The Coffee Garage, located at the Flying M in downtown Nampa, was one of the few places live music was performed. Locals would come to watch and enjoy live performances while they sat down and ate pastries and drank coffee. Sadly, Flying M has decided to not continue hosting live performances.
Recently, Nathan Walker, the talent room buyer at Flying M, announced that he is leaving and focusing his career on a non-profit organization called the Boise All- Ages Movement Project (B-AMP). This is an organization that dedicates itself to connecting young children through music and art. The Boise All- Ages Movement Project began last year with a goal to open a venue and arts space for all ages. Nathan Walker said, “We started [the non-profit] last year with a goal of opening and operating an all-ages venue and arts space in Boise,” Walker said. “We’ve decided to move forward on some things, so I’ve left working for Flying M.” Flying M has decided to not hire someone to take his position because it would not be financially healthy due to the unpredictability of the crowds attendance to watch them.
Therefore, it is time to say goodbye to the wonderful live music that was played at Flying M’s coffee garage. On February 24th Flying M began their last few live bands. The two that already performed were Aaron Brown and the Invasions. Flying M will have their final performance be the Season of Stranger’s on Saturday, March 11. However, Flying M will still host other events at the Flying M in downtown Nampa, like the Death Rattle [Writers] Festival, just not the larger live events that were hosted. The Flying M will still be a great place for coffee and pastry lovers.
As a result, Flying M has decided to end the performance of live bands due to Nathan Walker leaving and joining the Boise All- Ages Movement Project.
