A1: @Joebonamasa partnered with @keepingthebluesalive to provide a relief fund for touring musicians. Here he has listed special events with the guitarist as well as an easy text form of donation. It’s a definitive lifeline for the struggling industry! #Jandolichat https://t.co/wswX7XLozH— Stephen Wilt (@stephen_wilt) May 12, 2020
A1: I covered this for MTV News and talked to artists/organizers who put on DIY livestreams via Instagram Live. One that’s charmed me is the weekly virtual mini “festival” by @specialistsub records featuring artists all over the globe on one IG stream. #JandoliChat https://t.co/nDcsMhuwzs— Patrick Hosken (@patrickhosken) May 12, 2020
Definitely have been a fan of having bands playing via zoom on Instagram and Facebook live— Ashley Gallagher (@ashpgallagher) May 12, 2020
As a fan, I love the weekly performances @danmanganmusic has done from his basement. Also have to give credit to @arkellsmusic for their 58 consecutive-day chats and lessons on IG, often with guests. It’s endearing!— Amber Healy (@AmberMHealy) May 12, 2020
A1: From Nicholas Coyne: Seeing people rally around music in a number of different ways has been the most touching experience, also Global Citizen always produces a great event for an even greater cause and their “Together At Home” special really felt unifying. 1/2 #JandoliChat— Jandoli Institute (@Jandoli_Inst) May 12, 2020
Any time the late-night game can go deeper with more poignant moments, it’s usually a great win. This one was particularly moving. #JandoliChat— Patrick Hosken (@patrickhosken) May 12, 2020
Late to the party, and slightly off-topic, but I appreciated how Saturday Night Live handled their last few episodes of the season. The Disney Sing-Alongs have been fun as well.— Sean Patrick O’Brien (@yourfavoriteSOB) May 13, 2020
