While you are all stuck inside binge watching the internet, here are a few suggestions of local up and coming performers who are stranded just like you and are able to perform in public. This is what they are doing to find you, the audience, and hopefully keep everything together. I will be updating this list as we go, so keep checking back!

Episode 001 – Take a Hike
On this Episode I am joined by Kevin and Dan (trail names Bubuh and Bobo), who recently thruhiked the Appalachian Trail over 2200 (ish) miles from Georgia to Maine in 2017.
Episode 002 – The Rideshare App
Your host Adam R Murphy is back with another episode of Adults Downstairs Drinking. We are talking about Ride Sharing Apps with 2 New England Drivers and Musical Guest Jamie MacGuire of Salem Sound. Featuring a new single from Salem Sound titled “Fuller Down”.
Musical Guest Jamie MacGuire of Salem Sound
On this episode of Adults Downstairs Drinking I am joined in the Studio by my fellow Uber/Lyft Driver Keith (who’s last name we don’t mention), and Musical Guest/Uber Rider Jamie MacGuire of Salem Sound. Keith and I are both side hustlers and we discuss all the questions we are constantly asked as rideshare drivers while Jamie keeps asking questions we don’t know the answers to. Enjoy.
The first episode of my new podcast ADD360 (Episode 001 – Take a Hike) is now available on Soundcloud.
I am joined in Studio by @danny_field_1021 and @lundquist_kevin to discuss their 2200 Mile Northbound Thru Hike on the Appalachian Trail. It took them just under 6 months to hike from Springer Mountain in Georgia to Mount Katahdin in Maine, and they talk about all the ups and downs of their journey.
