Virtual Concert Supports Unity And Idled Musicians

The popular band Tallahassee Nights Live staged an online performance on June 13 with the twin goals of bringing people together and bringing financial support to other musicians left gig-less by the pandemic.

One of North Florida's hottest bands was back on stage over the weekend. But the performance of Tallahassee Nights Live was as much virtual as actual.
The happening was in part a fund-raiser for the Tallahassee Live Music Community Charity Group headed by Alicia Kilman.

"Tallahassee Nights Live is going to do a full concert for us and have some special, never-before seen debut," she exclaimed as the band prepared to take the stage. The Warrior on the River Club was the scene for the online streaming event, said group founder Darius "Doc" Baker.

"We've done a few live streams, but tonight is going to be special," he said.

Special, reiterated Music Director "C" Walden, because with the pandemic and political divisions raging, people can use music as an uplifting and unifying force.

"It's something that can heal; it's something that can bring people together and we just want to be positive and do the right things in the community and do our part."
