A year or so ago I tried to do an online show with Mean Mary. We were doing house concerts and thought it would be fun to broadcast the second show live online. Unfortunately, we had technical difficulties that made us sound like Alvin and the Chipmunks so we ended up canceling the broadcast of the show.
There is so much involved in being an independent musician and it's easy to get distracted by the technical demands. That can be challenging when all you really want to do is make good music and be present. So we've been setting everything up in the Red Room and I hope that this time we can just hit the broadcast button and turn our attention to the part we love to do. It is kind of a magical thing - being able to tune in and watch a show from the comfort of your own living room or boat or wherever you like to be. I'm really looking forward to this.
Follow up in 2020 - Who knew that this would become the only way to see live music. We are all so lucky that technology has advanced enough to make it relatively easy to do. But...I miss the flesh and blood people. Please stay safe and be kind to yourself and others and we will be together again someday.
