Brad and Richie – Live in Concert!


Pioneer Valley Radio’s Brad Shepard wrapped up his summer concert schedule with a “bang” in West Springfield, at the Morgan Road Pavilion, with a solid 90 minutes of Broadway and Pop favorites.  From Sinatra to Frankie Valli, and “Man of La Mancha” to “Chicago,” Brad performed for a crowd of more than 150.  With venerable musician Richie Mitnick at the keyboard, Brad has been singing in Western Mass. for 15 years. He has also been on the air with two dominant local radio stations, and now the present “hyper-local” Pioneer Valley Radio, for a total of 25 years.
