Billings guitarist Alex Nauman’s live stream concert series “The Hang!” episode 8 with Tony Hammond! Here is from Alex :
“This is going to be a great way to end the series!! Good friend Tony Hammond will be here singing his heart out with those golden pipes of his. Thanks to everyone who has watched, shared, supported, and donated to the live stream series!! The support has been truly amazing. Since January this has been a great way to push through the winter with some positive energy and showcase some of the incredible talent in our area. I’ve got a lot of feedback expressing interest in future seasons and even the possibility of doing some kind of dual in person seating concert and live stream shows. The future is looking bright but we couldn’t have done it without you. Who would you like to see as guests on future episodes????”
