NEXT VIDCAST: TUES. DECEMBER 17th at 8:30pm EST
With the demise of Concert Window this year, and the exodus of good people from Facebook, we're going to try something different - YouTube Live ! Join us for some winter holiday celebration AND the public kickoff of the Treasures in My Chest download sale. It happens at my YouTube channel on Tuesday December 17th at 8:30pm Eastern with a free show (you can still contribute whatever it's worth to you via PayPal or Venmo!). We'll have plenty to talk about with that, the and much more - I hope you'll tune in along with your best friends from around the continent!
Vidcasting has been a vital avenue to audiences that I don't otherwise reach in person very often, and hopefully YouTube Live will be a user-friendly platform that will still allow viewers to directly financially support the artist.
Please visit and subscribe at http://youtube.com/andrewmcknightdotnet, and use social media and email to help spread the word to your friends. It would be a delight to share some "face" time with you, and raise a toast or two together. I'd love for you to join me and to help get my new project out to more people too.
What is a VIDCAST? A live performance broadcast over the internet via video! You can watch it as it happens from wherever it happens. Sometimes we'll fairly spontaneously vidcast live from a show on the road, or use Facebook's Live feature. Watch the show, interact with other guests and make requests via the Chat Room, all from the comfort of your own home, snack bar and beverage cabinet.
Vidcasting allows me the opportunity to help make the mortgage while being home with my family, but I also use the opportunity to share behind the scenes stuff. I usually mix in a couple chestnuts from out of my early catalog, sometimes a fun cover of a traditional tune, or a standard from the Great American Songbook, or who the heck knows. And of course, a few longtime favorites too. It's a bit different than a regular concert with the audience in the room - think of it as an interactive TV broadcast.
Huge thanks for your generosity - this is the bulk my salary for December (and it keeps the tour bus off the road - not carbon neutral, but a whole lot better than driving a few thousand miles). It's a lot of fun, and a really special experience. Happy Holidays, and see you here at my house on the 17th!
