MRMfest2013promoFriday, August 16th, 5-10 pm $5

The Madden Road Music Fest is a micro-festival celebrating locally-made music. Designed to bring together locals on the Central Ohio music scene, the festival is hosted by the singer/songwriter and homegrown Ohioan Daniel Dye and the members of his family who come together as The Miller Road Band. With sets featuring everything from Indie Rock to Gospel, the Madden Road Music Fest has a little something for everyone. This year’s festival features a potluck so that friends, neighbors and friends’ neighbors can share a meal while listening to some great music.

Net proceeds from the festival will help fund the restoration of the Madden Road Music Hall in Mutual, Ohio. The music hall is Mutual’s former town hall, a unique early 20th century brick building that was, at one time, the community center of this small crossroads settlement, playing host to town affairs — including the occasional basketball game. Madden Road Music Fest helps sustain the building’s renewed life as a venue for the community to come together again. And there’s no better way to make this happen than to listen to live music together.
