Windows are open, the trees and flowers are in full bloom, and the sounds of those early morning lawn mowers are filling our neighborhoods…it must be spring. I hope this post finds my readers all nice and twitterpated this season. I apologize for not posting anything in awhile…life has been very busy and I have been trying to decide on some changes that will be happening around POMC this year.Continue Reading
Have you guys heard the new Ed Sheeran music?! Holy cow! This guy is not only incredible at dropping a beat that everyone wants to be a part of, but his lyrics are written to shape and inspire the listener. I’ve always been a fan of this guy and am so stoked that he has some new stuff.Continue Reading
If you are from the Danville area, you may have heard of The Dystopians who have burst onto the scene this last year and have hit the ground running. Reece Niccum (age 17) from Covington, Ian Clemmons (age 16) from Bismarck, and Matt Nale (age 17) from Georgetown met five years ago at First Gig Rock N’ Roll Camp in Danville. It was there that the “stars aligned” and the boys were brought together to form a rock band that is taking over our local music scene.Continue Reading
The summer of 2015 was a summer of change…not only in my life, but in my city. The sound of community, hope, and promising opportunity rang throughout Downtown Danville through events like Summer Sounds and Culture Shock. Home base (for myself, many of the bands, volunteers, and patrons who attend events like these) is a little place tucked into the alley – Fatman’s Warehouse. Fatman’s serves as a favorite spot for music, fun, great people, and is owned and ran by Vermilion County native – Heather Pierce.Continue Reading
Once upon a time…there lived a beautiful Princess who sought to make the girls and boys of Danville, Illinois and surrounding areas’ dreams come true…
If you have been at any children’s birthday parties, or visited the Downtown Danville’s Farmer’s Market in the last year and a half, then you have most certainly ran into Danville’s own Party Princess, Bailey Williams. At just seventeen years old, Bailey started a business that reached over 500 Facebook likes within weeks. Suddenly, the teenager was booming in her own success. Bailey offers little girls (and boys) the chance to meet “real” Princesses and Princes from their favorite fairy tales.
The experience of walking into the SCP Recording Studio once again made me proud to live in Danville. The fact that there is so much support and opportunity to our local musicians never ceases to amaze me. I found Jordan Cundiff, along with Christian Cunningham and Stephen Emerson jamming out to the new Panic! At the Disco in the control room. This “buzz” I keep talking about that is happening in our town…that feeling was all around me as I sat down to talk to Jordan.Continue Reading
Going into my first interview, I had no idea what to expect. I had never interviewed anyone, and I wanted it to be perfect. I had no recorder, no computer…just a legal pad and a pen with sixteen questions written on the front page. I felt like it was my first day of school, and I had a point to prove. It turned into the feeling of having coffee with an old friend. Dustin Liggett (or Dustin Danger to his fans) has a vision – and it is to inspire – and inspire is exactly what he did to me.Continue Reading
