JazzBluesView: Shoveling Against the Tide

Jazz/BluesView: Shoveling Against the Tide
By Eric Benson

Well folks we made it to the red zone, Yippie!. This meaning we are having a smaller number of Covid cases in our county and we have a green light to opening ibusiness in our city. This is a good thing to get us back to normalcy. For music this means restaurants can have 25% of capacity inside or continue to have events outside. For Café Urbano we will be doing smaller events inside and larger ones outside. It is getting cold but I won’t complain, a friend who complained of no gigs where he lives. I said well just take it outside, he retorted that in Nebraska in outlying areas there is 20 feet of snow!

In the meantime we got to keep er rollin! Doing music indoors and outdoors at some venues so come on down peeps. Music venues offering music outdoors: Bauers Downtown, Ralston’s Goat, Café Urbano and others. Please support the Restaurants and businesses that are open and need your support. Let keep things rolling and keep our business, and ourselves healthy.

Please take time to take care of yourself and others as times are tough but they will get better. but we need to take care of ourselves and each other right now. We will weather this too, but in the meantime, stay safe but live your life to the fullest.

A lot of business are having outside seating to accommodate folks and keep everyone safe. Café Urbano is no different we will be doing shows outside to keep everyone safe, and the music going. We need all our fans to come out in this difficult time to get on with life as ah, unusual!.
