Matt Kelley is the owner of The B-Side and One Lucky Guitar.

Matt Kelley has been making a difference in Fort Wayne for 15 years, with his downtown design and marketing boutique, One Lucky Guitar.

And a little over three years ago, he brought it all home by adding a unique performance venue to that space called The B-Side.

For a look at this “flip side” of Kelley’s world, WBOI’s Julia Meek invited him into the studio to discuss its niche in the Fort Wayne music scene.

Upcoming events:

Steve Forbert, January 24th, 2016

Rayland Baxter, February 28th, 2016

Chuck Prophet, March 24th, 2016

@ The B-Side

1301 Lafayette St, Fort Wayne

A Fort Wayne native, Julia is a radio host, graphic artist, and community volunteer, who has contributed to NIPR both on- and off-air for forty years. Besides being WBOI's arts & culture reporter, she currently co-produces and hosts Folktales and Meet the Music.
