Flint Die-Hard, Music Promoter, Entrepreneur
March 13, 2019
Fish starts off the first segment on his show about the local music scene with Joel Rash, promoter extraordinaire, who started his career almost by accident in the mid-1980's as the band promotor for the Guilty Bystanders in Flint's gritty punk rock scene. A career filled with mayhem and magic, Joel has been thrown out of more places than we can mention. Listen to his stories about the days at The Capitol Theatre, what it was about Flint that drew him and kept him, and his thoughts about his recent visit with Yo Yo Ma.
Joel's most recent venture, Factory Two, is yet another of his fearless efforts. This time around, his focus is on the Maker's Movement, a social movement which attracts artisans, inventors, do-it-yourselfers, and tinkerers. Joel's establishment offers them a place, equipment, and mentors to help learn and create their ideas.
He is a thread of the coolest part of Flint's fabric, and can weave a helluva story.
