We have another jam-packed weekend of music in and around the Lehigh Valley. Unfortunately, we have to keep an eye on the sky as Mother Nature may have different ideas – yet again. For those of you hoping to get out tonight, it’s a pretty safe bet that most, if not all, of the shows listed will end up being cancelled. There are several venues that have already decided to close and I deleted those shows before publishing. Friday could be hit or miss but, hopefully, the rest week will be a little more favorable. On line shows may be the way to go and, we do have a few for you. If you do plan on heading out, please remember, stay safe, follow the guidelines and masks up.
If you don’t see your events listed here and would like to be included, it’s easy and it’s free. Whether you are a local musician/band or a venue owner/manager, you can send your schedule to me by Wednesday evening to be included in the weekly lineups. Simply use the “contact us” form on the website, Facebook messenger at https://www.facebook.com/lvvoicesofthevalley or email me at email@example.com..I do include the Poconos, Carbon & Berks Counties and New Jersey as well as the Lehigh Valley.

There you have it – your week in music at a glance. Again, just a gentle reminder to follow all health and safety guidelines when attending live performances and/or dining out. If you plan on attending an open mic night, please bring your own instrument and microphone. Keep an eye on the weather and check with the venues before deciding where to go. Please continue do what you can to help support the local musicians and the venues that help keep the music scene in and around the Valley alive and well.
