Make Your Guitar Gently Weep, Or Smile

March 30th, 2017

When referring to a band of fresh young men back in the 1960’s, a large recording company once said they “didn’t like the sound, and groups of guitars were on the way out”. That band, The Beatles, sure proved them wrong. A one of a kind event is coming to the Quad Cities, and you won’t want to miss it. Bret Dale, a musician from River Music Experience will be hosting a FREE guitar circle playing only Beatles songs! This guitar circle will be taking place on Saturday April 1 from 1:30-3pm in the Grand Lobby of the Putnam Museum (1717 W 12th Street Davenport). If you are interested in participating... Read More

Farewell, Ellis Kell, You Were True Blue To The End

December 16th, 2016

It sounds unrealistic and perhaps a bit cliché, but there are some people you can never imagine dying, because they’re so full of life. Ellis Kell was one of those people. The local music legend passed away from cancer early the morning of Dec. 16. It had been known for a while that Ellis was battling the disease, but I, like everyone else, thought that surely a man this strong, this full of life, this force of nature, was going to beat it. He didn’t. And so, he joins his beloved daughter, Karli Rose, once more, in another life, beyond this one. To be honest, the entire thing has felt surreal.... Read More
