I don’t know about you but the week just flew by for me. Today was Stephanie Harris’ first Live Music Friday. Stephanie is a big music fan who will rock out to just about anything but mostly to Neil Diamond and Wham! That’s how she rolls and we love her for that. Our featured artist is this year’s Sea Level Singer/Songwriter Festival’s Emerging Artist Contest winner, Luke Hartman. Luke is a member of the Reckless Passengers and a very talented singer/songwriter.
A pretty cool thing is happening in Norfolk this weekend. You’ve heard of pop-up restaurants but what about a pop-up city block?. That’s exactly what’s happening in downtown Norfolk Friday and Saturday nights. Better Block is an international project that rebuilds a block in the city that is in need of some TLC and with the help of volunteers, they put in some elbow grease and a lot of love to spruce it and house pop-up shops and eateries to showcase what it would look like if the area was thriving on a permanently level. This particular one will be located at Granby Street from Olney Road to Addison Street. A handful of local business’ will be on-site in their temporary weekend home including O’Connor Brewery, who will be hosting a beer garden for the thirsty adults and, of course, there will be plenty of live, local music. A lot of our LMF family will be tantalizing the crowd with their tunes including Over The Ocean, The Hunts, Skye Zentz and The Gents, Gina Dalmas and CTP and Broken Mouth Annie. It’s going to be a great event that kicks off Friday at 5p and goes into Saturday. Everything is still being finalized and added, so click on this link to stay up-to-date on everything.
Our friends at Muzik Lounge and Chichos in Chesapeake are putting on a Spring Fling Saturday night and a couple of our good friends will be in on the fun. K’bana Blaq and D*Nik will be there supplying a good amount of their funky, soul. On The Bright Side and City Voices will provide plenty of rock.

That’s it for me today. Tons of great music out there this weekend for you to hear, so get out and SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL MUSIC!
