Live performances are more than just a chance to play out and get your music in front of new audiences; they can also go a long way toward keeping your band’s business operation running smoothly.

Since launching The Quinn Spinn five years ago, I have come across hundreds of independent musicians in the Lehigh Valley and beyond. No matter the genre, experience level, or location of the artist, one common theme has emerged for musicians or industry professionals trying to achieve lasting success.
In all phases, professionalism is key.

Check out the list below, and feel free to add any I missed in the comments.
Lehigh Valley with Love is bringing more laughter to The Ice House on Thursday, March 1 – the first event in a new, four-part series of comedy fundraisers.
Local musicians Anita and Dan DeChellis are preparing to release their new improvisational duo recording, titled “Do You Mind.” To celebrate, the couple will hold a special listening party this Saturday at 8 p.m. at Connexions Gallery in Easton.
The Quinn is joined by singer-songwriter and die-hard Philadelphia Eagles fan Billy Bauer to talk about, among other things, the Birds’ upcoming Super Bowl showdown with the New England Patriots and the band’s upcoming single, “So I Love.” Billy performs the new single live and in-studio, and a great time is had by all as we prepare for the Parade Down Broad. HUZZAH!

Plus, we previewed Historic Bethlehem Museums & Sites and Lehigh Valley Underground’s joint presentation, Single Sisters Series: Songs For Sisters, and we welcomed local visual artist Bobby Zeik for an impromptu interview.
