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.

Damon Smith

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.
