Some Michigan musicians are providing some fresh distraction for those in Stay At Home due to the novel coronavirus pandemic...

Traverse City's the Accidentals, now based in Nashville, is launching a "3 For Tea" series of daily interactive livestreamed performances from 3-4 p.m., starting Wednesday, March 25, with a "Pick Your Playlist" episode on Facebook Live.

"Since we toured together for a month, we decided we were good to quarantine together for a couple weeks," the trio said in announcing the series. "We are drinking lots of hot tea and popping zinc tabs...and washing everything in sight. Meanwhile we are writing and recording and coming to you live!"

The "3 For Tea" series currently runs through March 30, with themed episodes alternating between YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and other portals. More information and updates can be found at theaccidentalsmusic.com.

MC5 co-founder Wayne Kramer will be on Facebook Live as well with a 2 p.m. program "Ask Wayne Anything" program that will feature, as the title indicates, a Q&A along with a performance of the song "Let Me Try" with Kramer's Kollaborators featuring guitarist Wayne Rector and the BellRays' Lisa Kekaula.

Lansing's Joe Hertler & the Rainbow Seekers are providing entertainment with "Rainbow Land 2," a new Minecraft server game that can host up to 50 players at once. "The game only asks players to play, cooperate and to be creative," Hertler says. "There are no pre-set goals or reward systems inherently built into the game." Details and access are available via JoeHertler.com/Minecraft.
