In the lead-up to the year's first Tosco Music Party, Ryan and mark brought in the event's creator, John Tosco, as well as Louis Beeler, founder of the popular Tiny Stage Concerts.

[CONTEST] We're giving away two tickets to Saturday's Tosco Music Party at Knight Theater. Just answer the following question: Vadim Kolpakov will be performing his brand of Russian Gypsy music on a seven-string guitar on Saturday. What American music icon has Kolpakov toured with in the past?

John Tosco answers the question in the podcast, so give it a listen and when you have the answer, email it to us at

We talked to the duo about how each have grown their respective concerts from humble beginnings to renowned musical events. We also discuss what it was like for John to see his kids hit it big with Justincase, and talk beer with Beeler, who brews on the side.

Don't forget that we recently arrived on Spotify, making it easier than ever to go local; just search "Local Vibes." You can also always catch up on all our past episodes at iTunes or Stitcher.
