Check out the Dapper Gents Duo at RiRa tonight

I’d like to issue a virtual high five to each and every one of you for making it all the way to Wednesday. It is never easy getting acclimated to real life after a long weekend, so I just wanted you guys to know how proud I am of y’all. That being said, you should probably treat yourself to some live, local music this happy Hump Day. If you’re looking to get out there and do it to it, here’s where the haps are for the evening, including Pete Witham at Lenny’s at Hawkes Plaza, Don Campbell at The Frog and Turtle, Tom Porter & Friends at Frontier, Irish Night at Blue, and more!


Check out a free show down at Champions tonight as roots rocker Travis James Humphrey plays a free show starting up at 10pm.


Tom Porter and Friends bring some jazz sounds to Frontier as part of the venue’s Live in the Lounge series. Porter and company will be performing a mixture of a old and new music, including some original material and several much-loved standards beginning at 7:30 during this free, all ages show.


Hurdle the hump with some acoustic roots tunes tonight as David Beam & Friends return to Andy’s Old Port Pub. This talented troupe will begin playing right around 7.

Pete will be joined by his regular rotating cast of musically inclined characters as this free, all-ages performance gets underway right around 7 o’clock.
