Jonesfest Weekend, Turning Technologies Opens House, and Main Street Theater Opens

The first weekend after Memorial Day is here and the unofficial start of the summer is still going strong. If you have been hiding under that rock, this Saturday is the much anticipated "JONESFEST", right out in front of our doors here at 20 Federal Place. Work collaborators like Khaled from Prodigal Media, will be on stage with his band The Zou, as well as our fearless leaders bandmate from Jang-A-Lang and Copyright Infringement, Dennis Drummond will be on stage with a solo set, or maybe even some surprise Accent Media accompanyment by Chip.

A big Congratulations to Accent Media client, Turning Point Technologies, for their huge downtown open house event held yesterday inside and in front of the Taft Technology Building. The event was very well attended, and everyone was very impressed with the layout of the building and of course Turning Technologies themselves. We look forward to working with Turning Point Technologies in the future and wish them well as they keep expanding and putting Youngstown, Ohio back on the map. In case you didn't make it to the Grand Opening of The Main Street Theater in downtown Columbiana, which is owned by one of the founding members of Turning Point, Don Arthurs, here is our video we made for him to celebrate the re-opening of this fantastic showplace for movies, live performances, and a whole lot more.
