I may as well post this here so the rednecks here can have a go at me too. ( The ones coming at me at The Times aren’t as good as our rednecks)
On Monday Coun. Tucci had a motion before council to give a one time grant to the Conor Gains Band of $1,500 to help with expenses to compete in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tenn. in January. I spoke to this matter to council.
I impressed on council the caliber of both the musicians and the competition, and they approved the grant.
Now I expect all of you rednecks to start yelling and screaming about the “infrastructure,” (Please don’t disappoint me, I told council i was sure you would.) so go ahead and bitch. I don’t care, it wasn’t my motion, I just voiced my opinion, and Conor won’t hear you. He’ll be in Memphis.
(For those of you who aren’t rednecks, you can put this in the win column for the local art community. )
