About the event

Make Music Day has become part of our small series of special events alongside our Acoustic Show that happens at the beginning of the year, our end-of-summer videos and the All Hallows' Scream Festival. Unlike our venue shows which are currently called "And Then There Were Four", as we introduce our newest member (Mike Delgado - bass) and play through our entire discography, this will be a stripped down set that usually consists of some interesting arrangements similarly to our Acoustic Set earlier in the year.

We know the time is not ideal, but this is a very chill outdoor event supported by and supporting the Moore-Jackson Community Garden! If you've got an early out of work for that day, stop by and absorb some nature!

This is a free event!

From the MakeMusicDay.org

"It all started 42 years ago in France.

In 1982, Jack Lang and his staff at the Ministry of Culture dreamed up an idea for a new kind of musical holiday. They imagined a day where free music would be everywhere, all around each city: street corners, parks, rooftops, gardens, and store fronts.

And, unlike a typical music festival, anyone and everyone would be invited to join and play music, or host performances. The event would take place on the summer solstice, June 21, and would be called Fête De La Musique. (In French, the name means both “festival of music” and “make music”.)

Amazingly enough, this dream has come true. The Fête has turned into a true national holiday: the country shuts down on the summer solstice and musicians take over. Almost 11% of French people (7 million people) have played an instrument or sung in public for the Fête de la Musique, and 64% of the country (43 million people) comes out each year to listen.

Four decades later, the holiday has spread throughout the world and is now celebrated in more than 1,000 cities in 120 different countries."
