Live from the Sound Lounge!

Live music. One of the most enjoyable human experiences and one we’ve missed so much during this long and strange year.

Over the pasts few months, we’ve been be joined by area musicians, who have generously shared their talents with our community. These shows, LIVE from the Sound Lounge, have allowed our friends and neighbors to enjoy free live music in the comfort and safety of their homes.

Such talent…holiday favorites, intimate originals, and classic covers. Toe tappin’ folk and groovy reggae, high energy rock and dance party pop. Even a special night of Celtic music on St. Patrick’s Day. Guitars, drums, keyboards, fiddles, and sweet harmonies! Oh, how we’ve missed you.

Find information about our upcoming Sound Lounge shows, located upstairs at Mid-West Family, at Around River City. As things begin to feel a bit more normal, we look forward to enjoying live music in person again!

If you are an musician, feel free to add your scheduled performances here! Around River City is a free community resource for local artists, businesses, entertainment and events.

Very special thanks to: Ryan Howe, Joe Cody, Greg Hall and the Wrecking Ball, TUGG, Old Soul Society, The Caminos, Amadans, Nightcap, The Weathered Pigs and Double Take.
