How does it work?
Our three camera, HD setup has already hosted more than 250 live shows via Station Inn TV. Bands have the ability to perform on our stage with full sound and a professional broadcast operator, who streams the show to Station Inn TV, our Facebook Page, and the band's Facebook page. Shows will be free to the public online and we will promote the band's individual fundraiser (GoFundMe, Indiegogo, etc) during the show. These shows will be performed to an empty house (no fans in the venue or tickets sold) with the lowest number of people on site as possible: band, sound person, broadcast operator, and a Station Inn staff person who will be cleaning between performances.
We do not know how many broadcasts we will do, or how long this will last. But The Station Inn is interested in helping as many musicians as possible.
Why are we fundraising?
We are not charging anything to the bands for their fundraiser show. Electricity, staff, etc are all involved to put these performances together. This fundraiser is to cover our costs for these performances, while we have lost all revenue which would normally come from regularly scheduled shows.
