MusicPro Insurance and Sterling Select Entertainment Insurance will present another MusicPro Cafe on Thursday night, June 3 at 8PM EST, paying tribute to LGBTQ+ Pride Month, commemorating the Stonewall riots and supporting the promotion of the self-affirmation, dignity, equality, and increased visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people as a social group.
The show is the latest in a series of music performances webcast simultaneously on YouTube and Facebook Live. This episode will honor essential workers still on the front lines of the pandemic, with performances by a stellar group of independent acts, and like the other monthly shows aired since the start of COVID, it is created to provide paying gigs and career development opportunities for independent musicians.
In addition to guaranteed payments provided by Sterling Select and MusicPro, the artists receive tip revenue paid directly by viewers to each performers’ e-commerce accounts. Artists also receive gear and merchandise from the show’s sponsors, including PreSonus, iZotope, Pandora AMP, Focusrite-Novation and TAXI A&R.
This MusicPro Cafe will feature: Eliza Spear, Raz Davidov, Megan Johnson, Paloma, Mami Moon and Ty Herndon
With clubs, cafes and other live music venues closed, performing musicians who depend on local gigs are themselves in need. Not only have many of their day jobs ended, but their performance income is now also gone. The MusicPro Café gives artists a chance to reach a large audience of viewers and earn an evening’s pay. Viewers going to the MusicPro Café website will find links to watch and listen on Zoom, YouTube or Facebook Live, or they can see the show’s recording afterward on YouTube.
When: Thursday, June 3rd, 8PM EST
“We’ve been insuring musicians’ instruments and equipment for over 20 years,” said MusicPro’s Laura Donelan. “We’re now working for them in another way, but the concept of protecting careers by supporting and celebrating musicians during these trying times is the same.”
