“Playing a whole set of local tunes, DJ Mediafrenzy invites you to come by, visit the music museum (Hall Of Fame), chat about bands and celebrate the amazing local music talent in this city,” the DJ (Melissa Parrott off-stage) says on her Facebook page.
“Directly after, Radio What Wave (helmed by FCLMA steering committee member O’Halloran) takes over for another two hours of local goodness.”
The weekend launch for LMW 2018 continues on Saturday at the Hall in the afternoon and at the Eastside Bar & Grill when JRLMA award-winners Full Petty Fever have a night-time gig.
Then, the Aeolian Hall gala marks the official opening of LMW 2018. The Eagle Flight Singers. Pride Men’s Chorus, Laurraine Sigouin and Chad Louwerse share the stage. The Aeolian’s executive and artistic director Clark Bryan and its jazz programming curator Bryan Gloyd are co-hosts. The gala is free with admission via an EventBrite “ticket.”
