Bridge Press Cellars owner Drew Padrta is shifting the focus at his winery to the musicians who headline his new event spaces. Padrta said, “I’m raising money for bands each week who are livestreaming from Bridge Press Cellars to try to give them a few extra dollars during this coronavirus pandemic.

“Please go to gofundme.com/f/help-bands-in-need. I’ll release the names and performance times of the bands as soon as we know them before their livestream concerts at Bridge Press Cellars on Fridays. The more money I can raise, the more bands I can help. Thank you!”

Padrta said the Go Fund Me campaign will continue until Bridge Press Cellars can open again for business at 39 W. Pacific Ave. “All the bands playing are working musicians who can’t collect unemployment even though they aren’t getting paid, so this helps them,” Padrta said.

The Sara Brown Duo is this Friday’s headliner, and they’ll be livestreaming from their living room until Padrta returns next week for livestream concerts at Bridge Press Cellars. The livestream concerts are at 6:30 p.m. PT at facebook.com/bridgepresscellars for now unless otherwise noted, Padrta said.
