Virtual Shows - "Sunday After Dinner w/Bob" 

Hello Friends - Hope you are staying safe and well through these trying times.  As you probably know, all gigs, shows, and concerts everywhere have been cancelled for now.  As a way of staying connected and keeping the music going, many musicians are doing live broadcasts from home.  I did my first Facebook Live show on March 29th and a lot of people joined in to watch and gather with friends (online).  For now I'm going to keep doing it every Sunday at 7pm PST.  Find me at https://www.facebook.com/BobWadeGuitar/ for "Sunday After Dinner w/Bob".  Hope to see you there!
