NYE Warmup Concert with a Live Audience

While live gigs have been few and far between, online streaming has been a lifeline helping musicians stay connected with patrons and fans of our music. Together with Espresso 77, we produced an early online series called E77 Remote Live, bringing E77 regular performers into people's living rooms while the city was shut down in the height of the NYC pandemic. It was a breath of fresh air that ran it's course as a regular live stream.

Moving forward into 2021, we teamed up with Jenny Van West to produce a new and improved live show from the safe comforts of home. The show will feature the music of Jenny Van West (Portland, ME) and Jonny Meyers (Queens, NY), door prizes, segments and more. What's different here is that there will be a visible audience present throughout the show, not just in the comments section.

For that, we are switching over to ZOOM, making the show exclusive to this invite, and will not be replaying the show to any streaming social media. In essence, it's a gig with a specific time and place. The show will take place on December 31st and will be from 7:00-8:15pm. There is a suggested donation for individuals and/or households, but you can also request a free ticket if you are hurting in any way. Nobody will be turned away at the door.

If you are interested, simply respond to the Eventbrite Link below and provide us with an email. We will be sending the private ZOOM link prior to the show to those that respond.

Let's try this out together and make the event a great, positive push into 2021. Please reach out to me with any questions at jonnymeyers73@yahoo.com (yes, I'm old school). Also please check the performer links above to see what great music you'll be getting yourselves into.

Espresso 77 Presents: Remote Live w/Jonny Meyers

#officialjmqmusic

For over 10 years, Espresso 77 has been hosting live music in Jackson Heights. Recently, we’ve had to change our format, both on the cafe side and the live music side, but that won’t stop us from bringing you what we deem essential - coffee and live music. So, this Friday night, I’ll be playing a live set from my living room on Instagram live at https://www.Instagram.com/officialjmqmusic/

The set will begin at 8:00pm and I’m taking it back to our roots...no PA, no mic, just me and my guitar. I’ll be watching who chimes in, so please join in, say hi, let us know you’re listening, heckle and shout out requests, just like we do at the café.

We have a few other artists lined up to do the same in the coming weeks, so it would be good to gauge how well it works this Friday night. So please tune into #officialjmqmusic between 8:00-8:45pm and let us know you’re there.

E77 is a place for gathering and the recent, necessary shut down has left many of us feeling all sorts of ways. For now, we gather remotely, sharing music like we do at the end of every week. I’m excited to try this and I hope you’ll join me and make yourself present with some text-driven hootin’ and hollerin.’
