Just Passin' Through Series

The Just Passin' Through series was developed in 2013 by the Richards Landing Arts & Cultural Events Committee.  The series allows artists that are travelling through the area or are just interested in playing a show at our hall to have access to this venue.  Proceeds from the show are split between the artist and the committee based on show expenses and audience size.
