Speaking of the Ballet Western Reserve, try to attend their Spring Gala on Sunday, May 19, at the Ford Family Recital Hall.

Not my taste ... give me the Youngstown Symphony ... Ballet Western Reserve ... Easy Street ... but then I doubt that very many folks here are capable of sitting through a great symphony, opera, or ballet. I don't mean to sound snobbish, but the noise that the younger generation calls music just isn't my glass of vintage wine.
 
My pop music love is big bands ... great pop singers ala Frank Sinatra ... Paul Anka ... Barry Manilow ... and orchestras like Andre Reiu ... Mantovani ... Glenn Miller ... Benny Goodman.

The west side has a very long way to go before it can compete with the North Side in the field of True arts and entertainment district, not to be snobbish. When the west side can get the Youngstown Playhouse to build a new theater there and move out of the south side, build a rival to the Stambaugh Auditorium, or build a rival to the Butler Institute of American Art that can earn world class status then we'll be impressed, but having a rock and roll venue just won't cut it.

A loss for the downtown for sure.

The new location is almost in the Garden District area (a welcoming neighborhood for the arts and entertainment crowd).

Youngstown’s legendary Cedar’s Lounge is moving to the West Side
By GUY D’ASTOLFO

YOUNGSTOWN
Cedar’s Lounge has found a new home.
The famed rock’n’roll bar will end its 38-year run at its current location and reopen in about a month at 706 Steel St. on the West Side. The new location was most recently the site of County Maigh Eo bar.
Mara Simon and Billy Danielson, owner-operators of the new rock club, made the announcement today.
Cedar’s last day at 23 N. Hazel St., downtown, will be Wednesday. The final live performance night will be Tuesday, featuring jazz musicians Jeff Bremer and Donny Yallech.
The bar has a long-held regional reputation for hosting top local and national acts, and will continue its legacy at the new location, said Simon.
Cedar’s is being forced to move because the new owner of the building that houses the bar, the Gatta Co. of Niles, is going to completely rehabilitate the three-story structure. When complete, it will house two restaurant/nightspots, with offices and apartments on the upper floors.
Gatta made the announcement in December, forcing Cedar’s to find a new location.
