BLUES TO DO CALENDAR – 2020
ALL Calendar is canceled at least thru May, probably June as well, due to the COVID-19 Virus. We will update with more ways that you can help keep live music alive, meanwhile…here is some blues prevention advice from the CDC.
Please stay home and stay safe and if you go out for essentials, wear a mask or scarf over your mouth and nose and when you get back home wash your hands before you do anything. Plus, wipe down the door handles and other commonly used handles daily with rubbing alcohol.
Wash your hands with intention or you could bring some serious blues into your life and the lives of people you love. Seattle is a live music town, let’s keep it that way!
Here are a couple of ideas of how you can help keep live music working in Seattle and the entire Northwest and worldwide for artists wanting to play in the area:
-The WA Nightlife Music Association is focused on supporting venues and is asking you to contact your Senators & Representatives at 202.224.3121 with this message: In order for nightlife to survive in WA we need the following ASAP:
– Cash assistance (not loans)
– Rent forgiveness & reductions
– Financial payments & assistance for the workforce
– Tax relief
– Insurance relief & revisions

-The Grammy people have established a COVID-19 relief fund. See grammy.com for more details on donating. They also have 60 days of online shows called Pickathon, to raise money for Musicares, helping musicians in need at this time. Here’s the Week One Schedule:
Wed, April 8 – Drive by Truckers (Mt. Hood Stage, 2017)
Thurs, April 9 – Ex Hex (Treeline Stage, 2015)
Fri, April 10 – Tyler Childers (Woods, 2019)
Sat, April 11 – Charles Bradley (Mt. Hood Stage, 2017)
Sun, April 12 – Tank & The Bangas (Woods Stage, 2017)

-Seattle governmental leadership for Film and Music, comes in the form of a Creative list of resources with updates: Click Here to see list.
-One of Seattle’s live music institutions has raised the bar for future ‘clean’ live shows and demonstrates what changes to expect all over town and the world. Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley sent out the plans they have in place to protect their audience and staff and artists for future shows. Here is their list of changes:
-Revised seating to provide more space between tables
-Plastic privacy shields throughout the venue
-‘Hands Free’ faucets and soap dispensers in restrooms
-‘Hands Free’ sanitation stations for public and staff around the venue
-Also, consider buying a gift certificate from your favorite live music venues so more live music venues can afford to plan ahead. Also, expect more changes as venues try to establish safe places for your future live music experiences.
-Meanwhile, if you see a video of a band on the Blues To Do YouTube Channel and it helps you to survive this pandemic, you can ‘TIP THE BAND’ via PayPal on our website BluesToDo.com, like you would be doing anyway, and we promise to pass it ALL along to the artist or band you select to tip so that they can try to survive as well and once again play live for us all. Tell your creator every day, words of please, thanks and wow!
