Now that Addison Agen has returned home, after finishing 2nd in the latest season of NBC's "The Voice," the excitement in her life continues full throttle, including a declaration earlier this week by Mayor Henry, of an official "Addison Agen Day."

The Sweetwater All Stars is a high energy, nine piece rhythm and blues band made up mostly of Sweetwater employees--and its owner, Chuck Surack.

Two years ago, Fort Wayne resident, Zoe Martin, shared a dream she had with her friend and neighbor, Jason Davis.

Now that dream has come true, in the form of a creative grassroots charity called Dreamcatchers.

Since NBC's "The Voice" began its live, weekly eliminations in November, many Fort Wayne residents have been on the edge of their seats as 16 year old singer songwriter, Addison Agen, continues to advance in the competition.

Sixteen year old Addison Agen has been performing music here in Fort Wayne since she was two, in a variety of venues, including nursing homes, church, school, coffee houses, and even WBOI's Meet the Music sound stage.

Now her platform has soared to national levels and beyond, as she advances as a contestant on NBC's "The Voice."

This Sunday,  community arts advocates Ketu Oladuwa and Michael Patterson are bringing a new kind of experience to the Fort Wayne music scene.

That's launch night for their "Jazz Talk Live: Big Apple Jazz Club Series," and its new, community-friendly home is Wunderkammer Company, on the city's south side.

WBOI's Burnt Toast Show is an eclectic mix of great, non-mainstream musical styles and genres, modeled after freeform radio shows of the '60s and '70s.

It's on the menu every Sunday night from 8:00 to 11:00, served up live by volunteer show host, Todd Harrold.

Fort Wayne's 8th annual Taste of the Arts Festival kicks off tonight. Celebrating the local arts and culture scene is a well established community tradition. WBOI's Julia Meek looks at the history of the arts festival, how it's evolved, and what visitors can expect to "taste" this weekend.
