This awkward time of year in between Christmas and New Year’s Eve can leave people wondering what to do if they aren’t in the office.

Watching “6 Guitars” is a Beautiful Experience

“6 Guitars,” written and performed by Chase Padgett is magic. Co-Written by Jay Hopkins, this show is not about magic per se, but the magic that exists in music and how music creates that magic through connectivity.
