Now under the Underground Music Collective banner, the Lehigh Valley Underground First Friday Concert Series continues in December with a mix of new faces and familiar First Friday veterans.
We’ve had a wild ride together so far, haven’t we?
It’s time once again for a fresh batch of songs, hand-picked by us for your listening pleasure.
Tonight, the Love Ran Red Foundation will host its Beer, Wine, & Swine benefit for adults with autism and developmental disabilities at 5047 Hamilton Blvd. in Wescosville, PA. For $20, patrons will enjoy barbecue, craft beer, local wines and, of course, live music.
One of the musicians performing, contemporary Christian artist Daimon Price, will perform on the benefit with his 16-year-old son, Jareth, supporting a cause that hits close to home. The below piece are Daimon’s own words about the importance of using music to support a cause.
This Saturday, November 10, our original home in the Lehigh Valley, PA will host Beer, Wine & Swine, a fundraiser for the Love Ran Red Foundation, which provides programs and services adults with autism and developmental disabilities.
We checked in with some of the performers on this benefit — namely, Sean Liebert and Corey Costa — who will join award-winning Americana band Scott Marshall & Marshall’s Highway and others on the bill. The trio shares their thoughts on supporting the cause and what’s in store this Saturday.
As previously announced, we have plans in place to move our base operations to Nashville this winter. This has prompted questions about the future of our events – namely, the Lehigh Valley Underground First Friday Concert Series, which takes place in South Bethlehem every month in conjunction with SouthSide Arts District.
The Underground Music Collective grew out of a love of music and the impact it can have on a community. With that, we want to highlight what musicians all over America are doing to give back to their communities.
Today, we start our Music For Your Community series back at home in the Lehigh Valley region in eastern Pennsylvania. That’s where Americana band Scott Marshall & Marshall’s Highway are working together with the Love Ran Red Foundation on a benefit this Saturday, November 10.
As announced yesterday, our goal is to connect the world’s many talented independent musicians to their peers and to the industry. What’s one way to do that?
Put them on a playlist together, 20 at a time!
Since January 2016, Lehigh Valley Underground has featured some of the best and brightest independent musicians, in our region and others. We have welcomed and reviewed submissions of all genres, covered hundreds of performances, and have built a stronger community around the art being created every day, in our own backyard.
As we continue forward, we are inspired to take what we’ve done in eastern Pennsylvania and use it as fuel to think bigger. We envision a platform that connects independent musicians with their peers in other markets, as well as with the larger music industry and its vast educational resources. This, we believe, will take everyone’s game to the next level. However, we realize that we must walk the same walk and do that ourselves.
Today, we announce the next phase of our evolution: We are now the Underground Music Collective (UMC).
