Music is said to heal the soul, and bringing tunes and arts to the east side are what local musicians, like Beth Kille and the grassroots group "Willy Wash," hope will revitalize the area from the Yahara River to the Capitol and from Willy Street to East Washington, as a location driven by music, food and arts.
"All these musicians, they're small business owners in a way; and I think supporting them in what they're doing only supports our community. The more that we support these musicians, the bigger they get, the more recognition it brings to our city. I think there is only a win, win, win that will come out of this," said local musician Beth Kille.
The Willy Wash group is in talks with investors, lawmakers, developers and city planners to look at ways to put their vision into action.
