To aid local musicians and small businesses hit the hardest during the coronavirus pandemic, OC Board of Supervisors Second District Supervisor Katrina Foley has partnered with area artists and venues to welcome back live music with the OC Live Concert Series.
The events will take place May 10-15 at multiple venues, including Dick Church’s Restaurant and Strut Bar & Club in Costa Mesa, with the weekend concerts taking over The Dunes in Newport Beach.
“I’ve long been an advocate for the arts in Orange County and during COVID I watched as many of our musicians and our arts venues and artists that depend on fundraisers for their revenue just get hammered,” Foley said during a recent phone interview.
When the county received money from the American Rescue Plan last year, each supervisor was allocated $1 million to support the arts in their district. Foley said she spent a portion offering grants to local dance schools, but also wanted to help the struggling musicians and smaller bars and restaurants that foster Orange County’s robust music scene.
