Jarrad says: “I’m really excited to be hosting my first live stream concert, not only because it’s a new and exciting way to engage with the public, but I have also been witnessing so many musicians talk about all the work they have lost due to the spread of the Covid-19 virus, and I was adamant to find a solution.”
“Myself and Aki Khan at Pennylane Studios put our heads together and came up with the live stream concert, where people get to purchase a ticket of R50 and watch us perform from the comfort of their homes. The money also gets split up amongst the musicians performing, creating an income.”
Don Vino says this is an opportunity for musicians to make some extra geld while the nations prepairs for a lockdown.
“We're going into lockdown and I know a lot of people are trying to stay sane amongst this insane dilemma we're in. I'm happy to bring a bit of joy and hope with my brother Jarrad Ricketts tonight with his online streaming show,” he says.
The show starts at 8.30pm and tickets can be purchased on webtickets.
