Pictured: Wade Trent, performing at the Cultural Arts Centre's Performing Arts Theater for 2020 Sunset Fridays "On the Road" to You
Wade Trent is one of the many local artists impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. In a normal year, the acoustic rock musician would perform live for you during the City of St. Peters’ Sunset Fridays series at 370 Lakeside Park’s Corporate Pavilion. In 2020, due to social distancing guidelines, this isn’t possible. But, the show—and local music—still goes on …
The City of St. Peters and St. Peters TeleVision created a way to bring Sunset Fridays “On the Road” to You in 2020! The first concert featuring Wade Trent will air on SPTV at 6:30 p.m. this Friday, May 15.
The concert was recorded at the Cultural Arts Centre’s Performing Arts Theatre without an audience. Despite lacking live audience feedback, Wade felt the connection to everyone who will listen at home during his performance.
“It is different… but I feel the connection just to music, no matter how many people it reaches,” said Wade. “I know what it means to people. I know what it means for me, and just to be able to do it, to be able to share this means everything to me.”
The pre-recorded concert will stream live at SPTVnow.net, and will air at Charter Spectrum Channel 992 or AT&T U-Verse Channel 99. A Sunset Fridays “On the Road” to You concert will air each Friday at 6:30 p.m. through July 17. You also will be able to view each concert on demand at SPTVnow.net after they air.
With the City of St. Peters bringing the Sunset Fridays concerts to you, you can enjoy the experience of local music in the comfort of your home. Enjoy the music with your family after the work week, and shop St. Peters by ordering in local food to enjoy while tuning in. You can even fire up the grill and listen to the concert in your backyard while enjoying the springtime weather! Stream SPTVnow.net on your phone, tablet, computer or any device with a wifi connection.
Sunset Fridays is presented in partnership with Mid Rivers Newsmagazine and K-WULF 101.7 radio.
