Local performer takes show online

Posted at 6:34 PM, Jul 30, 2020

With bars and clubs closed now, it's been tough for local artists to find venues where they can perform.

J. Coursey Willis, of Kent Island, found a solution.

That solution involves wine, whiskey, a guitar and money!

He suggested to people at his live shows if you don't want to get out of your seat, PayPal some money to the "Bucket". It worked on stage and it worked at home. So what started out as a hundred people watching, turned into 2500 or 3000 viewers.

Josh was making more money at home than in the clubs.

So with his girlfriend, Jennifer Barrick, the live shows took off. The extra money helped finish the studio.

The online shows also allow for feedback from around the world.
