"Quarantine times—local musicians make do"

What do you do when your income stream comes to a grinding halt, but you have all kinds of time on your hands? Well, if you're a musician, you do what musicians do all the time—proverbial woodshedding, which in the case of New Times Music Award winner Dante Marsh and The Vibe Setters was already in the works. They've been preparing their video entry for NPR's 2020 Tiny Desk Concert, which you can view on YouTube.

The video for their song "Above Me" is pretty simple—the four band members are set up in a sunroom with green hills and the ocean in the background, and they're playing the song live. It's pretty amazing, and it'd be so cool to see a local band get exposure from NPR's excellent series.

"We finished and released the video for NPR's Tiny Desk," executive producer Ryan Orr explained, "and now we're planning on going into the studio with Dante and the band in the coming weeks and we're really excited about the future of this band."
