca/Joey Loebker/Nick Ewan (excellent original tune) and so many more....

We hear the Festival will be on for a third year the second week of June 2015.....Be there!
