Restaurants can seat 75% capacity indoors and 100% outdoors. having said that, more music returns to stages and venues around the region.


When We Say We Need Your Support, We Mean Take Out Your Wallet

Free Music Is Not Free

“Get ready for this rant…people always screaming SUPPORT LOCAL!! Well let me first start off letting folks know, The Market Street Pub is a local business. I’ve been made aware of snap bashing us for charging a $7 cover. This is what I have to say about that: Our business has been closed for nearly a full year and for those of you that don’t understand, that doesn’t mean the bills stopped coming in. In fact, after we calculated it, I have spent well over $18000 keeping this business alive with nothing coming in and no assistance at all while other businesses in Washington operated as usual. Live entertainment is not free. We don’t keep one dang dollar from your cover charge that goes straight to whoever is playing. We don’t have food sales to fall back on, we basically have 4 hours of business to make enough money to pay our employees and pay the bills and again the door charge pays the bands. If it’s too much to ask for your support and not to bash a business trying their hardest not to fold, by all means go somewhere else but don’t let me hear you trash-talking us one minute and Support Local coming out of your mouth the next. We have done our very best trying to make the Market Street Pub a nice place for ALL to come and be able to enjoy themselves. For those of you that do support us, we appreciate your business and we will continue to treat every one of you like family. To the haters; until you know what it takes financially to run a business and how hurtful your word is, keep your mouth shut and keep to stepping. We are doing nothing wrong but trying to keep a business we put our blood sweat and tears into building it. Have a nice day. Rant OVER!!!” ~Connie Bland Langley, owner of The Market Street Pub

This story is repeated around the region, state and globe. If you had a favorite watering hole, your local dive bar that simply served drinks, good cheer and music; they have been closed down, shut up, and have sat in silence for 50 long weeks here in North Carolina. For the venues that survived the two weeks to slow the spread and 48 weeks to kill a business, the struggle is not behind these business owners. In fact, many of them went into debt to make it through to the day they were allowed to open. I know some that became so conditioned by the closure, they did not expect to open when the Governor announced the lifting of several restrictions. Several were caught off guard, but pulled through thanks to the grace of others that were allowed to be open during this crazy crisis.

The pandemic has hit us all in some kind of way. We have all suffered loss, loneliness to some degree, and we are all walking out of this world crisis with new, fucked up, normals. Nothing is the same for anyone. I think we are all still trying to wrap our heads around the whole year of reconditioning our spirits. In hindsight 2020 was…We all have a story to tell, don’t we?

We were asked not to hug each other. Did you know it takes three hugs a day to know you’re alive, six to survive and a dozen to thrive? Hugs are good therapy for people.

We were asked not to worship, and give praise to the Lord. We were told not to play music or gather. All of those experiences nurture the soul. Even when you don’t like people, it’s important to surround yourself with them. None of us are made to make it through the world alone. We are all creatively designed to need each other.

If we could take out the irrational feelings and hormones and mood-altering drugs that swirl around our relationships it would be a lot easier, but I am convinced that life is not meant to be easy. After a year of this seclusion, we are all emerging from this era, that changed our lives. This has left many of us unhinged and detached in many ways. People were already damaged before the pandemic. We all had a lot on our plates, anyway it seemed, before the virus arrived. We learned quickly that when someone comes and wipes our plate off without any planning, it takes some major adjustments.

Some of our friends and family lost businesses they spent years building. It was their mission and livelihood; they were a part of our community. Their despair is a depression in our city or town. Within our communities, our neighbors have lost family and friends. Personally, I know more that have been taken out by the depression of this pandemic, than the virus itself. I also know of more people that died of other illnesses, some because they missed important treatments due to this pandemic. I see all of that as a problem that the virus left us with, that no vaccine will cure. The depth of depression and the rise of addictions is off the charts. Children who used to be able to go to school to obtain normalcy were stuck in their hell life and have been left behind. The elderly that were so dear to us were suddenly locked away and left in an incubator, for a virus we were all masking to cure. How ridiculous! Personally, I am bracing for more germ warfare.

What’s really sad, I feel like it was our own people in power today who were behind this world virus. Do your own research and stop trusting our media, and that is where I will leave that.

I find there is nothing I can do about world politics. Just like I can’t change the asshole people that exist in life, I can’t change the world either, so I pray.

