Interview: Dave Cavalier

On Saturday I had the opportunity to speak with Dave Cavalier at Bourbon & Beyond, who is an artist you should definitely keep an eye on. His style has been compared to Gary Clark Jr., Jimi Hendrix and other greats. Dave just released his new live EP: The Main Sessions which is a follow up to his debut EP: HOWL.

Review: MidPoint Music Festival

This past weekend, Midpoint Music Festival took place inside of the Taft Theatre and Masonic Center in the heart of downtown Cincinnati.

Going to this festival gave me the feeling of a classy night out to the ballet or opera and exploring the different ball rooms was an adventure in its self.
