If you've been out and about much around this part of the state, you probably know there are plenty of talented musicians and artists in the area. I thought it'd be a great idea to give those musicians and bands some props while also letting people know who they should definitely check out.

So here's your chance to let us know: Who are the best musicians, artists, and bands in this part of the state?

I know a few musicians and artists in the area who are constantly putting work in to host events and get their music out. This includes guys like Matt Rissi, Rahlan Kay, and Dick Prall (Dickie).
