Hello everyone!

The state of global affairs has implemented some challenges in all of our lives. In March of 2020, we had to put our Sunday Music and Jam Session on pause. We were all guessing that we would have been up and running our Sunday event by the fall of 2020 but such hope did not manifest. Sadly, our event at The Masque is no longer. Government restrictions were only part of the reason behind the close of The Masque. The owner and manager who was keeping the establishment open, retired! However, during said time no one was able to step in to “buy” more time in hopes that the Government restrictions would ease to allow Live Music performances and social gatherings. 


To Everyone who has and will continue to support live Music... Thank You! We will be back performing Live. Whether our current global state of government restrictions are justified or not, please remember that things are constantly changing and that this is NOT the “new normal” as some have said. Being conscious of how “out of balance” Our “world” is right now is alarming and many feel much agitation. Just like many of us did not see such “times” ever coming to fruition, maybe there is something in our future that will allow us to evolve collectively so that a healthy balance of our needs and wants have a positive out come for all. Not just more care for each other but also for the other life (natural world, nature) we share this planet with. 

Peace, Love and Music!
