Amazing investigative journalism!

Okay, I got to give Joe Lawler cred for his investigative and reporter skills! Yesterday, I was thinking about how I had to contact the press and blogs about my show. Right after that, I read Juice Magazine. And there, in Joe's column, was my show!

A Night of Iowa Musical Diversity and Eclecticism!!!

A Corny Christmas and OlderMusicGeek Geekery presents:

A night of Iowa musical diversity and eclecticism!!!
Four very different musical artists gathering for one cause. United to help start the fundraising for a Christmas album of Iowa artists.

DARK MIRROR (Trash Metal/Power Metal)
We are just a group of metalheads who thoroughly enjoy playing. We don’t worry about what everyone else is doing, what’s popular, or getting rich because we believe the metal movement is about enjoying the music, staying true to ourselves, and supporting everyone else who is doing the same.

STRONG LIKE BEAR (Melodic, Songwriterly Bear-Rock)
Strong Like Bear is a song-focused band from Ames, Iowa that has played music since 2006. Percussionist Rachel 'Rat' Dudley and bassist Greg Bruna provide grooves and beats to the sweet-yet-edgy and melodic songs. SLB's vocal harmonies have earned them acclaim from fans and clubs alike.
