Jesse Peters plus Seven Short Sets at Stage 33 Live
BELLOWS FALLS — Jesse Peters will play a full set following micro-performances by local and regional performers Brian Dade, Carl Beverly, Charlie & Emma, Gillis Mills, Ian Galipeau, Josh Cummings, and Will Stahl (performance order to be determined). A 3:00 PM matinee at Stage 33 Live, 33 Bridge Street in Bellows Falls VT on Sunday, March 5, 2023. Suggested $5+ donation at the door, no advance tickets. Limited seating; performances are recorded and filmed.
Jesse Peters has been a Southern Vermont music scene mainstay since moving back to the area in 2001 after graduating The University of The Arts in Philadelphia with a bachelor’s in jazz guitar and a master’s in music teaching. His styles run the gamut while remaining focused and accessible.
Seven 12-minute-or-less short slots will precede — some familiar players, some new ones. Micro-sets are an engaging and effective way for an audience to discover performers. Impressive talents often materialize out of left field… and sometimes talents that are just plain out of left field. It’s fun.
With the backlog of Covid-postponed shows to reschedule and a growing list of artists waiting for future dates, Stage 33 Live hasn’t run many open mics since the lockdown. When the featured act scheduled for this date needed to withdraw, opportunity opened a door. Jesse, who had been on tap to open, was elevated to the feature slot, and a call was put out for half a dozen performers interested in playing short slots. There were seven responses within 24 hours.
Entry will be by donation at the door ($5 suggested) for the featured performer. Nobody will be turned away for lack of money. 3:00 PM, Stage 33 Live at 33 Bridge Street in Bellows Falls VT on Sunday, March 5, 2023.
The COVID-19 protocol will be the guidelines in effect in the community on show day. Currently the guidance is that masks are optional, which may change without notice. Please do not attend if you are experiencing any respiratory virus symptoms. A pair of high-capacity air purifiers will be running.
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.

Stage 33 Live gratefully acknowledges the help of so many individuals without whom none of this would be happening, and institutional support this season from The Island Corporation, the Vermont Arts Council, the Bellows Falls Opera House, and the Rockingham Arts & Museum Project that helped fund improvements and maintenance, and generally smooth 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.
