'Kill the Music' - We all know what to expect when we come to a concert...talented people perform...we enjoy...we applaud...but what happens behind the scenes of a traveling musical show?  Is it all fun and games, or is there a dangerous element involved?  Is it possible that someone will sing their last note tonight?  Will one of the guys be bumped from the road trip?  It will be up to you and your table of fellow sleuths to discover who the perpetrator might be.   Dressing in your best 80's rock and roll attire is encouraged!
