POSTPONED DUE TO INJURY 3/6/22: The Milkhouse Heaters

This show has been postponed – Jan slipped on ice outside a venue and has a concussion. She’ll be OK, but doctor’s orders are for her to lay low for the next month. Jan didn’t want to postpone, but her excellent husband Mike is putting his foot down… it’s really very sweet.

This happened after press deadline for several papers, so you may see some column inches or calendar listings that are unaware of the situation. Apologies as needed for any confusion.

The Milkhouse Heaters will play the Stage 33 Live listening room at 33 Bridge Street in Bellows Falls, Vermont, on Sunday, March 6 at 6:00 PM. $5 recommended donation for the band. Limited seating. The performance will be recorded and filmed.

The Milkhouse Heaters in Bellows Falls

BELLOWS FALLS — The Milkhouse Heaters will play the Stage 33 Live listening room in Bellows Falls. Vermont, on Sunday, March 6 at 6:00 PM. Twice canceled by COVID-19, the third time’s the charm.

Jan and Mike are refugees of the Boston music scene, where they were nominated for a Boston Music Award and shared the stage with The Black Crowes, Corey Glover, Fuel, Feeder, and Hum, and their songs are on compilations alongside the likes of G. Love and Special Sauce, Jack Johnson, Burning Spear, and The Mighty Mighty Bosstones. Their music has been licensed to television shows on ABC, VH1, MTV, ESPN, and ESPN 2.

They moved to southern Vermont in 2003, rolled Americana into their punk roots, and became The Milkhouse Heaters. They’ve opened for Fred Eaglesmith and closed for Billy Bragg, had two songs featured on The Shoulder to the Plough CD, and were repeat invited performers at the Roots on the River Festival.

They’re beloved not just for their strong writing and performing chops — they’re ardent supporters of local live music and considered, considerate living.

This listening room show is on Sunday, March 6 at 6:00 PM, at Stage 33 Live, 33 Bridge Street in Bellows Falls, Vermont. The performance will be recorded and filmed. Seating is limited to 40. A $5+ donation is suggested for the band, but nobody will be turned away for lack of money. Advance donations made through the website double as chair reservations.

All individuals are required to wear a mask except when eating or drinking, and maintain a six-foot social distance from people not in their party. Performers are not required to be masked while performing. Seating will be a minimum of eight feet from the stage. If you wish to make a custom seating pod for your party, arrive early to do so; the chairs are movable and configurable. People who have already arrived and have arranged their seating will not be expected to move. This policy may change without notice.

Stage 33 Live is a casual and intimate industrial-rustic listening room in a former factory hosting local, regional, and national performances and presentations of original material. No bar or kitchen, the stage is the mission; coffee / soda / juice / water and weird snacks available by donation. More info about the nonprofit, all-volunteer project, and this and other upcoming events, online at

Stage 33 Live gratefully acknowledges the help of so many individuals without whom none of this would be happening, and institutional support from The Island Corporation, the Vermont Arts Council, Ben & Jerry’s Foundation, Covered Bridge Cookies, the Bellows Falls Opera House, and the Rockingham Arts & Museum Project that helps fund improvements and maintenance, and generally smooths out a lot of the rough edges. Stage 33 Live is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, and all donations are deductible to the fullest extent. Volunteers run the thing from stem to stern.
