Stay in the Loop!
Stay in touch with latest efforts as Cleveland Rocks Past Present & Future moves forward with our support efforts for the NEO Music Community.
Cleveland Rocks: Past Present Future has been creating free public concerts in the Waterloo Arts and Entertainment district for the past 4 years and we are back at again in 2021, as we all emerge from the COVID shutdown of the past 14 months. The impacts of COVID-19 have been dire for working musicians and the music industry as a whole. Last year we had to pivot and do virtual concerts, but were able to pay our scheduled musicians and actually help expand audiences because of the added online reach. This year we hope to do both live and live streaming.
This month’s event will feature Erin Neal and the Chill Factors and the Non Bruises.
Join us in person for this free event (standing room only) or watch the virtual livestream.
Erin Neal & The Chill Factors: Eclectic Cleveland based band formed in 2015. Erin Nicole Neal & The Chill Factors, delve into Blues, Rock, Pop, Soul, Jazz, Funk, R&B, Gospel and Reggae. The band plays all over Northeast, Ohio for private and public events. Covers include artists like Aretha Franklin, BB King, Janis Joplin, Bob Marley, The Temptations, Bill Withers, Bad Company, The Beatles, Michael Jackson and more!
Non Bruises: non bruises are locals Elliott Hoffmann (drums), Carol Schumacher (bass/vox), Andy Stibora (gtr/vox), and Mike Uva (gtr/vox). non bruises is a real team effort, representing both east and west neighborhoods in our fair city. non bruises write songs on the fly and title them impulsively. Drone-y, chime-y, bend-y, space-y, non bruises puts their collective ear to the ground for sweet hooks, tangled guitar lines, and propulsive rhythms. non bruises hope to inspire others to start a band with friends, hang out, and make music. it can be a fun and healthy activity!
The Waterloo Makes Music series will take place the first Friday of the month June-September as part of the monthly Walk All Over Waterloo art walk. Your support allows us to again pay musicians and the production team needed to mount our Waterloo Makes Music series.
