The Plaza Live will be continuing the outdoors "Front Porch Concerts" show series well into 2021, with a packed lineup of local heavyweights.

Co-curated by the indefatigable Jessica Pawli of Southern Fried Sunday fame and Joanne Grant from the Plaza's Board of Directors, a deep well of local talent will be headlining these Thursday "weekend warm-up" gigs, kicking off with the Brown Bag Brass Band in mid-January.



The weekly schedule confirmed so far includes:

Jan. 14: Brown Bag Brass Band
Jan. 21: Big Ron Betts Trio
Jan. 28: Beemo
Feb. 4: Bloody Jug Band
Feb. 11: Kaleigh Baker & Someday Honey
Feb. 18: Best In Brass: New Orleans Brass Band
Feb. 25: Midnight Ramblers
Mar 4: Cat Ridgeway & the Tourists
Mar 11: Oak Hill Drifters
Mar 18: Jordan Foley & the Wheelhouse
Mar 25: Beth McKee & Her Funky Time Band



Food trucks will be on site for these shows, and the Plaza Bar will be open for business.

'Front Porch Concert' tickets are sold in groups — $80 for a table that accommodates up to 4 people — or general admission for $15. Tickets are available now.
