The Heart of Live Music Beats This Weekend!

Here is a listing of Altoona area live music happenings for the weekend and week of Friday, February 10 through Thursday, February 16.

With Valentine’s Day happening on Tuesday, several Valentine’s-themed live music happenings – including dances and dinners – take place in the coming days. Among them, Felix & the Hurricanes will entertain at a special Valentine’s Dance in the grand ballroom of the Altoona Grand Hotel (former Ramada) on Saturday night. Also, Raining Blue will provide dinner music during a special Valentine’s Dinner event at the Woody Lodge Winery near Ashville on Saturday evening.

Raining Blue will also entertain at the U.S. Hotel in Hollidaysburg on Friday evening, as part of a fundraiser for the Mountain Lion Backpack program, which provides weekend meals for children in need in the Altoona area. The event starts at 6 p.m.

Check out and support the area live music! And if you celebrate heavily while doing so, please designate a sober driver or call a taxi to get you home.
