VERSATILE MUSICIAN JUSTIN CARDER AVAILABLE FOR PRIVATE, LIVE-STREAMED CONCERTS
Concerts Perfect for Bringing People Together Online for Birthdays, Anniversaries, Graduations
LAS VEGAS (April 2020) – Las Vegas-based musician Justin Carder, a versatile singer and songwriter who typically performs more than 300 live gigs a year, now offers private virtual concerts via Facebook Live. Perfect for bringing people together to celebrate festive occasions of all kinds, concerts can be organized for invitation-only private Facebook groups. Carder performs the concerts from his living room, while audiences can comprise people from anywhere in the world.
“When I realized we would have to celebrate my wife Celena’s birthday under quarantine, I tried to think of a way to involve her friends and family in something special,” explained Chris Stacey, who organized a private Facebook Live concert with Carder. “Justin had performed a few virtual concerts for his own Facebook followers, so I asked if I could book him for a private birthday concert and he was game. The feedback we had from everyone who joined us that night was amazing—we had guests log on from as far away as Canada and Australia to make requests and say how much they enjoyed the concert. Most importantly, Celena loved it.”
During the concert, the virtual audience can use the Facebook Live comments section to make requests and interact with one another. Private live-streamed concerts typically entail a fee, which Carder is willing to negotiate based on his clients’ specific needs and circumstances. He also provides his CashApp and Venmo handles so anyone who wishes to tip him can do so.
“Music has a way of lifting people up and uniting them like nothing else—and we need to find ways to connect with one another now more than ever,” said Carder. “I’m just grateful to be able to do something that brings joy to people while circumstances keep them apart.”
