Want to relive THAT special moment in song or just chill out with some cool tunes as you isolate?
Well, Newcastle entertainment agency EAO Entertainment are giving you the chance with a new service dubbed Livestream Celebrations.
The concept will enable people to book featured artists Tim Harding (pictured), Jess Knaus and Caleb Coles for an intimate live performance that will be streamed through Zoom.
Livestream Celebrations offers two services – the first being a special song performance where people can book an artist for the rendition of a song that has a significant meaning such as a newlywed couple’s first dance song performed as an anniversary gift.
The second is a virtual house concert where artists can be booked for a private gig at your place to help celebrate a special occasion or simply to have a good old boogie at home on a Friday night.
EAO Events and Marketing Coordinator Eliza Taylor said the initiative was a great way to provide work for local musicians while also giving people something that is sorely absent in the face of recent mass venue closures.
“Livestream Celebrations aims to not only provide our artists with work but to, more importantly, allow people to access quality live music and add that special element to their private celebration,” she said.
“Being in self-isolation and not being able to celebrate with family and friends like we’re used to will be hard and very different this year, so we wanted to come up with a way live music can still be a part of that celebration and people can have a memorable private function albeit online via Zoom.
“We definitely encourage song requests and interaction with our artists, just like being at a live gig!”
