David Bowie Tribute Night with Major Tom & The Moonboys
: Saturday, February 13 th at 6:00 pm at Urban Lounge. Urban Lounge has been working hard over these last few months to create a safe indoor concert experience. The entire event is seated. Tickets will be sold in household groups with a minimum of 2 persons. Each group will be separated by 6 feet with other groups. We ask everyone to please keep a 6 foot distance from each other as well while moving throughout the venue to use the restroom, step out into the back patio, etc. They will also allow larger groups to attend our events together. Please purchase your tickets as a single group ie, if there are six in your group, make sure those tickets are purchased together in one transaction. This way, we can know your group size ahead of time and coordinate our seating to match. Masks are required to be worn at all times. You are allowed to dip your mask down to sip your beverage only, and we ask that you put it back on between drinks.  The singer will be allowed to not wear a mask, as we will place a plastic shield directly in front of the performer. Beverages will be served via CARD ONLY. Hand sanitizing stations will be placed throughout the venue for your convenience. If an audience member is not respecting the rules, we will kindly ask once that they follow the rules.  A second notice will result in asking the attendee to leave the event. Thank you for helping keep the live music community alive during this difficult time. Please email nic@sartainandsaunders.com if you have any further questions or concerns.
