Kat Smith and Dave Powell from the very busy and very funny troupe known as OTRimprov are with Rick Pender to talk about the origins of the group, their varied performances and outreach efforts, and the upcoming IF (Improv Festival) Cincy happening September 10-13.


Two big, and relatively new, Cincinnati music festivals will be run by a Columbus company.  PromoWest has purchased the rights to Bunbury and Buckle Up. 

“We are excited to expand into the Cincinnati market,'' said Scott Stienecker, president and CEO of PromoWest Productions. "We have strong relationships with the bands that play Bunbury as they play our venues throughout the year."

According to a release from PromoWest, the concerts' founder, Bill Donabedian, will continue to oversee the events.  The company will handle booking, marketing, and production for the concerts.
