The Hessler Street Fair is a two-day celebration, and like any good party it comes with plenty of good music. The stage is set at the end of a cul-de-sac and the surrounding buildings form a "natural" amphitheater, reflecting the sound back out towards the rest of the crowd. This provides exposure for a number of local musical artists playing original music.

 

The music starts at noon each day, and continues until dusk. Fairs of the past have showcased musical styles ranging from rock to classical to reggae to jazz to blues to various forms of folk music. Bands have included such local favorites as The Night Owls, Cats on Holiday, Sultans of Bing, The P.L.U.S. Band with Carlos Jones The JiMiller Band and Ron Bean with the Hessler Blues All-stars.

 

Since 1995, Rich Maserik of Vertical Sound has provided audio equipment and mixing the music. The live music at the Street Fair has been regularly simulcast on WRUW-FM, 91.1 MHz, the student radio station of Case Western Reserve University. WRUW-FM is now broadcasting live over the Internet as well.
