HomeStage

You can't go to concerts because the normal music venues are closed. You have to stay home, as do the artists. So instead, they'll play from their homes so you can enjoy a show in yours. Welcome to HomeStage.

What a voice Cinnamon Jones has. She's been all over the world, and we're lucky to have her talents here in Rochester. She's on HomeStage to thank the workers who are on the front lines of the pandemic and has a song that, she says, is "pretty raw."

Anonymous Willpower can be described as New Orleans punk or alternative blues. No matter how they're described, we think you'll enjoy their HomeStage performance!
