Weekly Music Lineup – 4/8/21

Things are definitely starting to look a little more “normal” than they have in a while. Bars and restaurants are operating closer to capacity than they have in over a year and we are cautiously optimistic that we’re heading in the right direction. The music scene is as alive as it has been since the pandemic arrived and the hope is it will continue to grow. With that being said, it’s still important to continue to keep everyone’s health and safety in mind while getting out and enjoying the music and the great venues that have kept the scene alive.

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 lvvoicesofthevalley@gmail.com. Please take a minute to like and share us on Facebook. Here’s this weeks’ lineup.
