I LOVE this organization! When they came on the scene, much of the music had left New Brunswick and the surrounding area- it was a dead zone! Then along came this project and changed everything! Grown up great music multiple nights a week! Fabulous! I wish I lived closer or they'd come on down to New Hope! Help keep this great crew going!! They taught me when to clap!!
