I enjoyed the Smokey Robinson concert here in my hometown of El Dorado Arkansas I believe that MAD (Murphy Arts District will help reverse the population decline that plagued El Dorado area for many many years with more entertainment and hopefully more good paying jobs

Attended MusicFest 2017 at the new music venue, MAD, and was impressed. Amazing amount of work to pull it off in time. I thoroughly enjoyed MusicFest and the improvements done by the Murphy Arts District.

This is a new facility in El Dorado, thanks to the generosity of the Murphy family. The complex was used for the recent music weekend and though there were teething problems, I'm sure things will improve with use.
