If you missed Tuesday's Entertainment Under the Stars with the Randall Hazelbaker Group because of the rain, click here for a YouTube video of the ENTIRE CONCERT! Kudos to David Woodham of OurColdwater for making and posting this video. There's also 5 more concerts - it has been extended this year! Scroll down below for full schedule.

This summer is PACKED with guitar events, please be patient with me as I try to gather the info and punch them all in! Entertainment Under the Stars, Relay for Life, Jesus Jam, Neighborfest, Northview Concerts, Special Jim Stout at Tibbits, etc.! Check back often for updates!

Jeff McGinnis, lead singer of Shades of Grey, has died (circa May 8th). He will be very, very, very much missed.

Click here for a video of the Moon Howler Band from the recent Car Cruise Block Party. Lots of other great events coming real soon - keep checking the schedule!

Older news: Sierra Shame has retired, and they played their final Coldwater show (3rd to last ever) on Aug. 27th at Eagle Hall.

A special thank you to Dickman Yee, the Coldwater Chamber, and all those others taking videos of the concerts last summer. The videos page with links to those and other concert videos is now quite large!

Benedict's Steakhouse is still closed - probably permanently, unless it can be sold and a new owner revive it and the live music.

Older news: Stingers Grill & Bar is now Matteson Street Grill. Bob's Guitars Plus closed in the spring. The Stratospheres debuted at a fundraiser at Northwoods Dec. 12th but, to my knowledge, have not yet been rebooked.
