New Venue in NorCal

As many of you know, I work in a fantastic music store in Davis, CA called Watermelon Music.  We recently relocated to a new site and things have been going really well for us.  One of the neat features of the store is a small recital hall/performance venue called The Melon Ball.  I just wanted to take a moment and let you all know about it.

The Melon Ball seats about 100 people.  We have hosted people from all over Northern California, the US, and the world in our new venue.  If you or someone you know is looking to book an event, please consider looking at The Melon Ball!!!

Here is a link for more details, calendar of events, and photos of past events:    Check it out!
