It's good news for music fans and musicians alike as live shows are being booked again here in the Driftless Region. We encourage you to see where Momentous Records artists will be playing on their artist websites and social feeds.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Momentous Records worked closely with our artists to find new ways to bring their music to the world. Below are videos of two of those livestream concerts. Like they said in those classic old long-distance commercials, it was "the next best thing to being there."
