After serving as interim, Tyson Danner is now officially the Executive Director of the River Music Experience in downtown Davenport.

Last September, Danner was working for Quad City Arts as Community Arts Director.

And the group partnered with the RME to allow him to take over as head of the nonprofit music organization.

All your favorite local artists will soon be on one streaming platform. This Friday, "QC Beats" will launch with a kickoff party at the River Music Experience in Davenport, featuring several of the musicians.
