What a great time!

The musicians sounded great, the audience was fun and supportive. What else could you ask for? Happenstance 2011 was a huge success and we have the Atlanta music scene to thank. So, thank you!

We want to be sure and mention this year’s sponsor again: Bell Street Burritos. Bell Street fed our musicians half off food to keep their energy up for the long day. Thanks to Matt Hinton and the entire staff of Bell Street Burritos for helping out this year.
