Six years ago, the very first Dayton Does Dayton Music Festival was spawned in the Gem City. This year, the festival is proving to be more powerful than ever with two full days of Dayton Ohio/Regional bands performing covers (with their own unique spins of other Dayton/regional area bands), plus their best originals; a true showcase of the talent that stems from Dayton.

So, where does UPG’s involvement lie? We’re glad you asked.

We are thrilled to announce that Stephanie Elise will be the official photographer for the Sixth Annual Dayton Does Dayton Music Festival, along with the assistance of Dane (aka Yung Quadroon) as assistant photographer! Yes, we are just as fired up about connecting with Dayton’s music scene as we are sharing the experience with our followers.
