Cadigan House Avenue

 “We are completely thrilled to be able to play a special acoustic set in such a special place,” said The Cadigan House bassist Cody Beck. “Being aware of your community and the ways that you can support and grow it has always been something we have strived to be involved with, and the RBCC is exactly that.”

 “We are all very grateful for the opportunities to, as a new band, share the stage with old friends The Cadigan House while building a fan base,” said Avenue guitarist David Massey. “There really just aren’t enough venues that support local music in Alton, and it’s great that the Center is available for that.”
