FWRMF 2012 Entertainment Schedule Announced

“We’re pleased to have committee member Rick Kinney managing the live entertainment portion of Maker Faire weekend”, said Jane Applegate, Maker Faire Fort Wayne Event Producer.  “Rick owns Even Keel Event Productions and produces music events professionally.  He worked to book entertainment that fits this unique event.  Plus, he’s an audio engineer so he knows how to lead a team that makes sure the music sounds good.  Rick also plays musical instruments he’s made and has been the drummer for Moser Woods for more than a decade.  Moser Woods is playing at the Maker Faire along with the Afro-Disiacs, Dan Dickerson’s, Harp Condition, Kenny Bergle, and others so we know the music will be great as well.  Thanks to Rick for his work and to all our performers for entertaining us at the Maker Faire.”

Check Even Keel Event Productions Entertainment Stage Schedule periodically as we might have to tweak things as we bring on attractions and activities to make the event even better.
