CALL FOR MUSIC ACTS
My name is Troy Martin, I am the pit master at Smoked on High. 755 S. High St. We are looking to start doing live shows. These shows would be acoustic, the venue is more a intimate setting for the fans and the band. We are going to start this inside and hope to move it outside to our front area when time permits.
Right now we are looking to book a June 6th show and a show every Saturday after.
We are looking for acts that play bluegrass, folk, blues, jazz, and country. You can also speak with me at 614-420-0221.
