A veteran of the music business is giving back to the community that launched his career.  Donnie Sandidge still leads the Alton-based band “The Undecided,” but lately his focus has been on giving other young bands the opportunity he was afforded nearly 20 years ago.

In the summer of 1994, The Undecided had a CD that produced a number of regional hits, and the band wound up opening several shows for bands like Motley Crue.  Now, he says it’s time to show off what the next generation has to offer.

The music showcases are held at 300 State Street.  That’s the venue on the lower level of Spirits Lounge at the corner of State and Third Streets in Downtown Alton.  The next one is tomorrow night, August 1, at 7:30.
