Vegas Unplugged set out to bring a variety of musicians to one stage and perform before a live audience in an acoustic setting. Now add the chance to give back to a local charity. That is an awesome music festival worth going to.
And many did.
On August 23, 2014, the Vegas Unplugged Music Festival had a lineup of bands that were just completely incredible. A great diversity of musical genres really kept the evening entertaining and your ears and feet wanting more. And, a bit of education was also involved as artists shared stories and the inspiration for their music and its origins, while gracefully performing their talent and passion for music, through their songs.
Included in this fantastic evening was the acoustic guitar donated by Washburn Guitars and the proceeds of the auction for that guitar, benefited Opportunity Village. Which also made the evening that much more special. You see, Opportunity Village also performed that evening with their own band named “Roaring Thunder”. So cool.
The line up for the evening was Las Vegas indie band Avalon Landing, the Bishr Hijazi Arab Ensemble, Roaring Thunder, blues musician PJ Barth and headliner Martin Nievera. Truly a remarkable musical night.
There will be many memories form this wonderful musical event. Can’t wait to see and hear Vegas Unplugged 2015!
