ST. CHARLES ( – Restaurant owners along South Main Street in St. Charles have been frustrated about the law that made it illegal to have a guitarist on the patio or someone playing the piano in the dining room – that changed on Tuesday.

On Tuesday, the St. Charles City Council voted to allow live music with certain limits to please concerned residents.  The music cannot be amplified and it will have to stop at 8 p.m. outside and 9 p.m. inside the restaurant.  Each venue will also have to apply for permits.

“We are just so excited to finally be going forward with this,” Tammy Campbell, owner of Little Hills Winery, said.  “It’s taken a lot of work from a lot of people and I know the work isn’t done before we have our first set of live music.  But I am just so happy that we can do this in a legal fashion.”

Business owners tell News 4 that live music could be played on South Main within the next month.
