our mother ship, berean baptist church put on a large addition about 18 months ago. one element was a new youth area. since may of last year scott finn a volunteer has lead the effort to create a music venue for mostly indie bands called wired. for the last 15 months, almost every other weekend wired has hosted three – four young bands. it has grown to become one of the best things that north central ohio has to offer high school and college students as a healthy, enjoyable place to connect on the weekends. recently they hosted everyday sunday for their newest cd release…best night of our lives.
this past weekend was the finals of the 2009 ultimate talent challenge. i got a chance to serve as judge. although i’m not a musician by any stretch, i do appreciate those that take the craft seriously. so it was so cool to see 5 young bands from screamo to ballad to punk to rock and roll take the craft seriously and engage. here’s video wrap-up.
