Thursday, July 1, 2021 – Summer Social at Music Box Supper Club

Event Details/Registration

Enjoy a casual evening at the Music Box Supper Club on Thursday, July 1, 2021. Join fellow FEI NEO members and Strategic Partners for cocktails, food and networking from 5:00pm – 7:00pm.

We have access to a limited number of complimentary tickets available for the Madeline Finn and Friends show starting at 7:30 pm in the Supper Club. If you are interested in attending the show, please email our administrator – admin@feineo.org.

Madeline Finn touches on a wide range of sonic directions in her solo work: sparse folk, meditative piano ballads, twangy rock, and string-laced indie. Luckily, the Cleveland-raised singer-songwriter is also the rare vocal talent with the range to handle just about any music she wants to write. She’ll howl and whisper, rage and mourn, croon and conspire—always with breathtaking precision and heart-piercing sincerity. A Top 70 American Idol finalist in 2018, Finn has also fronted two bands (the pop-punk-leaning band Envoi, Americana-tinged trio Whiskey Hollow) and toured throughout New England, the Pacific Northwest, and her adopted hometown of Nashville.
