Tulsa Live Music Stream Episode 66 Transcipt From Host Gabe
All right hello everyone and welcome back to the Tulsa lives, my name is Gabe and I get to be the host of the show. I'm so happy to be here in front of you guys this evening we would have had the show starting on time, but we had some miscommunications with a couple of the participants this evening. Sore start the show just a little bit later, but again, thank you guys so much for joining us tonight. We have scheduled Doug Russell and guitar, Dave, and then finally we have Karen Greg all going to be performing for you this evening for our new here's celebration live stream this year. New Year's happens to be on a Thursday so we decided were to go and continue on with the show as we normally would. Before we get started today. Again, this is the last stream of 2020. So I'd like to just take a little bit of time and talk to you guys about other things that have happened this past year. Maybe some statistics, sponsorships, things like that that we've actually created and gotten through the production this year and hopefully I can kind of explain what our idea is moving forward for you this year. So again, thank you guys so much for joining us. So our first episode was September. I was either 27th or 28th of 2019 and so that's kinda how we we just we got the stream started on that day was a Thursday evening and this whole idea happened. After some conversations with a musician from the Tulsa area and I we got in touch with him. We found him at a restaurant he was performing in the public and I we just started to develop a relationship with this musician and we thought hey would be really cool to have some talent on a live production show, like what you would see on you know America's got talent or something along those lines, and so we we got in touch with him and we started asking them questions like what is he needing as a musician here in Tulsa. Like how does even you know, get the money to get from point A to point B things like that and so we discussed all of this information with them and we decided that the biggest thing that musicians could use here in Tulsa is a platform for exposure Facebook and some of those other platforms that utilize your information in a certain way musicians can profit off of those methods and so we decided that we would create a method for musicians for exposure and then hopefully to be hired, or at least get together with other musicians through that platform and so our first stream. Very I would consider it low-quality now looking back at it we only had I think a single camera angle and so it was it was very interesting that first episode, and it was just a single musician will have one musician out there and that was mega Adecco again. He was the musician we kinda got started with and just trying to like us. That figure. Figure things out with an anyway that first episode we got through that and we realized you know. Hey, this is what we would consider TV for the younger generation in a TV had gotten so polluted with commercials and in every 10 to 15 minutes. There was a commercial and a lot of my friends were disinterested because of that, and so they they went to YouTube where they went to manga, or there are a couple other different platforms that I use when I was younger. Anyway, that was there entertainment they don't want to watch TV because all the commercials and I was just so so convoluted with politics as well as these these commercials. They just lost interest in it and so they went to the Internet and I am a child of the Internet is born with the Internet. I've never known a world without the Internet. And so it really shaped how I looked at this live production. And so I felt with my experience with the Internet and computers and networking that we could really benefit the musicians here in the Tulsa area with a production so this production is is really in a method for musicians for exposure and just a place to work on their own performances. A place where they can actually go back and review what I would consider their live venue, performance, and then either choose to modify it in a certain way or you know even keep the things that were really good with their performance and they were able to get that from those you know one on one experiences. For instance, whenever they would go to a bar or nightclub and they would have their live performance there. You might receive a clip, you know, at 5 to 10 second clip from one of the audience members and that's what you get for your 2 1/2 to 3 hours show and so that's not really enough time for musician to go back and say I could really I could change these things about my performance and make them better that 10 to 15 second clip just it's not quite enough for them to develop themselves as musicians and so at the beginning of the live show. We had kind of tried to fit as many musicians as we could in a specific time slot and we realize that very quickly that that's kind of the same thing that they were running into at venues, bars or nightclubs and so they didn't actually get that set like experience with a video recording of it. So we've since increased the amount of time and lowered the number of musicians that we have for every episode. That way a musician can get at least 4 to 5 songs out during their performance and they can work on those those songs or their performances using the time that they're allowed here on the show and we've had several musicians who have told us that through the production through through their episodes through their performances on the lifestream that they've been asked to perform in venues that they normally wouldn't be able to get the player and so were very happy to have been able to provide that opportunity for those musicians and were looking forward to being able to provide that in the in the future as well and so some sites cite statistics that we've we've achieved over the last year and couple months September, so year and three months roughly. We've had 219,768 views on our website alone and that does not include the 6 to 8 social media platforms that we promote the show on so that's just website views. If you're into that kind of knowledge. We also have you know, YouTube, Facebook, there's a couple other. What I would consider like nonmainstream platforms that we use and those who are Joshua TV bit shoots band on video those kind of platforms. We also utilize as a social media outlet for promotion and we've we've had the opportunity to work with over 80 musicians 80 musical groups throughout the duration of the year and so that's on average, like one and 1/2 musicians per episode per for each episode, and so were were very happy with that statistic as well. That's we've talked other venues and they don't have near that many musicians rolling through that many different musicians rolling through their venue and so were very happy that we've been able to provide this for the musicians here in Tulsa and so as we continue to move forward but we still plan on having as many musicians as we can during our show. Really the only difference nowadays is that we've added in new programs other than our Thursday evening show in a Thursday evening show again is kind of how we got everything started. Now we've opened up the door. Mega Adecco has actually created his own show, which he performs. He hosts every Tuesday evening rather than him. You know, performing every week on our Thursday show. We just given him the opportunity to do that mega lunch, here in and say hello to everybody mega again. This was the musician who got everything started with us and we just were very happy to have them here would like say anything to everybody. Hello everyone, I don't know who's watching out there, but the greetings and salutations. One is the us but is this