Live Music in the Lehigh Valley

Hay Blue, Live Music in the Lehigh Valley

I have done My final production of the site and the newsletter.   

Thank you all.


I thank all who have contacted me on how much you have enjoyed the production over the years.  I have now turned it all over to Jim “JAMO” Flynn:  jamo@att.net. If you have any questions or concerns please contact Jim. Also we now have Al Fink al@bandsandclubs.com and his web site http://www.BandsAndClubs.com.


Please know that they are doing things on their newsletter and web site in their own way, it is theirs and they will do their productions as they like. You may contact them and express your opinion but please understand that this is a lot of work and they have to find their own way.  In the past many of you gave me suggestions and some I did and some I did not do. I know I like the site that I can click on Friday night and see my choices in a quick and concise way too. But I have gone many places and have searched for live music and believe me nowhere else will you find these listings. 

The most important things are that you must get all band and club listings to Jim and Al and then express to them what you like and dislike about what they are doing.  Nothing can be done if they do not have the information. 




Now more than ever if you are a venue or a band it is up to you to send Jim and Al your list so that none of our music followers miss any of the live music in the area.


Thank you and good luck to all!
