Save the Buzz

Tranquil Buzz isn't just a coffee shop.  It's a gathering place for a large community of musicians, artists, poets, and those who appreciate an open and generous environment in which to sip coffee or tea, eat a little something, work in peace or meet friends, share music, poetry or  just have a friendly game of chess or gin rummy. The sooner the Buzz can open again, the sooner this connected community will be whole again. Jan and I have offered to help Dale meet his financial crisis head on with this GoFundMe effort.

Funds are needed ASAP to meet bills, buy expensive refrigeration equipment, finish the renovation at the new location, move in and re-open.  No amount is too small and multiple donations over a period of time will be accepted. To all of you who have called Tranquil Buzz home, whether locals or tourists or road musicians on your way to another gig, we need your help and will welcome you back with open arms as soon as we are open again. Please feel free to share this effort with fellow supporters.
