Deutschtown Music Festival Guest DJ set

Cody Walters of The Deutschtown Music Festival shares songs from Pittsburgh bands playing at the 2014 Festival.

The Deutschtown Music Festival is in its second year and was recently held again in the NorthSide, an area Walters says he is fond of and offers much to locals. Walter says with over 90 bands, performers and food trucks; the Deutschtown Music Festival has turned into a great way of exposing the neighborhood of Deutschtown.

After a small bar crawl Walters organized, people started commenting, saying  “hey, you gotta do something in the spring; you gotta do something in the summer,” and because there’s already music in Deutschtown pretty much every night of the week, it would be easy to organize a big music festival like this.

Along with this festival, Howes and Walters talk about the success of the Pittsburgh Banjo Club that performs in the NorthSide every Wednesday at the Elks Club. The Pittsburgh Banjo Club has spread in popularity, but also more recently to local young people which even sprouted a new leg of the Banjo Club called the Banjo Club Youth.
