Summit County events calendar: 10/18/13

The Barkley Ballroom will host Josh Rogan for a free show Sunday. Rogan is true grit, living the love he sings. His music is rock ’n’ roll soul with a near constant message: You’ve got to dream to make it happen. Rogan’s songwriting has a simple style where the silence is as important as the notes. The songs are about loss, longing, love and the pain and joy of being human. He sings with a compassion that says, “I understand the feeling and I’ve been there, too.” The music runs from 7 to 9 p.m. Visit for more information.
