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.
