Best Variety Show 

Drinks with the Band

Combine great music, a little comedy, interviews with interesting people and alcohol, and you’ve got Drinks With the Band. The St. Louis-based show live streams at 8 p.m. on Wednesday nights (the second season kicks off in November) with host Chris Denman marshaling a small and changing cast of characters for an evening hangout. Rather than bemoan the remote, Zoom-conference state of the world, Denman of the We Are Live! show has used it to his (and as a result, our) advantage to beam in performers from around the country who have extra time these days. Along with the conversations and live solo performances, the show regularly features Eric "ET" Tecosky who mixes Jack Daniel's-based cocktails, switching up themes to suit the mood or band. And they've dished out a variety of giveaways, including dart boards, a karaoke machine and t-shirts from every artist who has gone on the show. Drink in hand, with a live show to enjoy, we can all enjoy a little virtual entertainment together — from our own homes. — Doyle Murphy
