2020! Everybody has a hard luck story. Fire, flood and pestilence! In the music industry we’ve had shows cancelled due to bushfires, months of nothing due to Covid 19 restrictions. “Too much of nothing.., can cause one man to sleep on nails.., cause others to eat fire.” Sometimes,”… it just makes a fella mean!” Some bright folks have worked the internet to their advantage, bringing ‘live streamed’ music directly to your tablet or phone.
