This weekends’ lineup will tell you that the music scene in the Lehigh Valley is alive and well. There are many places listed here that deserve a lot of credit for that. Many of them are struggling to stay open during this difficult time yet, they continue to support live music every weekend. And, of course, there are the musicians who are out there performing every weekend. Without them, there would be no music scene. And where would we be without you, the readers, the music fans, the ones who are in the seats supporting the venues and the musicians. Thank you all for the support in helping keep the music scene alive and well.
If you want your shows listed here, it’s easy and it’s free. Just send me your information by Wednesday each week and I will make sure your events are promoted. You can use the “contact us” form on the website, Facebook messenger or firstname.lastname@example.org to send your info. And, don’t forget to “like” and share us on Facebook.

Pictured are just a few of the businesses that continue to support live music every weekend. Of course, there are others that do so as well. There are some newcomers to the music scene as well who recently added live music or will be in the near future like Strawberry Family Restaurant in Pennsburg or The Flying V in Bethlehem. Let’s help them grow and continue to be places musicians and music fans can go in these difficult times. As always, we ALL appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you each weekend.
