Musicians are both a contributor and beneficiary. They are naturally driven to impact and inspire others. Appearing in Band Central shows are the finest national and local artists, including Rock and Roll Hall of Fame artist John Oates (Hall & Oates), Ronnie Spector, Joe Bouchard (founder of Blue Oyster Cult), Christine Ohlman (SNL Band), and Will Lee (Fab Faux). Musicians are able to network through Band Central live events. Band Central provides career support and advice for musicians and fosters a vibrant local music and arts scene. This is meaningful to Connecticut’s economy and sense of well-being.
“A welcome surprise has been how empathetic and approachable the musicians are. There is an authenticity among them that communicates through the music. It’s as if our mission is as paramount among them when they are playing as it is to us.”
