We plan to do so in a safe and socially distanced way in accordance with NYS COVID 19 protocols at each venue.
In addition to the venues throughout the Rivertowns provided by local residents in our communities, we will also be offering a socially distanced curated open mic stage from 6 – 9 pm in front of the Hastings-on-Hudson VFW.
