"As a little kid, Gretchen Menn remembers loving the music of Michael Jackson, and there may have been some David Bowie in there too. That all changed when she turned 14."
We have a supporter of live music here in Sin City, by the name of Randy Smith. Randy's service dog was named Maddy. A delightful border collie, she went everywhere with him, including the musical venues, where she would calmly go on stage with the band playing at full volume, and curl up at the feet of her favorite guitar player, or even in front of the kick bass.
