"Rob Hagey, founder of On The Other Side Productions is the creative genius behind Street Scene. In 2005, Rolling Stone Magazine named Street Scene as one of the top 5 music festivals in the U.S."
"Much has been said about the effect that Street Scene had on the redevelopment of the downtown area, and more specifically the Gaslamp Quarter... It was that event and its annual reoccurrence that helped to attract people and businesses back to this once forgotten area of the city. Street scene heralded the rise of a growing population looking for an urban experience... In this once sleepy Navy Town."
-Jimmy Parker, Executive Director, Gaslamp Quarter Association