I pray that we can all come together to give praise and worship. I hope we can soon find comfort in feeling hugs and seeing smiles. I also want to return to singing and dancing all around the state. Once we allow more music back into our souls, the more freedoms we will be enjoying. The best cure we have is music. Music has the ability to lift you from the trenches of hell and offer you the way and the light, as you see through the muck of your emotions. So by all means please support it and those that offer a platform for it.

Music makers and bands are also small businesses without storefronts, but most of them have families to support and bills to pay. Please go out of your way to tip these bands and entertainers working hard for your happiness. They have all missed their gig income and are happy to be back.

Attention Bands Start Working the Room ~ Maximizing Tips For Bands

Tips appreciated!

We all know that music makers and bands appreciate tips, well let me give you all a great tip for capitalizing on tip money. Many people have opted to buy into the cashless system, meaning they do not have tip money to throw in your case or bucket. To earn tips from those who are cashless I offer two options. Option one, get a square to attach to your phone and leave it in reach for happy tippers to work their magic, or option two, set up a Venmo account and put the info plainly on the tip bucket. This will help maximize your profits from those in attendance and online since most will generally tip $10 or more per transaction.


Picking Up From Where We Left Off

It’s The Tan and Sober Gentlemen For Festive Irish Fun

They are a band with a long name and long line up that can be summed up in one small word. The Tan and Sober Gentlemen are FUN!

The Tan and Sober Gentlemen are North Carolina’s answer to the music that frolics through foothills of Ireland 🇮🇪. So when St. Patrick’s Day celebrations come along, they just seem better when they are at the helm of entertaining the masses. This mountain music band is a big production of banjos and bass, mandolins and fiddles, plus guitar gumption and back beats unmatched in our area.

I have now caught several shows and each one is better than the last. The first couple of times, I caught them at area festivals. First in New Bern then in Beaufort, NC.

I actually was introduced to this band when festival promoters Grant Golden, Bailey Evans, and Terry McElhennon the founders of the former GEM Productions. This group organized Bernaroo Arts and Music Festival for years and in 2017 they brought The Tan and Sober Gentlemen to town. They offered a fiery set of Celtic chaos, as toes tapped and the band bounced in the beer garden of the Issac Taylor House. I felt like I died and went to bluegrass heaven. But this isn’t your grandfathers bluegrass, this is explosive modern day mountain music that lets you know you’re alive!

2017 Bernaroo Arts and Music Festival – Tan and Sober Gentlemen get things jumping in the Issac Taylor Beer Garden.

You’ll note, if you click the festival link, they were even more fired up when they took the stage at The Beaufort Music Festival in May 2019.

In-between the two times that I first saw the band released Veracity, a 9 song collection of their traditional and original collaborations. Though it offers a good example of the band’s stylings, nothing compares to seeing this band live. So if you ever get the chance be sure to check them out. They have an event calendar on their website: Tan and Sober Events.

I learned a couple of weeks ago, that perhaps the best time to see this group might certainly be around St. Patrick’s Day. With their celebratory regressive folk and Celtic punk grass offerings, they are just something to see. Their show at The Angry Ginger did not disappoint. The band brought their fueled-up folk music and rocked the Garden for fans and friends alike. It was nice to see a complete turnaround from last year’s sad turn of events.


Making Music The Rounds In New Bern NC

Joe Baes Project Shamrocks the BrU Joint

The Joe Baes Project rocked us into the weekend last Friday night, when the trio rolled into into BrÜtopia. As usual the band was well supported by the locals that love them. I have been watching Baes and his many music projects since the early days of this blog. I met him one afternoon in 2016, when he was jamming on the deck at the Double Tree.

NCMZ.LIVE File Photo Joe Baes Project at The DoubleTree, circa July 10, 2016

Over the years that I have been watching the band, there was one major change, which was the move of band-mate and co-founder Mike Galloway in 2018. The bass player relocated to Colorado.

Following their show, I reached out to the namesake of the project to see what is new with Joe Baes. Catching up is a bit overdue, as it was a few months ago the Baes retired from working on the base. The retired Marine retired from his civilian job several weeks ago.

I asked Joe what was new and how retirement was treating him, he said, “I am kind of getting used to retirement, but we have been pretty busy with trips and gigs since I retired, so I haven’t had a lot of down time yet. It is nice waking up most mornings and just enjoying coffee with my wife though.”

