It’s taken a bit, but we’re getting there – live music is returning to the area, and we can sit down and enjoy it in-person. Carefully. Distantly.
It’s a start!
We held our first post-COVID, live and in-person event on Sunday afternoon. We’d had that date booked with Story Hill FireHouse about six months ago – well before anyone knew anything about a pandemic taking hold of our world.
I’d also had an event booked with my good friend and amazing singer Marcya Daneille that couldn’t happen, as a result of State Parks restricting organized activities. So, as opposed to having her out at Pike Lake State Park, we tried out some jazzed-up pop music at the firehouse over the weekend. It was delightful to work with bassist Ben Titus – man, he even performed some solo music on bass/bass and vocals… that was a treat!
The cabaret-style seating was spread far enough out where there was plenty of distance between people. It was a beautiful Father’s Day, so garage doors were open – the live music even attracted a local bicyclist to stop in and attend (more pictures are on our social media). The performers felt safe, sounded fantastic, and the audience thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Our re-entry to in-person events has been made, and we will continue to explore our options.
This weekend we will be partnering with the Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Arts in hosting outdoor Colonnade Cafe events in – more info on our main page. Distancing will be practiced as the music will be performed outside – and will carry into the Mitchell Park area of Brookfield. We are looking forward to another great weekend of attempting in-person, live music experiences in the post-COVID era world. Will you consider joining us?
