We have waited for so many things to return now that the COVID pandemic seems to be giving us a break. One of the many things that got put on hold while we all hunkered down was live music at our favorite local bars and restaurants.

As we get farther into 2022, I believe we will see more and more things returning to our favorite bars and restaurants that were popular to do before COVID. One of the main things we have been missing is local entertainment. Over the past few years, many of us have had to put our taste for local live music on pause.

Live Music Returns to Garvan's In New Paltz, NY.

Fortunately, many of our favorite bars and restaurants are starting to invest in our Hudson Valley talent again and offering them places to play again. The most recent place to bring back living entertainment is Garvin's Gastric Pub and Maggie Mae's in New Paltz, NY.

This past Thursday, Garvan's announced through their Facebook page that they were now accepting inquiries about live talent. They also shared that they, along with their sister restaurant Maggie Mae's, would be hosting live music again. They actually had their first night this past Thursday and were looking forward to making it a regular occurrence again at the restaurant.

Most of the groups they bring in play Irish Music but on occasion, they have some other types of music. The sets are usually done acoustic and are great fun for anyone just looking to hang out after work and shake off the day. Or even enjoy an evening with friends.
