The Local Music Showcase is two different events: On the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month, it is a “Show”, where a single, local act has the stage for the entire evening. On the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month, it is a “Showcase”, where three different acts perform, each playing a 45 minute mini-set. All artists booked are from Brattleboro and its surrounding towns. Every once in a while there's a month with 5 Thursdays. On those days something raucous and fun is very likely to happen!

In addition...The Local Music Showcase will be working closely with the historic Centre Congregational Church, located right in the middle of downtown Brattleboro, to bring you a fantastic range of musical experiences! Check our EVENTS page for details.

Donald McCullough, Local Music Showcase, Live Music, Brattleboro, VermontMy name is Donald McCullough, and the Local Music Showcase is my brainchild. I moved to Brattleboro in December of 2019, and as soon as I started to get my footing in the community, I realized there is an absolutely incredible wealth of creative talent that lives and works in the area. Music is my particular 'thing' - I'm a singer/songwriter myself - so I got the idea, pretty much right away, to find a venue and host a series of shows, highlighting and promoting the efforts of all these great musicians, who too often seem to operate 'under the radar' within their very own communities.

Brattleboro SHOULD BE a premier, New England Music Destination - we have that much GREAT talent living and working in our midst!

Then, to quote Bo Burnham, "the funniest thing happened..."

Covid interrupted my plans, but didn't quash them. I hosted my first show, in a downtown venue, in July of 2022, then moved my weekly event to its current home, at Bar 580 (580 Canal Street), in May of 2023.

We're going strong, hosting our regular shows weekly, while developing and working with other venues and artists to create unique events, and make sure this VERY lucky community always has something incredible to get out and enjoy.

I hope you'll Subscribe and share, Share, SHARE this stuff around!
