MusicPro Insurance and Sterling Select Entertainment will present the MusicPro Café Thursday, Jan. 28 at 8PM EST. The show is the latest in a series of music performances webcast simultaneously on Zoom, YouTube, and Facebook Live. This episode is the 14th in the series, and like the others offered since the start of the pandemic, it’s been created to provide paying gigs for musicians whose livelihoods have been severely impacted.
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, IK Multimedia, iZotope, Pandora AMP and TAXI A&R.
This MusicPro Cafe will feature: Plane Station, Ashley Sterling, Joe Hanson, Kevin Myers, Alex Ricci, and Whitney Shay.
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, January 28, 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.”
