Al Fresco Music @Helms Welcomes Tom’s Rag Tag Band
September 18 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
On Friday and Saturday evenings from 5:00 to 7:00 PM during the month of September, please join us for a little Al Fresco Music on Helms Avenue. While we are not encouraging large gatherings, we hope you stop by, grab a table at one of our restaurants, and enjoy some socially-distanced dinner music with a selection of talented, local musicians.
Tom’s Rag Tag Band came out of a bunch of professional musician friends who just wanted to do some playing during the Pandemic of 2020. So they got together in a backyard, put on their masks, took out their instruments and started playing some classic and original tunes. Pretty soon neighbors starting coming to listen with chairs, masks, dogs and drinks. Now it’s a regular thing!
