The Plaza Live’s Front Porch Series has been one of the city’s most pandemic-responsive live music experiences. And now, thanks to the experienced local curatorship of Joanne Grant and Southern Fried Sunday's Jessica Pawli, its next salvo of dates is steadier, more robust and distinctly more studded with homegrown stars.

Beginning this Thursday, Jan. 14, with the booming NOLA party vibes of the Brown Bag Brass Band and running every Thursday through March, the outdoor stage will showcase a strong, Orlando-centric procession that includes the Big Ron Betts Trio, Beemo, Bloody Jug Band, Kaleigh Baker & Someday Honey, Best in Brass: New Orleans Brass Band, Midnight Ramblers, Cat Ridgeway and the Tourists, Oak Hill Drifters, Jordan Foley and the Wheelhouse and Beth McKee and Her Funky Time Band.

Thursday night's outdoor show at the Plaza Live begins at 6 p.m. and tickets are still available. Da Flava Factory food truck will also be on the premises.

Remember: If you go out, respect everyone’s distance, for all our sakes.
