Deep within the catacombs of the historic Taft Theatre lies a cavernous ballroom, heretofore unseen by the average theater-goer. Until this year, most people weren't even aware such a room existed (rumor has it there is even a shooting range just behind one of the doors within the ballroom).
Thank you Bill Donabedian. The founder and public face of the Bunbury Music Festival put together a great team that produced a top-notch event in the face of some obstacles. Now, do it again next year – please.
In 2010, local musician and long time WNKU fan, David Rhodes Brown, dropped by the station to let us know he was going to throw a big party with dozens of local bands, sell tickets, and donate the money to WNKU.
Bill Donabedian and his wife are expecting their second child this fall. But first, Donabedian will give birth this week to the Bunbury Music Festival, which sets up on the Cincinnati riverfront Friday for its three-day run.
