I’m very excited to let you know that Mel Bay Publications, the largest guitar publisher in the US, is featuring St. Joseph, Missouri, in their monthly “City Scene” article. See: http://www.guitarsessions.com/apr07/cityscene.asp
“City Scene” (directed by Mel Bay author and executive, Stephen Rekas), has highlighted cities including Baltimore, Los Angeles, New York and Nashville, so their attention to St. Joseph, and our International Guitar Festival & Competition (May 16-20) is not only confirmation as to how highly we are regarded by the professional music industry, but is an unprecidented complimpliment to our brilliant local musicians and the venues that present such a wide array of live music throughout St. Joseph.
Written by Julie Summa (watch for her up-coming “City Scene” article on London, England), with photographs by Sarah Johnson, the article features interviews and photos of some of the leading area musicians and lists selected venues throughout St. Joseph.
Hopefully this artistic reputation of St. Joseph will continue to grow into one of the primary tourist attractions to our city.
Please take a moment to skim the article and thank you for supporting the tremendous live-music scene that’s exploding throughout St. Joseph.
