Music is diverse and can range from country to pop, classical, reggae, blues, rock, jazz, Latino, R&B, folk and many others. Musicians voluntarily take to the “stage” on porches at their designated times and perform for the public. Signs with artists’ names and performance times are usually posted in front of porches and online.
