Live Stream Event.

Dugem Head Title

Stay Tuned! Our next live stream event will be here before you know it!


Upcoming Event.

Our events are curated showcases that highlight and promote local businesses and artists of all kinds. We capture high-quality audio and video recordings for artists and venues to use as promotional materials while providing music enthusiasts with a unique and memorable concert experience. Due to the current stay-at-home order, all events have been postponed until further notice. In the meantime, we're putting together live stream concerts to support our favorite venues and artists. All live stream concerts will be shared here on our website as well as our Facebook page. Follow us on all social platforms to stay in the loop. We hope to see you again soon.

Stay safe.

As we again head back into a shutdown, Tunes and Pollyanna are putting together another Live Stream Fundraiser. We are partnering up with local breweries Riverlands, Alter, Penrose, D and G, & 93 Octane to support the bartenders, servers, and musicians we love so much. We’ll have ESSO! playing live, bartender spotlights, and giveaways. 

During these difficult times, it’s clear that the service and entertainment industries are among those who have been hit the hardest. We’re calling on everyone to join us in helping our local bartenders, servers, and musicians that we have come to know as friends. Your donation, no matter the size, will have a direct impact on your community. On behalf of Tunes For A Minute, Pollyanna, and your bartenders and servers we thank you.

Open For Business: Martini Room Donate here: These are uncertain times, to say the least. The term “Open For Business” has a whole new meaning. Bars and restaurants have had to quickly adjust their plans in order to remain open, and though we’ve seen people come together in very encouraging ways, due to this pandemic the reality is that local businesses are suffering. Therefore, we here at Tunes For A Minute have taken it upon ourselves to pull our resources and support communities and artists as much as we can. We strive to adopt a new meaning for the term Open For Business. We may not be able to see our favorite bands in person but we can still hear them play live; we may not be able to sit down and eat and our favorite restaurants but we can still enjoy their food; we may not all be able to meet up at the bars we frequent but their spaces can still be utilized and we as a community can support that. In an effort to accomplish this we are partnering with Waveform Media to broadcast another high-quality live stream performance this time at Martini Room in Elgin IL, with Elgin’s own Covington Groove. Martini Room has been an advocate for artists in Elgin for over 14 years and they need us, they need YOU, now more than ever. Here’s the idea: typically when you pay a cover it goes to the band. In this case, we’re using your donations (think of them as covers) to support Elgin, namely, Martini Room and Covington Groove. The success of these live streaming events is greatly increased by mobilizing the community in Elgin. Sharing posts, inviting people to view, and most importantly getting others in the community to share posts and to get their friends to share and tune in. The show will be May 20th at 7:30 pm broadcast live from the Tunes For a Minute Facebook page. #everyonedeservesaminute Posted by Tunes For A Minute on Wednesday, May 20, 2020
