“It’s funny how our first shot at this already spans across two nights,” said Local Music Day Founder Darryl Robins. “We originally planned Local Music Day as a single-night event, but so many great local bands with new releases wanted to participate that we just had to expand upon our original idea.”

“The Miami Valley has such a vibrant music scene. It’s really something special,” Robins said. “Local Music Day gives everyone in Dayton and its surrounding communities an amazing chance to hear incredible local music and pick up some fantastic original recordings.”
