WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Musicians, business owners and music lovers gathered tonight for a forum called, Tunes in Town. Sponsored by the Cape Fear Economic Development Council, on how Wilmington could grow its music scene.
The discussion, led by John Staton from the StarNews looked at ways we could get more live music in the city and how that addition would help local businesses.
“I think one of the things that came out was that people wish we had a larger venue,” said supporter Ian Oeschter. “Based on hands clapping and raised hands, people seemed supportive of the idea that Wilmington could have a larger musical venue and if we did it would redound to all the local businesses.”
Supporters hope to get a 5,000 seat music venue.
