NEWS & HAPPENINGS

Phase 1 - The Candyman Plan for Reopening

May 15, 2020

On May 13th, Governor Michell Lujan-Grisham announced Phase 1 orders regarding the COVID-19 pandemic to be in effect beginning May 16th. These orders allow us to open our store to the public at 20% capacity with restrictions and CDC practices firmly in place.

We will continue to offer curbside pickup, shipping, and delivery.

Weekly Online Open Mic

Join us on Facebook Live every Friday at 5:30 through May 29th as a variety of performers step onto our virtual stage and entertain us with their artistry. It’s just like an open mic at a club, but from the comfort of your home! Click the image to see the Facebook Event!

As we all adjust to the new reality of life under isolation and social distancing, The Candyman is pleased to provide a forum for musicians and aspiring musicians to share some musical joy during these trying times.


Do you have something you’d like to perform at our next open mic? All levels are welcome!
