Live music is starting to make a comeback in the Valley and we have a few spots for you to check out this weekend. Most of what you will see here will be “weather permitting” due to outdoor seating only in most places. Some places suggest making a reservation while others will seat you first-come, first-served. Please remember to keep public safety in mind, limit your stay so others have the chance to dine and enjoy the music and, please, remember to tip your servers and the musicians who could all use your help after 3 months of inactivity.
Let’s start with an open mic night. If you are looking to shake off the cobwebs and play a few songs in front of a live audience, Phil Stahl has you covered. He will be hosting an outdoor open mic night at the Bowers Hotel on Saturday, June 13 at 6pm. You are welcome to bring your own microphone but, Phil will have everything necessary to clean and sanitize his mics after each use. There will be a parking lot wait staff for all of your food and beverage needs so, please support the hotel and their staff. The music will also be broadcast to the FM radio in your car if you prefer to listen from there.
TONIGHT – There are two shows, both at 4pm. First, Kendal Conrad will be outside at the Hamilton Kitchen and Bar. Outdoor seating is limited so, you may want to make a reservation. The Mark and Ralph Acoustic Duo will be performing in the South Mall parking lot for Food Truck Thursday. There will be 6-10 food trucks on hand as well as beverage tents. It is recommended you bring lawn chairs if you plan on staying and eating. We will be at the Cave Brewing Company tent and will also be live on Facebook.
FRIDAY – Z Solo will kick things off at Olde Homestead Golf Club on the patio at 3pm. Mike Metzger will be at the Downtown Allentown Market at 4pm. The Steve Brosky Duo is at the Shanty on 19th at 6pm and Kendal Conrad will be performing at Pocono Brewery at 7pm.
SATURDAY – Doug Kaetz has two shows lined up for you. He will be at Tolino Vineyards at 2pm and at Blue Ridge Estates Winery at 6pm. Kendal Conrad will be with comedian Chris Roach at Soul Joel’s Comedy Club at 6pm and, also at 6pm, Z Solo will be at the Pocono Brewery. Small Axe will be on the deck at the Funhouse Southside at 8pm and Mosey Beat will be at Porter’s Pub at 10pm.
SUNDAY – Mark and Ralph will be on the stage at Jake’s Flea Market from 9:30-11:30 am.
That’s all I have for you this week. I’m sure there is more going on so, check with your favorite band or artist if you don’t see them here. As we get back to bringing you the “HOT SPOTS” each week, I’m sure more of you will let me know what you have going on. It’s easy to have your shows promoted here and we are eager to do that for you. You can use the “contact us” form on the website, use Facebook messenger or email your schedule to firstname.lastname@example.org. Get out and support live music and the bars, restaurants and other venues that make it happen each week.
