It was Michael’s appearance on our stage for an audience of several on March 13, 2020 that launched our first tentative steps toward the Bird & Beckett live stream. Check this little facebook live test, shot by our own Angie Bennett on a borrowed iPhone. We made do with that approach until Nico Mesa came along and set us up with our current gear and Angie moved over to become a remarkably talented sound engineer. The live streams are much more beautiful to view and listen to now, though the musicianship, spirit and soul have always been there. All along, we’ve kept it going, week after week after week.
Please do tune in this evening!
These are fine players, pleased to be sharing the stage and playing for you.
Michael Zilber is a formidable talent.
And don’t take the live stream for granted! Donate what you can to help us pay the musicians. They’re professionals who have been underemployed for the past fourteen months, and we’re committed to a $600 guarantee for quartets in these tough times. That’s a high bar, what with folks being not terribly accustomed to offering money for what they take in on YouTube and Facebook… We can’t begin to express how much we appreciate your support.
Support the artists performing in our live streams! Contribute during the live stream (i.e., “pay your cover charge”) and we’ll put your contribution directly to their guarantee!
