***Keeping performers and limited crew safe is the #1 priority and we have a series of ground rules that require strict adherence as prerequisite to proceeding with each of these performances. We limit the people in the building to the absolute minimum of essential workforce only and have measures in place to promote social distancing before, during, and after performances. Self-reporting and temperature taking is a mandatory request to ensure nobody is symptomatic. Musicians are encouraged to wear masks while not performing. We do sanitize equipment after each performance, and do not allow sharing of microphones. Hand sanitizer is available throughout and of course we encourage hand hygiene, while discouraging any/all contact between individuals, face touching, etc and prohibiting close contact between crew and performers.***

It was with a heavy heart that we all had to cancel our shows, and we hope that NVCS brings fans some much needed entertainment during these challenging times!
Thanks for your continued support, stay safe and healthy out there, and we look forward to seeing you at this or another stream in the Nectar Virtual Concert Series, and of course at the next live concert when we reopen!

“Last Friday night after Hit Explosion’s first set, a palpable cloud of steam rose off the body crush that packed not only the dance floor but every other nook and cranny of the brick-walled basement. They clearly love this music and their audience.”
