New government restrictions, business closures, December blizzards – it all seems so 2020, doesn’t it ? As a result, what we get is a very “watered-down” live music schedule for at least the next few weeks. There are several places that have cancelled live music for the remainder of the year but, continue to offer carry-out and/or delivery. If you are not planning on going out during this time, please consider supporting them whenever possible.
During the next few weeks, there will probably be an uptick in virtual performances. If you would like to be featured here, I will do my best to get the word out. As with the live events, let me know your schedule by Wednesday evening and I will be sure to promote your event here – live or virtual. Use the “contact us” form on the website, Facebook messenger or firstname.lastname@example.org. If your performance is virtual, please provide a link for viewers. And please, give our Facebook page a “like” and a share while you’re there.

While there is not nearly the number of live music events in the area as there normally would be, there are some if you are looking to get out. There are a number of venues that host live music but, are unable to do so right now. Many of them remain open for carry-out and/or delivery so, please, help support them by ordering over the weekend and beyond. And, of course, help support local, live music.
