The Music Barn "In The News"
September 2020, South Jersey Magazine:
"The Music Barn had concerts scheduled between April and June and all were canceled due to the pandemic. Heil started a virtual series on Facebook Live, and when the seven shows drew more than 11,000 viewers, he knew there was a demand for music and started laying the groundwork for a return to in-person shows. “I felt that [a drive-in concert] wasn’t the same thing,” he says. “I thought it was important that we got people back to something that resembled normal in the safest way possible.”
August 2020, The Sun Papers:
"If music is the thing which soothes the savage breast and live music takes the edge off months of quarantine, The Music Barn at the Gloucester County 4-H Fairgrounds has the perfect remedy. The operation, which aims to showcase talented but relatively-unknown musicians, has been given the green light to present live concerts once more, with the summer season set to kick off Aug. 14."
May 2020, The Sun Papers:
"In-person concerts may be on hiatus due to COVID-19 social distancing, but Jake Heil has figured out a way to keep music alive in South Jersey.
The owner of The Music Barn in Mullica Hill has launched a livestreaming concert series to take the place of the originally scheduled spring concerts he had planned for this season. The Music Barn hosted two free, livestreamed shows on its Facebook page in April and has plans for two more on May 7 and May 14."

“I think this is a great thing for Mullica Hill moving forward … there’s a lot of good music going on out here … there’s food truck festivals in your own backyard and live music that you can come out on a beautiful night and enjoy,” said Heil."
