NORFOLK, Va. - It's probably been awhile since you've been to a concert and enjoyed live music, thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic.

On Saturday, some bands in Norfolk brought live music for Ghent residents in an event called Porchella.

Over a dozen musicians performed at different homes across the Ghent area. Instead of a large Coachella like stage, they performed on porches while neighbors listened for free.

All participants were instructed to wear a mask and stay six feet apart.

Porchella went on from 6 p.m. to 9: 30 p.m. Saturday.
