Dazzle
Performs

Dazzle has added an online “stage” for local musicians. This is the new outlet and for now, the new normal. We are asking local musicians and artists to send us a video of them performing or creating at home. We’re promoting our new stage to the patrons of Dazzle and the community at large so they can continue to support our artists with gifts of love and attention. Show us what you’re doing. Play us your new music. Send your love.
