Mark your calendars now as it will start at 6:30pm with an OPEN BAR (!) and it's free admission! Please check out the June issue of Rivertown as there is a nice three-page photo/story on the event and the honorees! :)

Street Team: If anyone would like to help us spread the word about RBMF, please write me and let me know if you want a .PDF of the poster which you can print out/send out/use for social media and/or send us an address and we can mail a bunch of 8x11 posters and 6x8 large double-sided postcards. Let us know and thx as we are still small/grass roots even though we have a killer lineup! :)

This year the RBMF is ten events from June 19 through June 23, which includes Levity Live, The '76 House, The Turning Point and German Masonic Park. As always, we will highlight some of the area's charities and the good works they are all doing in their fields of life.

So, come to town, shack up, have fun, hear tons of great music, try out great area restaurants, enjoy some local beer and enjoy life! So far there are people coming in from Scotland, England, Canada and various U.S. states!

Thanks as always for your support,
all the best,
Joe D
