Bill Vinhage Returns

April 8, 2017, 7:30pm - April 8, 2017, 9:30pm

ABOUT THE ARTIST: Bill Vinhage is a singer-songwriter focusing on both original material as well as a very eclectic mix of acoustic-oriented cover tunes. Originally from New Jersey, Bill was active in the music scene in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York before moving to Tampa Bay in 1999. He has a diverse vocal range and unique guitar style. Bill's original material is influenced by rock, pop, jazz, country, broadway, folk as well as the AM radio stations of New York City he grew up listening to in the 60's and 70's. Among the influences you will hear in his music are U2, Paul Simon, Steven Sondheim, Neil Young, Roy Orbison, George Jones, Lennon & McCartney, James Taylor, REM, Johnny Cash and many more. An evening of music with Bill will take you on a journey to many places - come on out and see for yourself! Common Grounds is a quiet, comfortable "listening room" in Northport Florida and is the perfect venue for anyone wanting to immerse themselves in an intimate listening environment. Remember, Common Grounds is a BYOB venue, so bring along your favorite bottle of wine or six-pack of beer and enjoy an evening of intimate, original music. WEBSITE FACEBOOK LISTEN

We're proud how KDWRadio.com is growing in leaps and bounds and we could not have done it without our donors and volunteers.

We are extremely grateful for the generosity of Bud Buckley and Mindy Adams with Bishop West Real Estate Gulf Coast who are not only responsible for the Bishop West Real Estate Mobile Tower to expand our broadcast range but they also made a recent contribution so the station can add a booster tower to extend the station's reach even further.

Very soon, more of Southwest Florida will be able to tune their radio stations to WKDW 97.5 FM and listen to real community radio from North Port, Fla. We will continue to broadcast online at kdwradio.com/.

Bud and Mindy, thank you very much for your generous donation and the countless hours you donate to the station and Common Grounds Meeting Hall!

And if you see Bud today, be sure to wish him a very happy birthday!
