How are you? Yes, I know it’s been a month(ish) since I’ve posted but here’s all the updates of what’s going on with Merit Koch & the Company (that includes all of you awesome people that are helping me as a musician by #ShowingUp and #ShowingOut.) PLUS, check out the awesome shows for this fall!
Meet Me in Memphis⏤Singer-Songwriter Night @South Main Sounds -June 24, 2016-
South Main Sounds is an amazing organization that promotes local musicians in the Memphis area. Their weekly Friday “Songwriter Nights” are no exception. I had the great honor to share the stage with awesome regional artists while also playing my originals. Here’s just a glimpse from this amazing, music-filled night.
Huey’s Southaven Takeover (June 26, 2016)
Thanks to all the friends and fans who #ShowedUp and #ShowedOut for my first gig at Huey’s Southaven. I was so happy to see everyone come out and help me #TakeOverHueysSouthaven. It was a night filled with great music and (of course) the best burgers in the Memphis Area! Missed this show? Come on out and see me (same time, same place) August 21st!
Memphis Farmer’s Market (July 9, 2016)
Some of my favorite gigs are festivals, arts fairs, and farmers markets. These events always have a deep sense of community, where friends and neighbors come together to socialize and support craftsmen and farmers. I always meet the most generous people at these gatherings, and the Memphis Farmer’s Market was no exception. Hosted by South Main Sounds, the Farmer’s Market music stage brings musicians all over the city to fill the space with a perfect Saturday morning soundtrack for shoppers and vendors alike. Throughout my set, I had the opportunity to break out the egg shakers for the kids, play Johnny Cash and Cyndi Lauper for their parents, and perform some Adele for Gen Y’ers like me. While I did get some money in my tip jar, I was overwhelmed by the farmers and merchants who gave me peas, squash, cantaloupe, and more. Making friends like these is why I love my job.
WHAT A UNBELIEVABLY FUN TIME AT THE MEMPHIS FARMER’S MARKET! Good vibes, great new friends, and fun music (with plenty of veggies for later) in beautiful South Main Arts District this morning. Always grateful to Mark Parsell @southmainsounds for his contribution to the #Hmemphismusic scene. It’s because of him that people like me get to have a kickin time with y’all! Until next time! #meritkoch #music #southmainsounds #southmain #music #memphis #acoustic #xoxo
