Make sure to give Spitfire and Stonewater a like on Facebook to keep up to date on which nights they have music and whose playing! Oh and they allow pups on the patio!! (well behaved of course!)
J Corks Live Music Saturdays
The patio at J Corks in downtown Greensburg is one of our favorites and what’s even better is that they have live music on Saturday nights from 8-10pm!

Outdoor Live Music at Headkeeper
One of the communities favorite spots to grab food and drinks (hello 400 plus cans and bottles of beer plus drafts!) is Headkeeper Tapas Bar. With their beautiful patio, it’s only perfect that they host live music occasionally during the summer months! Like their Facebook page to watch for upcoming shows, the next one is July 8 with the Phisbins!
Acoustic Thursdays at All Saints Brewery
Last year All Saints Brewery opened their back patio to the public and it was well worth the wait! Multi tiered and plenty of space to listen to local musicians playing acoustic sets from 6-9pm every Thursday. Craft beers, live music and of course food trucks make it the perfect start to the weekend! Like their Facebook page to check out the band and food truck schedule!

We love a good Sunday Funday and Parkwood has them covered with acoustic music from 2-5 every weekend! Local musicians set up on their deck to play and enjoy the last day before the week starts! They have a full schedule on their Facebook page from June to September, so there’s plenty of time to catch your favorite musician! Oh and make sure to grab a basket of their homemade chips! They are some of our favorites!
