Let's support these guys by attending their gigs and giving them a shout if you are in need of some great talent for an event.

Important Notice!

This page has been changed recently to "attempt" to consolidate both "One Night Stands" and "Steady Gigs" into one listing for our member's (and, Palmer's) convenience.  Please refer to our Ohio Fingerstyle Guitar Club Calendar often to see where our local Ohio guitar professionals are playing.  In fact, "book mark" it.
