On Friday evening, almost 300 people packed the back lawn of the Juniata Valley Winery in Mifflin, PA. The crowd came dressed in their 80's outfits and enjoyed an evening of campfires, wine and 80's music. It was a great evening both weather – wise and from a crowd perspective. Avenue E played for three hours, and still, the crowd called the band back on the stage for two encores. There was even a Cyndi Lauper look alike contest! What a fantastic night in the heart of Juniata County! Avenue E is looking forward to going back next year and can't wait to perform again for our new friends in the south!
On Saturday night, May 3, Avenue E held a public event concert at the former Danville News Building, renovated and rebuilt as Pi Art Squared, a contemporary art studio/warehouse. With roughly 85 people in attendance, the band performed songs from several of their set lists that included hits like Land Down Under, Don't You Forget About Me, The Flame and Pink Houses. The crowd also enjoyed select coffees and teas provided by Bason Coffee Roasting. The setting was perfect, the music took the crowd back to the decade that everyone loves and the band was on fire from the first chord to the final note. The crowd left wanting more!
On Friday night, April 11th, Avenue E premiered at Zing Production's Booth Theatre on Mill St in Danville, PA. With a sold out crowd on hand to see the 80's band debut, they rocked through two set lists chalked full of 80's hits. From Tears for Fears to Toto to The Cars, Avenue E started strong with an electric energy in the air and finished each song with the crowd singing along. The band's performance also included crowd dialogue and interaction during the show. The band is looking forward to performing at the Booth Theatre again soon (most likely in the Fall of 2014).
