Kenosha’s live music scene is not only impressive, it’s resilient.

Determined to bring forth the healing power that only sweet tunes can do, local musicians and venues are working overtime to bring back what so many of us have been missing since almost the turn of the New Year: Live music.

This weekend’s lineup included a much-anticipated Saturday show from powerhouse vocalist Betsy Ade & The Well-Known Strangers at 58 Below. The act was cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns, according to the band.

All fans who purchased tickets will receive a full refund.

Despite the cancellation — a major bummer for local music fans — there are several acts where the show still goes on. Here is a look at this weekend’s lineup:
