The news is especially meaningful for Innovation Concerts founder Broc Curry who spent many years at the booking helm for Frankies. We can not wait to get started and look forward to continuing the rich tradition of live music at Frankies. We are currently accepting late summer and fall avails. Please email and with artist availabilities.

Since we had such a massive and positive response to Toledo Music Fest at Headliners, Innovation Concerts has decided to have a ROUND TWO, TOLEDO MUSIC FESTIVAL for the end of summer at Mainstreet on August 31st! There will be 3 stages and 30 + bands of all genres. From rock bands to rappers, DJ's to acoustic singer songwriters, the End Of Summer Fest has something for everyone.

Toledo's Mainstreet formerly known as The Main Event is located downtown,141 Main Street which is a block away from Frankies Inner City. Now is your chance to perform in the same venue that has attracted many well known acts from Kid Rock to Marilyn Manson, Nickelback to The Deftones. We'll have Jim White and the IMIJ Sound & Lighting crew working this event because they're
absolute champs.

The best part is, performers playing the TOLEDO MUSIC FEST End Of Summer Blowout will be able to sell tickets to the event and for each $10 ticket sold, the performer keeps $5. Who said you'll never make any money playing music? Time slots will also be determined by ticket sales.

Doors for the Toledo Music Fest End Of Summer Blowout open at 1 PM and all ages are welcome to attend. Load in will again be at 11:00 am so anyone who gets on the bill will need to make sure they can be there by then.

Any musicians that are interested in playing please contact Broc Curry or Cody Sizemore at or for more details. The Toledo music scene is getting stronger every day people, let's keep pushing the storm and get Toledo back on top! WHO'S WITH US?!
