Music Break 2016
August 23, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 11:55 pm$10 – $15
When a city’s music scene rocks, so do its businesses.
Music Break, in it’s 5th annual event, connects the local music community to business leaders and opportunities for growth while showcasing the very talented and successful artists that got their start in the region. And for the first time in Music Break’s history, we will partner with Charleston’s New Music Confab to kick off their weekend and expand the spirit of connecting musicians to opportunities across the state of South Carolina.
Music Break is a one-of-kind event centered around our region’s music industry, and since we rock, there’s a lot to cover…
