Local musician and founder of website, “The Band Junkies” Luke Cimbala uses social media to his advantage when it comes to sharing music. Founded in 2019, his website puts all local musicians, bands, music teachers and studios all in one place and also regularly shares information on the Facebook page.
“There is a hidden gem buried deep into the town of State College that is blind to the occasional, yearly visitor. When the sun sets, the music scene comes alive. As an underclassman, I didn’t understand the power music has in this small town until I turned 21 and was allowed to walk through the bar doors. I started to dictate my bar schedule based on the bands that played that night. They had the capability to sway my night (and most of my friend’s) because they were just. that. good.”
