Places to play: a guide for small ensembles and solo musicians near Dayton

As an amateur music performer, I am always wondering where in the world I can play guitar. I don’t like bars and loud music, so this takes my opportunities down to fewer than a handful of places. But if you look closely and keep a list of where performers are playing, perhaps I might find more places than I anticipated. If you are a solo music performer or small ensemble in the greater Dayton, OH region and you’ve performed somewhere unusual that isn’t a bar, please feel free to submit your locations in the comments below. As I find more locations I will add them to my list so check back often.
