In anticipation of the Big Valley Day celebration, Rodney Manning of Bieber, a talented singer became a talented organizer of an Open Mike Night at the Bieber Memorial Hall Friday evening.  Rodney, recognizing the need for local performers at Big Valley's summer fun arranged for a public performance of local musicians.

The performers were great, the only thing missing was a large audience, so, the next time you see any publicity about music arranged by Mr. Manning, don't miss out in the enjoyment.

Rodney expressed the interest in attracting more local talent and perhaps starting regular entertainment evening in Big Valley where we can enjoy our local talent. Friday's performance shure beat CNN's election coverage on TV.
