Smith Mountain Lake Live Music, originally created in 2018, started out as a public Facebook group to provide a place where musicians may announce and promote their shows so that people seeking a fun time might find live music around the lake and adjacent regions, but in recent months, it has taken on a life of its own.  

Working collaboratively with local marinas and music venues around the area, Smith Mountain Lake Live Music is a hub for live music, events and free giveaways.
