Rock on to Live Music in Claremont and Surrounding Areas

Updated: Mar 9, 2023

Let’s face it, the past 16 months have been... rough to say the least. I can honestly say what I’ve missed the most is experiencing live music. There’s something to be said about passion coming through someone’s voice or instrument while feeling the energy of a crowd. What can I say other than music is (or can be) a direct line to the heart.

The great news is live music is picking up as business continue to open up for indoor/outdoor dining.

So, where can you hear live music in Claremont and the surrounding areas? That’s what this blog is for! Thanks to Brian Luft at Claremont Music Scene, together we compiled a list of places you can catch live tunes.
