4th Annual Depot Music Fest

Fun things are happening at the After 26 Depot Cafe.


Please donate to our SUSTAINER DRIVE here.

Sign up as a monthly SUSTAINER now and you will be eligible to win the 2018 SUSTAINER DRIVE extravaganza, yet to be announced, plus any additional incentives that arise during the year. 

Next year's drawing will be held during the 4th Annual Depot Music Fest, the first Saturday of August, 2018.  You can be certain it will be as good as this year's trip to Chicago for a Broadway production!  Sign up now!

We are pleased to announce that Leo & Pat Paveglio were the winners of the SUSTAINER DRIVE all-expense-paid weekend for two in Chicago on September 16 & 17, to see the Broadway Production of Hamilton.  They were willing to sustain the Depot with a donation equivalent to $26.00 per month, and we are very grateful to them, and to others who did the same.  Leo & Pat received a $100.00 Visa Card for gas and incidental expenses, Amtrak tickets from Kalamazoo to Chicago, overnight accommodations at the historic Drake Hotel, dinner at Malnatti's, and the Broadway production of Hamilton at the Private Bank Theater.  With their stay on the magnificaent Mile, it was a delightful opportunity to take in the sites and sounds of the Windy City.  Congatulations Leo & Pat!!!
