Austin, TX – Music Firsthand announces their Patreon campaign to secure funding for their weekly live streaming show featuring comedians interviewing musicians. The show offers musicians an opportunity to connect with fans in a unique and personal way, while viewers get access to artists in a way they’ve never seen before, all under one roof. The Patreon campaign comes in anticipation of the launch of their live music booking app, which is now in beta but will be made public by spring, 2018. The company hopes to reach music and comedy fans across the world and get them to take part in this unique experience.

“Music Firsthand is bringing something new to the live music scene. Music is personal and it’s about community, which is something we’ve lost through the rise of streaming algorithms. We want to provide a fresh take on the live music interview in the spirit of Austin, TX’s slogan – Keep Austin Weird. Comedians and musicians are kindred spirits so it’s natural to put them together in a room with fans where anything can happen,” said Kris Potrafka, CEO of Music Firsthand.
Taking part in the Patreon campaign will help fans discover new musicians, and connect with other fans and businesses that truly support emerging artists in a fun environment. Produced by Benjamin Alan Levy, a former production manager at the GRAMMYs the show is streamed weekly from the Music Firsthand Facebook page. Comedians interview the musicians, while the audience can send in their questions, and tag friends for a chance to get featured on the show. Fans who become members of the Patreon community will have the opportunity to help produce the show, get T-shirts, signed CDs, VIP shows, concerts, and more. Business sponsors will get daily social media posts, product display and mentions during the Facebook live show, and their logo included in the post production YouTube video post.
