It's been (another) long week. The kind of week you get through by looking forward to leaving work Friday at 5 p.m. and heading straight to your favorite bar to meet some friends, blow off some steam, and hear some music. Except all the bars are closed, all the gigs are canceled, and you can only interact with your friends in the group chat.

The next best thing? The Boston Calendar's Live at Five: Virtual Happy Hour Concert Series. Every Friday at 5 p.m. ET, tune in via Facebook Live or Instagram Live to enjoy a short set of live music from local artists. This week's live streaming performances are brought to you by Shanell Alyssa and Kaiti Jones.

If you like what you hear, make sure to drop some cash in the artists' virtual tip jars:

You can also support Boston artists by making a donation to the City of Boston's Artist Relief Fund or the Boston Music Makers Relief Fund operated by nonprofit The Record Co.

So pull up the live stream Friday at 5 p.m., order some delivery or takeout from your favorite local restaurant, and pour yourself a drink. You know what, go ahead and pour yourself two drinks for the price of one because you make the rules at this happy hour.


Shanell Alyssa resides in Boston, MA where she engages communities through creative performances, workshops, and seminars. She honed her talent in church where she and her siblings began singing together. Shanell knows music’s power to transform hearts and unify communities and has been personally transformed by God through music. The songs of her EP Rise Above came after a spiritual awakening in her college years. Following her EP release, Shanell has released several singles, shares in music and worship venues across the northeast, and is pursuing studies in Music Therapy all to further the #RiseAbove movement and use the gifts God has given her.


Kaiti Jones has been making her home in the Boston music scene since 2010. Jones’ music is Americana soaked in melancholy, with the occasional foot stomper thrown in for good measure. Her voice is simultaneously earthy and ethereal, carrying the listener a few feet off the ground on a cloud of rich, sophisticated melodies while whispering truth and contemplating the human condition through good old-fashioned storytelling. Jones has three studio releases: Arise Child EP (2009), Growing Things EP (2013), and VOWS (2017). She was named a finalist in the 2018 national NewSong Music Performance & Songwriting Competition and an artist to watch by WGBH, and she was a 2019 nominee for Female Performer of the year by the New England Music Awards. Jones is currently working on her fourth studio project, slated for release in fall 2020.
