March News

Greetings All, 

We hope this message finds you safe and well.

 

*** If you haven’t heard already, all restaurants are closed other than take out. So…. no open mics for the time being. We’ll let you know when we start back up again. 

Our Friend Chris Steele has initiated the Virtual Necessity Open Mic Page!!! From here you can record a song, send it to youtube, and then send the link to their FB message. They will post it on the page. Great idea, Chris. Thank you!

Here’s the link:

***Another idea…

As a charity venture, ask your local senior home and the like, if you can play music in their parking lot or such (busking style), where residents can crack their windows or be on the balcony to listen and enjoy.

 

*** Be safe, all. Be calm. Write and Play Music. Care for your family friends, and neighbors. See you soon.
