LIVE: Musicians Find Gigs During Pandemic With Livestream Concert Series
Livewire Producing Livestream Concerts To Raise Money For Musicians
Musicians who are losing gigs because of the coronavirus have a chance to still hit the stage thanks to a local events company.
Livewire is livestreaming concerts from its Fargo warehouse. Livewire president Kent Kolstad says his company has no events to help produce during the pandemic, and realized local musicians probably had the same problem.
They organized the first Live at Livewire concert within 24 hours on St. Patrick’s Day.
During the shows, you can donate directly to the musicians as you watch them play safely from a distance.
Each of the first two shows raised more than a thousand dollars for the musicians playing that night.
Kolstad says, “We quickly realized, huh, we can fund raise for these musicians and at the same time keep our team engaged and working with production.”
The next livestream concert is Saturday night. Click here to watch them on the Livewire Facebook page. Click here to donate to artists during the show.
