The Acoustic Shoppe has a plan to help support our local music community through the difficult months ahead but they need your help. The Acoustic Shoppe will be hosting a number of “Virtual Concerts” taking advantage of the multi-camera and multi-platform live streaming setup that is used to host their TV Show, The Ozark Music Shoppe, while providing a platform to donate & and purchase merchandise, with every dollar raised going straight to the artist. 
 
 
We are all going through the difficult and unsettling changes that have fundamentally affected our everyday lives. Each of us has seen the stock market dive, businesses shut their doors, sporting and music events canceled, and grocery shelves emptied. Thankfully most of our fellow citizens work for a business or company that will offer financial security to some extent, be it working at home, or even unemployment benefits.
 
Unfortunately, there is a different segment of our workforce that doesn’t have these fall back options, the self-employed. A specific group of the self-employed hit the hardest are musicians and entertainers who, in the course of one week, saw their entire income for the foreseeable future disappear one concert and festival cancelation at a time. Many artists were en route to events only to receive the phone call hours before they were to go on stage that they would not only be coming home empty-handed, but out the travel expense as well.
 
 
The venues are blameless in this, it is the only safe and responsible thing to do. But now all of these musicians who we have all counted on to get through tough times with their music and skills they have spent lifetimes developing, are asking themselves how they are going to pay their mortgages and feed their families.
 
 
This is where we can all work together to help keep our music community alive and well, and in return have a place to turn to when the stress and negative emotions attempt to overwhelm our spirits over these next uncertain months. Starting with two “live virtual” concerts each week, we hope to provide a place for homebound fans to tune in for some great music, and provide at least a small source of income for our local musicians via online donations and merchandise sales. All money collected will be given to the artist performing. We ask that you all help us to spread the word about these music events by sharing it with your friends and families and attend and hosting “Watch Parties” when we go live.
