    Mid-October, a pop-folk duo, based out of Urbana, IL, is the partnership between Jonathon Parrish and Therese Brown. The two met while putting together a band in Jonathon’s garage. For him it was love at first sight. For Therese, not so much. Through persistence and determination, from the beginning of that summer to the middle of October, Jonathon finally had changed her mind. She had fallen for him. After that, they paired their musical talents together and with beautiful, well-blended harmonies and fantastically written original love songs, are playing venues all over Illinois. They hope to remind their audiences that true passion and love can come from the heart and be put into music.

    No cover charge. Musicians play for tips.
