NRD Ep. 61: Start Making Sense: Talking Heads Tribute's Jon Braun

On this episode of No Rain Date we’re excited to have as our guest Jon Braun, the energetic frontman and band leader of Start Making Sense, Talking Heads Tribute. Based in Bethlehem, Start Making Sense was formed by Braun and others more than a decade ago. As he explains, a one-off gig at The Funhouse evolved into something permanent yet flexible. Today the band counts 45 talented musicians among its diverse lineup, with some of them acting as core members and others performing occasionally. The music of the iconic group they pay tribute to is what unites them. COVID presented Start Making Sense with challenges but also new opportunities, and they have emerged from the restrictions the pandemic necessitated with new fans who found them online. They are excited to return to touring this summer and fall, with  dates around the region and the country being added. You’ll find more information about their upcoming schedule at as well as on their Facebook page. As always, Josh has a roundup of local news and happenings, with a special emphasis this week on recent issues that have led to changes in admission requirements at the Hellertown Pool.
