Local live music rebounds on OBX
Tuesday, June 1, may have been the day that marked the official full-on return of live music to the Outer Banks as local band Zack Mexico took the stage at the Outer Banks Brewing Station in Kill Devil Hills.
“It was the first indoor show we’ve had since March 14 of 2020. Wow,” Brewing Station co-owner Aubrey Davis said. “I had so many people come up and say, ‘it’s great to have music back indoors again.’ The band was feeding off of it, and Zach hadn’t played together in almost 15 months. They put on the best show I’ve ever seen them put on.”
Live Music is back, maybe more than ever on the Outer Banks. After 15 months of COVID shutdowns and restrictions, venues are improving and expanding. Outdoor dining areas created to address indoor limits on crowd size are welcoming musicians and are trying music for the first time. And it looks as though the summer music season may keep going into fall.
