2020: The Year our Music Stopped - Part 2 (A Touring Musician, AJ Pappas)
In, Part 2 of our Special Edition Series: 2020:The Year our Music Stopped, we get time to sit down with my cousin, AJ Pappas. AJ is a long-time veteran touring musician, having toured all over the world with Popa Chubby and now with Gary Hoey.
I wanted to have an episode that touches on another aspect of what we have lost, our live music experiences, but from a musician's perspective.
I think you will enjoy better understanding what the pandemic and 202 has meant to artists, bands and all of the great folks that make live music happen for us to enjoy.

2020: The Year Our Music Stopped - Part 1 (Tim Messina and Peter Ramsey)
In March of 2020, COVID-19 had escalated to National and Global Emergency Levels. Very few people are talking about how entertainment of all types stopped also, especially live music. According to NIVA, the National Independent Venue Association, there is a possibility that 80-90% of all Independent Music Venues might close for good.
This could cause a real shift in our culture as to how we experience live music for the next few months and on into the future. As this podcast centers around experiences of customers, I thought it'd good to delve into the music world with the people that put on live music, promote it, supply all the equipment and of course play live music on stage for all of us to experience.
In this 'special edition' podcast series, I was able to sit down with folks like Tim Messina, owner of Studio Labs and Events United to understand the effects from a production perspective and Peter Ramsey, President and CEO of the Palace Theater, a historical non-profit venue in Manchester, NH.
Please listen in to what I would say was a very honest and hopeful account of the impact COVID-19 has had on Live Music and Entertainment and the possible changes to our Venue Landscape for our future.
