Illness…..it’s the biggest, BADDEST Blues.
Due to factors such as performing in crowded public settings, travel, sometimes lack of health insurance, etc, Covid-19 is affecting our music community at higher rates than the general population. In addition, many venues are now requiring vaccinations for entry. Care about our musicians? Wanna get the music scene jumping again? Then go get vaccinated 🙂 Fortunately, Covid-19 vaccines are now widely available
