“We are ramping up hard,” Brian Johnson, Dayton Masonic Live’s production and promotions director, said. “This year we are going to throw 30 to 40 shows and my three-year goal is to throw 100 shows a year.” Originally referred to as the Dayton Masonic Temple, the historical eight-story structure constructed in Grecian architecture style, opened in 1928.
