THE STORY:

Todd Partridge wrote -

We all know that World Famous Byron's Bar in Pomeroy, Iowa is a unique gem in the live music landscape. As proprietor, Byron Stuart has brought world class entertainment to this magical place for more than 20 years.

With a heart as big as the Grateful Dead's bootleg archives, Byron has given his unconditional love and support to the local community, and to musicians and fans all around the world.

But, it's no easy task keeping things running. The historic building on Main Street is 123 years old and starting to show it's age. Roof repairs are ongoing, and the old rock foundation is starting to slip and needs shoring up. Insurance is always increasing and with this recent sub zero cold snap, heating bills are significant. Additionally, a new place in town has taken a bite out the already limited pool of local patrons.  

This is a chance for music lovers, all over the world to help Byron get over this rough patch and keep this cultural showplace up and running. Every little bit helps.

Byron is not one to ask for help, even when the situation calls for it, so I thought this would be a great way to quickly raise some money and show him that people care about what he is doing.   Please consider a donation and some words or memories in the comments.

Here are some articles about Byron's:
