Building Community

Many of you have supported Ignition Music Garage over the last four years. This spring The Goshen News printed a story, Making A Scene, of how our work with 91.1 The Globe, resulted in the launch of Ignition Music Garage. The story highlights how much the professional musicians, agents, managers and radio promoters value our community because we create new fans for them. Our patrons and members comprise an amazing group of people that share a love of great music.

Building a Music Scene

Our event revenue has increased 50% so far this year because Ignition produced two outdoor shows at Goshen Brewing. Our first show in The Goshen Theater is scheduled for OCT 20. New venues and concert series are also launching in the larger South Bend market. This is a sign that the audience is out there. The question is how do we get that larger audience to try out Goshen’s scene? Goshen Funded is important to us because the whole downtown ecosystem benefits when a hundreds of visitors are in town for an event. High quality music, whether live or recorded, moves people. The shared experience of a live performance when music and the audience come together creates a magical feeling. Here at Ignition we pride ourselves on providing the stage where the magic can happen.

Building a Stage

The stage exists as more than a physical space. The stage is a metaphor for local creatives to produce their art from a platform in Goshen, Indiana. By connecting artists to more fans we advance Ignition, the artists, and the community. Our plans are to record high quality audio and high definition video from Ignition Garage, and offer digital distribution. We feel it is critical to bringing in younger fans. By moving into the digital realm, we'll connect with new music fans, and hopefully show the magic that happens when musicians and their songs connect with an audience. We believe that video and online music can be the first connection point between a listener and an artist. If the song and performance are compelling, a new fan is created.

Building Artists' Careers

5 Core Media, from Goshen College has been contracted to produce the first program, a film about the release of Wilson Reservoir’s new album, “The Last Will & Testament of Buck Baker”. The record is scheduled for a September 30 national release. The short film will be part of the promotion of the new album. Nate Butler of Nimble Wit Productions will be the Production Manager, Recording Engineer, and Music Producer for the project.

Please consider an investment to help us build a larger stage and create our own media content to expand the Ignition community to a new larger fan base.

Keep the music scene alive and growing here in Michiana!

One of the questions was “What is your favorite music venue?” Ignition Music Garage ranked tenth out of the eleven music venues listed!
