Acclaimed photographer Michael Weintrob is the latest creative entrepreneur to launch a new virtual series celebrating music and art with the newly-announced Instrumenthead Live. The virtual series will launch next month on August 6th with its first original event, “Music With 5 Questions,” which will feature Jennifer Hartswick (Trey Anastasio Band), Jeff Coffin (Dave Matthews Band), and Kris Myers (Umphrey’s McGee). The virtual performance will also include bassist Jay White and guitarist Robben Ford.
Other original programming set to air on Instrumenthead Live includes Daniel Donato Album Release for A Young Man’s Country on August 7th, Stolen Faces – Celebrating the Music of The Grateful Dead on August 8th, Lady Couch: Jerry Garcia Tribute on August 9th, The SloBeats (feat. Kenny Vaughan, Dave Roe, & Pete Abbott) on August 15th, and Mimi Naja & Friends (feat. Royal Masat, Lindsay Lou, & Kyle Tuttle) on August 21st.
Fans who purchase a ticket to the August 6th virtual event will receive single viewer access to the watch page, along with the ability to go back and re-watch the webcast on-demand for up to three months after its initial airing date, access to a 15-minute Zoom Meet & Greet with Jeff, Jen, and Kris, and an 8×12 fine art print. According to the announcement, each show will also feature a charity hand-picked by the artist where a portion of virtual ticket proceeds will be donated. Weintrob’s own fine art prints and artist merchandise will also be available for sale.
“I have been fortunate to share space, through my photography, with many musicians around the world,” Weintrob said in a statement with the announcement. “This pandemic has affected us all, in one way or another. This new series is our opportunity to create a safe and fun environment in my Nashville studio for everyone to enjoy high quality audio and video in a unique gallery where the art is curated specifically for the artist performing. We are empowering live art.”
Fans should visit the Instrumenthead Live website for the full schedule and details for the upcoming virtual events.
