COVID-19 closures have affected businesses we all depend on, making it tough for Oil City residents to make ends meet. Perhaps no one has felt this more than our local musicians, many of whom earn their livings playing gigs at the bars, restaurants and other venues that have been closed for several weeks. We miss them…and they miss us.
This week, Oil City News is rolling out a series of tiny COVID concerts*, one-song sets from local artists who aim to lift our readers’ spirits while also sharing their gifts with the community they love.
Our latest show features singer/songwriter Chris Whitten–most recently frontman for Oil City Outlaws. Chris and friends have played Frontier Brewing, Gaslight Social, Funky Junk and many other stages in the Casper area. Chris moved from Casper to Nashville a few weeks ago–arriving sometime between a tornado and COVID 19. Perfect timing, right? Let’s be sure to show Chris some Oil City love with a tip on PayPal (PayPal.me/cwhittenmusic) or a follow on Facebook.
