D-Nice also celebrated frontline workers at a recent concert in Miami, hosted by The Roots. Proceeds from the event went to the First Responders Children’s Foundation.
“I really think that for the foreseeable future, this is the way to go,” DJD Nice told CNN in a recent interview.
With attending concerts in their cars, D-Nice, who has been helping people celebrate safely at home with groups on Instagram Live since March, said he found creative ways to connect with the public.
“Usually if I perform in a club or event, you feel the energy of people,” he said. “It was discovered by people who blow their horns. Once you get the call and answer like,” If you feel good, blow your horns! “The moment I felt it and it was loud, I felt like a normal group to me.”
Driving places also find new ways to connect audiences, while keeping social distance guidelines.
Jimmy Vargas, managing partner of 1 / ST LIVE, the team that produced the D-Nice concert in Miami, said the vehicles were spaced 20 feet apart, the event was kept for one hour, and attendees could listen to music on their car radio.
“You have to keep it short and sweet,” Vargas said. “People don’t necessarily have to wake up and use the bathrooms. We distributed masks while entering the cars. We put up signs along the LED wall screens asking people to stay in their car, and clearly we got support from our security team to ensure people didn’t get out of the car “.
Vargas said it went so well that they are exploring more of these music experiences in cities like Los Angeles, Baltimore, and San Francisco.
Adam Albert, CEO of Sony’s Disrupter Records, notes this.
“There is clearly a demand for live concerts,” Albert told CNN. “People miss live music. They miss seeing their favorite artists. They miss the magic and energy that watching live music brings.”
Albert said that while many of the artists on his list yearn for a tour, concerts where people stand side by side again probably depended on the Covid-19 vaccine.
“[Musical artists] Eager to go out, but we have to wait for it to be safe. I think artists and promoters and their places are resilient and will try to find new ways to make live music safe in these troubled times. “
So, nowadays, seeing artists in the comfort of your car may become more popular.
Elie Young Country Music will perform at “Concert in Your Car” on June 4 in Texas. Next three nights will feature Pat Green, Josh Abbot Band, and Kevin Fowler.
“This will not fade anytime soon. The ability to adapt and continue to entertain and the ability to continue to perform our jobs, this type gives us a way to do this safely and responsibly,” band member Mike Elle told CNN.
John Jones, who plays bass guitar for Eli Young, said, “We’re not lowering our projection expectations at all just because it’s totally different.” “We will be there singing, they will be young and we will all sing our own way.”
