It has certainly been a busy time for the DMMC! As we look back at such a fun year we would like to thank everyone who has ever bought tickets to our events, volunteered, and donated to our cause. We are ending out 2019 by asking for donations towards our programming. These gifts and donations go towards programs like our Music Education camps and after-school classes that help many children better their lives with musical opportunities. Until the end of the year our Board of Directors have offered to double all donations up to $2,500! Donate $10 and we’ll make it $20! You can certainly donate at any time of the year but now is a great time to make your contribution mean double. Learn how these programs help students like Daniel find their voice through music. Please take a moment to read his story and learn how you can help!

The DMMC would also like to thank everyone who came out to GDP this Fall, all of the bands involved, the venues, and anyone who was a part of bringing back our festival that is 100% focused on LOCAL and IOWA MUSIC! It was certainly a fun day celebrating tons of Iowa music and we would LOVE to continue this event year to year again! We will get more photos up from Til Death Productions on our GDP page soon! Until then, check out a few here!

And yes, we continue to work hard on organizing 80/35 2020, but don’t hold your breath on a line-up announcement QUITE yet. We’ll certainly let you know more when we can 😉
