We opened our doors in 2011 in Kittanning, Pennsylvania. We were told by neighboring businesses that we would not last six months. We have hosted small concerts featuring the music of local, and regional young artists. We have opened our doors to students attending the Lenape Technical School in Ford City, Pennsylvania. These high school-aged students are given job shadowing and volunteering opportunities.

The Gibson family has a long history of entertainers. With many years of performing shows in the Pittsburgh region of western Pennsylvania.
The students can get hands-on experience with audio and video technology. We also have a mobile operation that takes the classroom out in the field. During the summer months, we provide entertainment for community festivals and events. We load up our vehicles with sound and lighting. Then give some of the new singers a chance to show the world what they can do. We also provide Foam & Bubble parties as one of our fundraising activities.

I am 57 years old and been following my musical vision all of my life. I started playing piano long before my first piano lessons at the age of 9. My teacher would scold me for not reading the notes and following my own beat. At the age of 15, I started a top 40 music band. We recorded my first original record in a studio when I was 17. I have always seen the world with the wonder of a child. I have lived each day of this life as a new adventure. In 2011 I opened an under 21 venue. After learning of the many hardships that the youths were facing. I knew that something had to be done. In 2015 I reinvented our venue as the Radioactive Events Center and became a 501(c)3 nonprofit. Our mission is to provide a platform for artists and musicians to learn, grow, and showcase their talents.
One day I was getting things ready for a show at our venue and as I was setting up the lighting. A little girl walked into the room. She was maybe 7 years old. The room was glowing under the black lights and green laser beams danced in
