What a difference a summer makes!  Could you have imagined at any point in your lifetime that live events would have been canceled for an entire year?  I say um…NO!  But that is exactly what we were forced to deal with since March of last year. Selfishly, it was horrible.  But even more so for the venues, musicians, and event staff.

Many venues throughout the country were faced with closing for good.  The National Independent Venue Association stepped up with a Save Our Stages campaign to try and get congress to help with funding.  Bands were furloughing members of their own entourage.  We also learned a new term called “gig worker” in the world of unemployment insurance. It’s nice to know with these venues opening back up, their dedicated hard-working staff will be back on the job.
