There’s something about live music. The way you can feel the vibrations from the bass in your chest and the drums beats thumping in your chest. Or maybe you like softer sounds, like when piano keys seem to make your worries disappear or soft ballads make you want to hold hands with your spouse and fall in love all over again. Music brings us together, makes us want to dance and laugh and cry – and it’s even better live. Check out some of these spots in town to hear talented local musicians perform.
