In pandemic, St. Louis-area musicians get by with side gigs –

Jake Maness, right, sits, next to his brother, David Maness, left, on a couch as record producer, Carl Nappa, center, and Matthew Podjeski, far right, prepare the mics for the brothers to record a new song at the St. Louis Recording Club in The Hill on Saturday, March 6, 2021. Jake and his brother, David Maness, created the band, The Maness Brothers, together and have toured around the United States and Europe playing their heavy blues rock music. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the brothers had to cancel around 100 gigs, so Jake started his own company, Work Dawg, painting and fixing up homes to make some extra money. Photo by Cheyenne Boone,