As for keeping busy, Joe said, “I have been busy with my music and learning new songs. I have an album worth of music ready, but COVID put our recording on hold. We plan to start recording very soon with a friend of mine in Greenville.”

I wondered how he navigated the virus and dealt with the pandemic to which he replied, “The pandemic gave me more time at home, my job allowed me to telework and that freed up 10 hours of travel time a week. I was able to concentrate on practicing the guitar, taking online guitar courses, and working on my acoustic show with a looper. We have new material and have performed some of those songs live, but have not recorded any yet.” He also mentioned, “There are a couple of live recordings of our song “I Want to Be” out there (you have recorded it a couple of times) and we have performed a couple of others that will be on the new CD (no release date yet). I like to get a feel of the live sound and response from people before we record it.”

As for the road ahead, Joe Baes and the band, Jonathan Toler (drums and vocals) and Dan Taylor (bass) are just about booked for the year. All of the band dates and my solo or duo gigs are on the website (www.joebaes.rocks).

Beyond that Baes tells me, “I will be performing a number of dates at Bake Bottle and Brew in Swansboro with Brian Tessier on percussion. There are also a couple of shows with Tanner Jones on bass guitar and Brian Tessier on drums.”

I asked how far out the band is willing to travel and Baes said, “We usually perform close to home, so about 50 miles is our limit. Unless the Carolina Hurricanes ask us to play at one of their outdoor events, then we will drive to Raliegh!”

I also inquired as to how people can book the band for their event, Baes told me, “People interested in having us perform at their establishment, party or community event can find me on Facebook “The Joe Baes Project”, or through my website www.joebaes.rocks. My email is joezmuzic@yahoo.com.”

As for the immediate future here are some dates to mark on the calendar, “April 17th at 34 Degrees North in Cape Carteret, this will be our first time at this venue and it will be great! April 30th at BrUtopia in James City. This venue has hosted Joe Baes Project since it first opened. We have been their Halloween band every year! May 28th we will rock the stage at Tap That Craft Beer & Wine Bar in New Bern. Don’t forget to check the calendar for all upcoming shows.”


Cooper Greer Brings His New Band to New Bern

Last weekend was the first time I got to meet and hear Copper Greer. He rolled into town with his band to kick off the weekend into gear, by rocking the deck at Blackbeard’s Triple Play Restaurant on Front St, New Bern, NC last Friday, March 19.

This young slinger is quite talented and fun to watch. I know he recently released new music, so I reached out to the singer-songwriter to learn more about him and find out what’s ahead. I first asked if he was born and raised in NC and he told me, “I was born in the Ozarks in Missouri, moved here as a kid.” As for how he came to know and embrace music, Greer said, “My great-grandma and my dad and uncle all played guitar, so I’ve been around music my whole life.” I asked him if he turned to country music for a career choice or if it was the genre he loved most. He said, “When I first learned to play guitar I was really into rock music, but I’ve always loved country music and it fits my voice better. I still try to add some rock elements into my music/shows though.” I can back that up having been witness to his live performance. He definitely has a rocking edge.

With regard to the show I caught, that night featured Shawn Mitchell on bass and it came to my attention that it was his first gig with these guys. When I mentioned that in my chat, he responded, ” It was Shawn’s debut with us which he did great. The other guys are from the Greenville area, the guitar player Greg Franklin has been with me from day one.” Also holding down the back-beat was drummer, Milton Long.

As for the near future and road ahead, Greer tells us, “I am currently recording my debut EP, as well as another single and another music video. The future is a wild place, so I try not to make to many assumptions about where it leads but ultimately I plan to push this thing as far as I possibly can.” That’s probably a good plan, he is young and has plenty of time for life to be serious.

I noted at the show this crooner has the ladies lined up and loving him. I would bet that in the right setting he’d have them lined up from the ages of 16 to 60 drooling and dancing. He giggled at the thought and confessed, “Lol, it’s definitely a good feeling sometimes. It’s tough on relationships but that’s just part of the job.”

With regard to contacting this talented act to get him on your stage or calendar of events, he tells me, “Venues can contact me on FB, Instagram, Email coopergreerbooking@gmail.com or through a link on my website. Cooper Greer. When you check out his website be sure to click on the new music. Greer stays busy from his hometown to the coast, sharing songs and crooning crowds, so keep a look out here for his show dates.
