HONEST TRAV’S VIRTUAL DIVE BAR

As a result of bars being shuttered, musicians have lost their main source of income. A mysterious person named “Honest Trav” came up with a virtual bar so musicians from all over the country could continue performing live through Facebook and put out the virtual tip jar to sing for their supper. In just one-month, Honest Trav’s has already reached over 53K members aged 21 and over and allowed locals to support their favorite singer/songwriters like Sarah Ayers, and those hailing from Iowa like Jenny Lynn Stacy and The Dirty Roosters. Continue supporting your favorite musicians and take in some new live concerts from a far through Honest Trav’s Virtual Dive Bar.
