While you may not be able to cozy up next to the fire at Stake, you can still enjoy music with Matt Heinecke every Wednesday from the comfort of your home. In fact, you can hear live music every day of the week, thanks to our talented and dedicated local musicians. Ron Wheeler, Jerry Gontang, Matt Heinecke, Fish and the Seaweeds, Phil Lean, and Michael Gonzales (Gonzo) are all offering weekly virtual live music concerts through platforms such as Facebook Live and Zoom.
