Attending Virtual Concerts is Easy with StageIt

Before Christmas we attended a concert of a local musician from our home. The performers were in THEIR home. We were in OUR home. We watched the performance through a website called “StageIt”. It was a fun experience. It felt more personal and intimate to be watching from home on the couch in sweats. It was like having friends come over and play a private concert for us.

We liked the concept so much that we have scheduled our first virtual concert for January 29, 4 pm MT. We chose Sunday afternoon as we thought it would be a nice gentle way to ease into the work week. There are not any NFL games that weekend, so no excuses not to tune in to watch us.

The concert is limited to 30 minutes of showtime with a buffer for an encore, so it will be a quick concert, but that, too makes this intriguing. Surely our friends and fans have 30 minutes to spend with us!? No need to allow for commuting or parking, all you need to do is fire up the computer, get comfortable and watch us perform. There’s even a tip jar if you are so inclined and a running live chat function. I’m not sure how we will be able to chat with you if we are performing, but we will try to figure that out before the 29th.

Following are the step-by-step instructions of how to attend our concert.

Click on this link to buy tickets to our show.

You’ll get a page that looks similar to the following:

On the right side of the screen you see that you can either log in using your Facebook credentials or you can setup a new login. Your preference.

If you click the Facebook option, you’ll get the normal ‘opt-in’ information.

If you click on a new account choice you’ll get something similar to this:


Then you buy “notes”. Notes are “StageIt” currency. 1 note = 10¢. Therefore, for our first show, our suggested ticket price of 50 notes = $5. But of course, pay what you want. If seeing us live is worth 1000 notes to you, feel free to donate $100 to the band.

On the night of the show, you’ll log into your dashboard and watch the concert. It’s that simple.

Hope you’re able to virtually join us on January 29!