illness happy New Year's. I just want to say no I don't work as hard as I should know. Don't give as much as I should, but am proud to be a part of what's happened here. There's been so much work put into this. It's really something unique. When you go online and you see what the we've all collectively created here and the there's a lot of original music that I still have to record the should be recorded in stages and the I haven't gotten around to doing that like I should. But the I'm just am always amazed by what it's like to be around the team and the team has a dedicated a lot of time to me personally feel like in other my best friends and the unknown, like the back of my hand. Well, we really do appreciate everything you've done for us and with us may go and also again don't don't hesitate to catch a show every Tuesday evening at 830 8:30 PM. He's got his dad that will be started back up this this next week. Mega had some congestion buildup and so he couldn't really perform at his at his peak, and so he didn't want to disappoint anybody for those maybe not as best as he could performances so anyway Mego really appreciate you man. Also, we have a new show called strumming with Ms. Kayla Miss Kayla again was another musician who performed on the Tulsa life. I would say her first performance was maybe June or July 2020 and yet she decided that she was not able to do certain things that she would've been able to do in previous years, and the only way for her to continue doing those things was to have some online presence and so we provided that opportunity for Ms. Kayla to reach out to senior citizens homes, assisted-living's areas and I still give her the opportunity to perform her ukulele. Her soothing, just very calm collective music to those people and us were very happy to have Ms. Kayla on board with the Tulsa life as well. Also, we decided as of I think it was about two weeks ago we got in touch with the tortured souls host Robin and she had brought a few musicians. I think it was again like three weeks ago and there called the tall grass drifters and so anyway they got they got in touch with us. We start talking them about some opportunities that we could have for them if they were interested in it and we decided to put together a program called the tall grass drifters Saturday night house party and that's just good to be so well. I think the name pretty much speaks for itself from the standpoint of what kind of music. The be performing but anyway they're going to have their own show. It's good to be on Saturday evenings and at the first show will actually be this upcoming Saturday to be the first Saturday of 20, 21, and we are really looking forward to what they can bring to the Tulsa life and what we can do for them. As far as getting their name out there a little bit differently than what they have in the past and so will have them their first show the Saturday so check it out. It's good to be at 8:00 PM Saturday evening and it will be to be one to remember Oklahoma Mike and Bo are very interesting group of individuals, and they've been playing for really long time and so were very interested to see where that continues to take the total selection of adventure. Also they we have created a promo video with the tall grass drifters and if you watch the five minute break, as we always have here the Tulsa life and then you'll be able to check that out and see what what the shows gonna be about an again very excited to have that on the Tulsa life. Well I think that's enough banter from our host here. One thing that I would like to one other thing before I get too carried away here is attribution me we would be able to do what it is that were doing right now without sponsorships, donations, advertisement, and things like that and so we have several sponsors I'd like to pay attribution to before we get started for this evening. Again, we've got trees from Great Lakes hairstyling salon. She's been sponsoring the show for a very long time really even before the show got started. She was helping the business that owns the program just get on its feet. It's a local business here called the Tulsa video magazine and so she's she's been a hard-core sponsor since since our conception back in. I think it was 2016 is when the Tulsa video magazine actually got started. Next, we've got to Charles from safe home consulting. He was actually on the show last week and he's been just doing a lot of things with the Tulsa video magazine and the Tulsa life. He has his own podcast that the Tulsa life helps run called the just a guy podcast. He does like outdoor sporting and I really just talks about how to be a genuine hunter with either whether that's with a bow or rifle, or in some cases a pistol when a bear sneaks up on you at night. He's got some interesting stories to tell and if you check out the just a guy podcast on SAT Tulsa.com you can see all of his episodes I think is up to. Like maybe 50 to 60 episodes of just archery rifles and add to safety gun safety and many other different outdoor events that he's been a part of. We've also got Jackie Cooper. They they decided to start sponsoring the show. I think it was maybe two almost 3 months ago. Again, we just we would be able to do this without the help of our sponsors and another one that we've got going on for us here is Lembo Darren are there a Hispanic cowboy apparel store and they've been a really big supporter of the Tulsa life since we got started and well is a lot. Can't remember any of the rest of what else we have here. I can't say it's not close enough. O ID3 industrial yes that is correct ID3 industrial another sponsor of the total selection show and then states it is not strange. They have a radio ad and its tangy law firm. I have been mispronouncing that for a while so I apologize staying any for that. But anyway, again, they they were our first what I would consider real sponsor from a standpoint of the actually contacted me about the sponsorship. It wasn't myself or another Tulsa life person that reached out to them so that was a very unique experience for for me to have that first contact from somebody had never heard of before. And so, anyway, again, we really appreciate all the sponsors for for being a part of the Tulsa life and we would not be anywhere near as far as we could. As we are without their support, and all the donators that have a message into the stream. Everybody the hits the hearts and the thumbs up button during the shows that really does show the musicians that are out here performing. We have a big monitor above the studio or the set up that we have here that allows the musicians to see those in real time. So when you click that heart button it does show up and they're able to see that which is why sometimes will see a musician with their eyes like this or like that it's because they're there seeing those hearts get generated those sums gets generated and it's just against really unique experience. So without further ado, we are going to bring out our first participant and our first wait. Our last first-person participant of 2020 and that is Mr. Doug Russell if you would join me out here on the stage gets our last first. Your last first welcome back Doug. We appreciate you for making it back out here again for the Tulsa lives and that over to you real quick and 1 1/2 musicians per episode is our average of new musicians so that means you have. I don't think you'd be considered the half, but we really do appreciate you for making it out here is many times he did this year. Thank you Rita hello everybody thank you guys so much for joining us this evening. Apparently guitar Dave who primarily plays guitar engaged in nobody's name has something to say on the microphone regulations to gabion to be a father to me that most of the people is watching.
