Please join us, relax, and enjoy great music while taking a break from the effects of hurricane in our town.
CAC&G will also be donating half of all sales of our New Bern Bears poster to help with local relief efforts. We hope that everyone is safe and recovering from this disaster, and are grateful to our friends and neighbors that have reached out a hand to help others.
