pandemic has put live concerts on pause for 2020, which means artists, music
labels, and music clubs especially have to be creative if they still want to put
out live music. DBA New Orleans has not allowed the COVID-19 safety
guidelines to stop them from getting music to the people of New Orleans. This
Frenchmen Street club's owner says, "We've been hearing from our fans all
across the world that they want their fix of live music," so DBA will be
hosting from eight to 12 live concerts a week from their new virtual venue: DBA
will be streamed through StageIt, allowing concerts to be viewed nationally
and internationally. StageIt is an online venue for livestream events; all
streams are live, have interactive chats, and allow viewers to donate tips. DBA
Live will have a "cover fee," and viewers will also have the opportunity to
provide the club with additional support through a virtual tip jar. The cover
fee ranges from $5 to $10, depending on the show. Since the shows will all be
live, the audience will be able to interact with the artists to ask questions,
request songs, and show support.
week, DBA Live has several concerts that they will be streaming live. Today,
there are two shows, starting at 2 p.m. with Little Freddie King and then
ending this evening with Soul Brass Band at 8 p.m. The Tin Men play at 2 p.m.
on Friday, October 2, followed by Dwayne Dopsie & the Zydeco Hellraisers at
