Local Live Music While Everything is Closed

When all the business closed down, all of the live performances in bars and restaurants stopped. This had been my main reason, other than the library, to leave the house. It was disappointing, but understandable, when these places temporarily closed.

Friends of mine have a band, The Treacherous French (http://thetreacherousfrench.com/) . The lead singer, Charlie, has been doing live performances from his home, through Facebook Live, on Sunday afternoons.

It’s been fun to watch. Charlie takes requests from those of us who are watching. If he knows it, he’ll play it. If he doesn’t, he’ll look into learning it. Sometimes we are kinder with our requests than other times.

It’s worth liking The Treacherous French page on Facebook so that you can take a peek at what’s happening on Sunday afternoons. It’s a nice way to relax and just listen. It’s not quite the same as being there live and in person, but it’s still fun.

Below are links to the band’s albums. Check them out when you have time, please.

Also, on Monday nights, there’s an open mic through The Riptide. It’s hosted on the page, Riptide Monday Night Open Mic. Like the page and you’ll get notifications when it’s on. Because it’s on a work night, and later in the day, I don’t usually get to finish it. It’s fun to watch and the artists get an audience.

Local businesses will be back. Live music will be back. Let’s support what we can from home while we wait. I’ll be back to my regular adventures then. Until then, I will continue my mini adventures from home and quick errands.

  1. I thoroughly enjoy listening to Charlie on Sundays. He truly impressed me when he said he didn’t want payment from a virtual tip jar as some performers are doing. Instead, he suggested we buy something local or support our food banks. I look forward to hearing Charlie again soon.
