Happy Independence Day, firecrackers! As we celebrate the independence of our country I will also be celebrating my independence from my walking boot. My ankle is healing nicely and I can move into a brace soon. I'll be out (gingerly) kicking up my heels soon!
3:1 Big Band Show
Sunday, June 30, 2019
Broad Ripple Brewpub Outdoor Stage
843 E. 65th St - all-ages, 6 - 9 pm, free
Three to One is a great mash of musical genres and eras, typically songs from the 60s and 70s. Mostly the music that makes you want to twirly dance. The core of 3:1 is Tom Kiefaber, Jon McKinney and Joe O'Connell. The big band includes Tim Fuller, John Byrne, Bill Mallers, Kevin Anker, Nancy Moore, Jamika Jones, and Nick Mallers.
They are the perfect summer Sunday evening band to kick back to.

Charlie Ballantine is celebrating release of his newest record, Cold Coffee. The album made up of mostly original songs that he wrote in a two week span last fall. The music combines Charlie's wide influences from traditional jazz to Americana inspired originals. Don't miss what is sure to be a great night of creative music from one of Indianapolis' own on the homecoming of his national release tour. The album will be available on vinyl, CD, and digital.
Not-for-profit director by day, music writer by night, Nora Spitznogle reviews music that happened and previews music and events around Broad Ripple Village. Nora managed CATH Inc coffeehouse at 54th Street and College Avenue for seven years. During that time she hosted hundreds of local and touring musicians, both at the coffeehouse and her home. When CATH closed in 2004 and the music was no longer coming to her, she had to wander from her corner of Broad Ripple to see what is happening elsewhere. You can find her at Second Helpings during the work day, waitressing at the Red Key on Saturday nights and prowling Broad Ripple music venues the rest of the time.
