The Akron Music & Art Association Showcase makes its debut at the Civic on Oct. 8 at 6 p.m.

The Akron Music & Art Association Showcase is an event designed to unite and celebrate the many great aspects of Local Music and Art in the Akron area. When the doors open at 6 p.m., the Summit FM will feature a "330 Stage" in the Lobby, which is an acoustic side stage, featuring selected Musicians from the Akron area each to perform live and be recorded and presented on the Summit FM 330 station for worldwide streaming. One qualified performer from our 330 Artist pool will be given a small opener slot on the Main stage. At 8 p.m., the event goes live to the Main Auditorium for our Showcase Acts including top performers such as Roger Hoover and the Western Reserve, Zach and the Bright Lights, Hey Monea, From Orion, and Mark Leach. The event will provide merchandise for all the acts involved as well as special promotions and giveaways specific each of the bands. It will also feature a full Art Exhibition in the Lobby where people will be able to view and purchase art from many great visual artists in the Akron area.
