Bloomington’s Troubatour, Travis Puntarelli

06:00 pm to 07:00 pm
The Venue

On Wednesday, October 17th, beginning at 6:00 p.m., The Venue will again host one of our most pleasing ongoing events, a concert by Travis Puntarelli. Those who have heard him perform know Travis’s genius, and those who have not will recognize his extraordinary talent, in a heartbeat. His range of original musical and lyrical styles appears to be limitless, as is the number of instruments he has mastered. A Travis concert is truly a treat. And it’s free.
So join us, on our porch weather permitting, and inside our welcoming gallery if not. You will not be disappointed.
