Mayor Trent Sullivan
Crazy Arms is coming
to our region with a reputation for being pure musical magic.
Damon Smith is known for putting on a
highly entertaining and amusing show, and I encourage our region’s residents to
take a step back in time with one of our high-class contemporary musicians.
Crazy Arms really is a real celebration
of the piano, and all of the fun stuff that you can do on a piano.
It’s a beautiful instrument and along
with using it to play the music of some legendary musicians I get the
opportunity to talk about the piano and its significance.
I’ll be accompanied by an upright bass
and drums, and our goal will be to entertain to the full.
