Streaming Concert Scheduled to Help Local Musicians in SWLA
The event is called Streaming 4 Relief. The shutdown of bars and venues has taken its toll not only on the patrons and bar owners, but on the musicians who occupy those venues to keep us all entertained. A lot of these musicians rely on these venues as their full time work.
SWLA's very own Deep South Productions has partnered with Brandgineers to help alleviate some of that pain of not being able to play and make money. Deep South Productions owner, Marvin Simon stated:
I stand behind the artists because without them we don't have a job. The musicians are the backbone of everything we do. I am proud to be a part of Streaming 4 Relief and to partner with the Brandgineers to put food on the table. Without the cast on the front line we can't work.
Currently, the streaming concert has over 20 acts set to perform including Frank Foster, Wayne Toups, Chubby Carrier, Parish County Line, Johnny Jimenez, and Casey Peveto just to name a few. People across the entire nation will be able to purchase a ticket to tune in live for the performances. The concert will be streamed on the Vimeo app available on smart devices, AppleTV, Roku, and more.
According to Brandgineer CIO, Brand Beard, proceeds will be split among various artists, while another portion of the proceeds will be given to various charities within Louisiana. If a purchaser would like to support an artist directly, you can enter a special codeword that will be supplied on the website to make sure the artist gets that particular portion.

Ticket prices begin at $30 to view the series for both nights, $20 per night, or $60 for the VIP Virtual Experience, which will feature backstage views and interviews.
