FERNDALE, Calif. (KIEM)- Musicians have had a hard time during this pandemic, but now that COVID-19 restrictions have eased up a bit Roger Vernon, a local musician, decided to hold a free concert at the Fireman’s Park in Ferndale to give local musicians a chance to play for a live crowd.

“This is the best introduction I think so far for this band and for the musicians,” said Garrett Lansing, the bass player for The Remedy. “It’s beautiful scenery, great people, and this is just what we love to do and we are happy to be here.”

People from all over Humboldt brought their chairs to bask in the sounds of about 13 local musicians, including White Hat and The Remedy, and enjoyed a beautiful day outside with their families.

Even though most of these musicians have been able to play for smaller crowds virtually…nothing beats having the feedback from a live crowd.

“This is great, this is great. You know, we love playing in front of a crowd,” said Vernon “You get feedback from the people listening to the music that you are playing and it’s better than playing your living room.”  

Vernon hopes that this event doesn’t end here but hopes he can gather local musicians to do events like these more often.
