The beat goes on in Calaveras

Electric Bob and Short Circuit rock the Bistro Espresso in Arnold at the family friendly Friday night live concert series.

Music is clearly woven into the creative lifestyle of Calaveras County in the summer months, but did you know that the love of music continues into the fall and winter at many local coffee shops, pubs and parks?

Family friendly live music is offered at the Bistro Espresso in Arnold every Friday night throughout the year at an outside family-friendly park style setting from 7 to 10 p.m. featuring local sounds from rock to blues, so put on your dancing shoes.

Bistro Espresso offers barbecue at these events beginning at 5:30 p.m. and carries a generous selection of wines and beers as well as Bistro specialty ice cream, coffee and tea drinks.

As the seasons change the music will continue to flow at the Meadowmont Center with more intimate music perfect for the indoor fireplace setting.

For those 21 and over, many towns are hopping with music for most every taste.

The Lucky Penny in Murphys offers live music Saturday evenings as well as pub dining and specialty cocktails.

On any given Friday or Saturday evening, one can take a leisurely stroll down Main Street in Murphys and take their pick of musical venues from garden settings at the Twisted Oak and the Murphys Pour House to the occasional entertainment at the Murphys Hotel.

Not to be outdone, the Hotel Ledger, on Main Street in Mokelumne Hill offers a plethora of entertainment every Friday and Saturday night ranging from open mic to live music and DJ to karaoke.

Copperopolis can also be jumping with options from duets at Tipsy Frog at Copperopolis Town Square to occasional live music at the Old Corner Saloon.

And for those of you who prefer to “be” the live music entertainment for the evening karaoke is offered throughout the county at many over 21 establishments, from The Pour House in Copperopolis to the Avery Saloon in Avery.

Live music or karaoke is often just a phone call away.
