- This event has passed.
At this double bill show you are in for a treat with 2 veteran Columbus singer/songwriters! The show will start with the lovely Donna Mogavero doing a duo set with her drummer Dave Fowler & end with Lisa Gain & her full band the Rusty Silos.
Donna Mogavero is a singer/songwriter and professional entertainer. Donnas’ musical recognition of 30+ years began in high school. In the early ‘90’s she was recognized and awarded several Columbus Music Awards in categories of outstanding rock and folk vocalist, artist deserving higher recognition, acoustic solo performer and recording artist.
In the late 1990’s she wrote The Streets Where I Live. This song gave the listener a vivid description of what life looked and felt like in what is now known as “the art district” called The Short North before renovation of the area in early 2000. Shortly after that, with a little tweaking the song was used by Experience Columbus to promote and market Columbus, Ohio. She was the first woman Grand Marshall in 2015 for Columbus’s Italian Festival. She had her own Sunday Radio Show called the Acoustic Coffee House on Cd(101) now 92.9 from 1991-’95 and 1998-2000.
Lisa Gain is a critically acclaimed Columbus, Ohio-born singer-songwriter. Since 1996, she has been performing music as a solo artist all over Ohio. In the Fall of 2015, she finally formed her first band with drummer & longtime friend Bryan Rupejko collectively known as Lisa Gain & the Rusty Silos. In June of 22′ classically trained Pianist Megan Rainey has joined them as the keyboard/bass player. The band plays a mix of popular covers as well as her Americana, Alt-Country, & Smokey Folk Rock originals. Lisa has had her music played on NPR as she was crowned the first ever Columbus Tiny desk contest winner in 2018. PBS / WOSU has used her music on many different TV shows. Lisa also won an Ohio Music Award for best Americana single for her original song “2 packs of cigarettes” in 2014. Lisa’s voice has been described as “Conjuring up memories of Janis Joplin at her finest.” – Album Review by Rocking Magpie in the UK.
