Our local all ages venue, The Talent Farm, is currently facing a financial setback. Many bands, friends, and artists have contributed to a fundraiser that has been created to help keep this place going. Please spread the word and help in anyway that you can.
Here is a quote from Mr. Burns, the owner of the Talent Farm, explaining the situation.
“If you’re reading this comment, thank you for coming this far. My name is Kevin Burns, and I am the caretaker of one of South Florida’s longest surviving all ages music venues and recording & rehearsal studios. Let me first say that I’m humbled by the actions of my younger friends who started this campaign, and somewhat embarrassed that I have not been able to sustain in my duties as caretaker of such a notable venue. I kind of feel that I’m letting a lot of people down, but in this day and age, with the economy as such, things have finally caught up to me and I can’t seem to make any headway at the present time. Business is cyclical, rent & electric are not. With your help, if I am able to reach this goal, I can get past the immediacy of these obligations, and focus more on finding additional ways to thrive. This may or may not work out, but I feel it’s worth fighting for at least one last time. If I am forced to close my doors, life will go on for all of us, and as they say… Maybe it’s for the better. But if I can have my way, I will at least keep the doors open until I can find someone that perhaps has a better business sense than me, or I’ll enlist the services of a creative team to create a greater flow of action here. If you can’t contribute, I still appreciate your taking the time to understand the situation. Word of mouth is a beautiful thing when used in a positive way. If you are interested or know someone who may be interested in a partnership venture or outright takeover of TTF, please let me know. I can be reached at the studio 954-438-3488 or email@example.com Thank you for your kindness!”
We are putting on a local show at the Talent Farm Saturday, September 28th to help raise money for the venue.
