Covid-19 and lock-downs putting musicians out of work


100% of my income comes from music, and although I still have a "couple" gigs on the books, I'm expecting that to quickly go down to zero with no estimate for how long it will be before I can make any money. In an effort to not starve and keep my wife and kittehs happy and healthy, I'll be offering online/Skype guitar lessons for anyone interested (contact me for info).

I'm also trying something new- I'm  performing LIVE STREAMING "concerts" from home (both solo and maybe with full band) and accepting  tips or donations via Paypal.  I'll be taking requests, answering questions, chatting and maybe you can even turn it up loud and dance from wherever you're at!  These will streamed through Facebook and eventually posted here on my website and other platforms as well.  Follow me on Facebook for updates!

If you would like to donate funds/Tips please use the Paypal link and you can Tip whatever amount you would like!  Anything helps during this crisis.
