Almost anything can be improved with music, as evidenced by tuba-accompanied balcony serenades, operatic State of the Union addresses, and yodeled bank statements. Tune your ears to the sweet sounds on stage with today's GrouponLive deal for a cabaret-dining ticket to one of four concerts at Musikfest Café presented by Yuengling at the ArtsQuest Center in Bethlehem. Seats are assigned on a first-call, first-served basis via phone reservation. Tickets will be available for pickup at will call. Choose from the following options:
• For $16, you get to see Wanda Jackson on Saturday, July 30, at 7:30 p.m. (a $32 value).
• For $16, you get to see 7 Walkers on Tuesday, August 9, at 7 p.m. (a $30 value).
• For $16, you get to see The Verve Pipe on Saturday, August 13, at 7 p.m. (a $30 value).

The ArtsQuest Center welcomes a colorful lineup of bands and comedians to its cozy Musikfest Café. Attendees can douse themselves in the reverberating sound waves of rockabilly star Wanda Jackson, the propulsive pop stylings of The Verve Pipe, the juicy funk cocktail of 7 Walkers, and the space-age melodies of Mr. Ho's Orchestrotica, a big-band tribute to Mexican composer Esquivel! and the soundtrack to Quantum Leap. Fans can enjoy cabaret seating located no more than 60 feet from the stage, allowing them to admire the performers up close and discreetly alert them of bass-drum fires. Although food and beverages are not included in today's deal, the venue will serve a smorgasbord of eats and drinks—including pulled-pork sandwiches ($9.95), flatbread pizzas ($7.95–$8.95), and a selection of wine and beer—preventing bellies from roaring uncontrollably during covers of "The Lion Sleeps Tonight."
