Not familiar with the Stay at Home Challenge ? It’s pretty simple, really. For each week we are without live music to enjoy, I’ve challenged you all to find a local artist you have never seen either live, in person or, on line. Tune in to their live performance on Facebook, Instagram or YouTube and share it with your friends. I have given you two each week with links to their social media so you can give them a little support as well. Starting today, I’ll make it even easier for you to check out the artists I found during the past week. Not only will I share the information here, I will also share the video I watched to the Voices of the Valley Facebook page. I still encourage you to visit their social media page and give them a “like” and a share but, you can listen right here https://www.facebook.com/lvvoicesofthevalley/.
My two for this week are Tim Harakal and Mike Metzger. Both performed live on Facebook during the past week and both put on solid performances. Please take some time to get familiar with both artists. The videos will be on Voices of the Valley shortly and both artists have a page for you to like and share. Here are the links https://www.facebook.com/TimHarakalOfficial/ and https://www.facebook.com/Mike-Metzgar-Classic-and-Modern-Acoustic-Rock-106669594103903/.
I’ll keep this challenge going until we have live music to enjoy again. When I run out of “new” artists, I’ll start sharing others I am familiar with. I’ll also be starting a “Valley Spotlight” series featuring bands and/or solo artists from around the Valley on a regular basis. Some of you may have read the first spotlight (Resting Punk Face). If you haven’t taken a moment to read it, please go back and check it out. Upcoming spotlights will feature Crooked Ways and Plum. If you have music you would like featured, feel free to drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll be happy to feature it here. Keep doing what you can to help support local music from a distance until we can get out and do it in person again.
