One of the things that we miss most during these challenging times is live music, with the Midland area having some phenomenally talented artists and musicians.

But what we have loved seeing is that some of our favorite artists and musicians have not let the challenges of COVID-19 stop them and have found innovative ways to continue to treat us to their amazing music.

Here are four local artists that you need to follow.

Wolf 359 Band

Wolf 359 band from Midland has played together for over 15 years. Naturally, the challenges of recent times have resulted in them unable to play in live venues.

However, they took it upon themselves to be one of the first bands to use Facebook Live in the area to broadcast performances and utilize Venmo to offset some of their losses from not playing live venues.

Find them on Facebook Page here.

Part Bee

Part Bee is an excellent country-rock trio also from Midland with the head of the band Tom Terrett playing in this area well over 30 years.

His band partnered up with local radio stations to broadcast live concerts from his patio. Great job, guys!!

West Texas Funk

West Texas Funk, the Permian Basins premier funk band, took it upon themselves right after the quarantine to rent a trailer and travel from neighborhood to neighborhood playing music and uplifting people’s spirits during this trying time.

Brother Z band

Brother Z band from Midland specializing in 70’s-90’s top 40 hits. They had the trouble of getting all the band members together to do any performances because of COVID.

To reach his audience, he decided to do acoustic shows using only a guitar and conga, and it’s incredible.

All these musicians found ways not only to continue practicing their craft but used technology to overcome challenges.

Please be sure to support them, both now and when live venues re-open their doors.

With all our love, Stay safe.

From Dr. Sally and the entire staff at All About Hearing.

Do you know somebody that needs to see this? Why not share it?

Dr. Sally Miranda

Dr. Miranda was the first doctor of audiology to qualify in Midland, TX, in 2000. She started her career working for a busy ENT practice but soon realized the pressurized environment wasn’t suitable for her, as she felt unable to give her patients the full care and attention she believed they deserved. In 2007, she founded All About Hearing. Since then, Dr. Miranda and her team have helped thousands of local people – from children to grandparents – to better care for their hearing health, through their “family approach” to patient care.
