Pianist Making a Living Playing Live on Facebook?
Is that even a real thing?
I’m thinking that probably most, if not all, of our lives sort of fell apart about a month ago.
My beautiful 15-20 gigs a week went to zero! : ((
And at a time when people really need music the most the usual channels were cut off.
But I have wanted to try to find a way to perform more on the internet. And necessity is the mother of invention.
I was inspired by an artist named Dawn Beyer who has made her living just playing live on the internet for the past 4 years and I said ok…I’m going to try that out. I’m going for it.
And for the past 3 weeks now I’ve been going “live” almost every day.
Live is fun. I can see comments, requests, love etc.. and can interact with my friends live.
I’m not really “making a living” yet but it’s super fun trying to figure out how to do this I really want to make this work.
Am I crazy? : ) Probably…
But finally, I’m playing for YOU! (On-demand and all day in some cases.)
And I’m doing a concert every day from 5:30-7pm PST
I have a tip jar out if you are so inclined but even if you just want to come around and request your favorites and say hi that is so awesome!!
We have a great time every day!!
I’ve been able to play for 20,000 people now in the past month just on my Facebook page, Imagine!! And more and more awesome folks are showing up each day.

I plan to build up a million followers on the page. Right now there are about 2000.
Come join the fun.
Today I’m going to do two things. I’m going to do a setlist for my sister, Beth, who was sweet enough to commission me to do a short set about Paris!
I’m excited. She was going to go to Paris and the pandemic stopped her trip. (bummer)
But we’re going to create Paris for her this afternoon!!
And then at 4:30 PST to 7:30 I’ll be playing with Eric Zimmerman and Bob Sullivan for a 3 hour live Jazz Concert!
I’m really looking forward to both of them.
