Concert Live Streaming Improves But. . .
Here at Party Bands, we believe nothing will ever replace the live concert experience. We also believe live streaming is a great way for musicians to connect with their audiences. We want to help foster the relationship between music artists and their followers. Accordingly, we are offering a unique service to the “band-for-hire” platform by offering Live Streaming! When a band signs up, in addition to being linked to their website, they will have access to a Zoom Meeting Page. What does that mean? It means bands can host meetings, jams, rehearsals, concerts, right here on PartyBands.com.
Upon request, you’ll be given access to your very own page to invite (passworded or non passworded) people to meet. First, set up the band, take the sound from the mixing board into an audio interface, into your MacBook Pro or another laptop, and utilize the computer’s audio system sound through our Zoom Meeting feature. Record the audio and listen back to it making small adjustments until you are happy with the sound. Be sure to leave plenty of headroom to avoid distortion. Who knows what the future holds for live streaming? Currently, live streaming as a bi-product of the pandemic is still of keen interest and so we are making it available to you. We are also setting up “ticketing” this way if you wish, you’ll be able to charge a fee for the live events you wish to present.
If you wish we will post your event on our Event Calendar so that website visitors can stop by and check out your event and maybe they’ll want to hire you, buy an album, tee-shirt, etc… You’ll even have the ability to set up recurring events so your audience may grow from week to week. Great for rehearsals!
Currently, we can only handle 100 guests max. in the “meeting” environment. If interest in the service grows we will expand to the “webinar” environment and be able to accommodate an unlimited number of guests. There is a catch though. In the webinar environment, guests can only observe. There’s no back-and-forth communication making webinars better suited for concerts. Meetings however are better for communication between band and event coordinator. In a meeting environment, bands and guests can converse back and forth. Bands can perform songs in a more à la carte style and follow the event itinerary with band breaks, song requests, pacing the crowd to add a personal more touch to the experience.
There you go! Sign up now to take advantage of this live streaming opportunity. Give the link to friends so they can join you here at PartyBands.com where we love musicians, bands, party planners, gigs, live concerts, everything live music!
