Live Music in St. Louis – Hear This Week: November 11-16
You hear a lot about other towns (looking at you, Chicago, Nashville, Austin) who boast about a lot of music – none of them can touch St. Louis, or even these Bands of Notes:
Live Music in St. Louis

What the Locals Know: Long time local musician singer/songwriter Gary Schoenberger has been creating great music for decades. He and his wife did the local music-loving community a favor when they bought the Webster Groves Garden Café, making it a live music mecca. Gary is his taking his own stage Friday, November 15, from 7 to 9 pm to play a few covers, but mostly from his own marvelous song catalog.
Music Note of Note: The Focal Point began as a coffee house in 1975. It was founded by Bill and Janet Boyer, who at the time owned the popular local music store Music Folk. Both musicians and fans of traditional American folk music, they were dedicated to supporting local and national artists of the genre. In 2000, they moved to a 1920s vintage building in Maplewood, and today it’s one of St. Louis’s finest listening rooms.
