“I don’t know a single person that doesn’t have ‘going to see live music again’ on their list of things they’re going to do as soon as life gets back to a little bit of normal,” commented Jann Arden. “But until that happens, I’m excited to announce this live stream event that I think you will absolutely love. The band and I got together in a warehouse somewhere to play some music and have some laughs, and I cannot even express how much of a joy-filled experience it was! We’ll be playing songs that I haven’t revisited for many years and even a couple of new ones. Can’t wait for you to see this!”
