It's a celebration at the River Music Experience in downtown Davenport, Iowa.

Not only is the RME celebrating its 10th Anniversary, its also welcoming a new CEO.

Deb Sandry Powers is returning to the Quad Cities to lead the non-profit performing arts center into the next decade.

Powers worked for the Quad City Symphony as their Director of Development for eight years before working with the Dubuque Symphony as their executive director.

She sees the RME as a music incubator for the QCA for both music and educational purposes.

The RME is a non-profit so they need people to come to performances, says Powers.

She says in order to attract more bands, the RME needs more people attending current shows.

According to Powers, the RME is a launching ground for new performers as well as a place where seasoned performers can try new things and experiment with new opportunities for music.

She says the RME offers something unique for every age.

"A 15 year old and his garage band can come and perform at an open mic night right in the heart of the town. Where else can you get that?"

She says she likes that they can bring in professional musicians who inspire children through the programs that the RME offers.

The RME's 10th Anniversary Celebration is scheduled for June 12 through June 15, 2014.

More information can be found on their website.
