Last week we had 100 live shows in and around the Lehigh Valley. If we’re not there this week, we’re pretty darn close. In fact, there may be more this week. Of course, without your support, none of this matters. Let’s do all we can to help keep the local music scene growing. Pick a show to attend this week. Support a venue that hosts live music. If you are not yet ready to attend a show in person, support someone who is doing one on line and order take out or delivery from one of the venues listed here. We can all use the support and, we can all support each other.
If you would like to see your events advertised here every week, simply let me know your schedule by Wednesday evening. Whether your event is live and in person or on-line, you can promote it here. Use the “contact us” form on the website, Facebook messenger or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please take a minute to like and share us on Facebook.

It’s another busy week on the local music scene. I imagine it will be busier in two weeks when the restrictions are eased even more. Warm weather is right around the corner so, look for more outdoor dining and music in the area soon. As always, thank you for supporting the local music scene. Go out and see some live music this week !
