SOUTHERN OCEAN COUNTY, NJ — We are slowly approaching Week Three of the Quarantine and that means that it has been some time since we all have frequented our favorite local bars while enjoying live music by some amazing local talent.
On Sunday, March 29, from 12-10 p.m. tune in to each of these artists Facebook pages and look out for their "Live" video during their time slot.

Besides not getting to enjoy their music in the past couple weeks, these artists have had to put their profession and income on hold. If you feel you'd like to help them out during this time each musician is taking tips via Venmo or Paypal.
Tune in to these local musicians Facebook pages to experience their talents again from the comfort of your own home during this Coronavirus Quarantine.
Below you can find some words from each musician leading up to Sunday's performances and where you can send your tips.
"Going to be a great show!! I play from 12-1 pm. A portion of any tips from my show specifically will be donated to the The Barbara Forfar Nursing Scholarship Fund.
