In the depths of the great potluck ban of 2020, Jason Camp and The Posers recorded a live basement session on Haida Gwaii. Showcasing some new songs on a boring afternoon, some of the lost chronicles of Jonny Begel and his quest to return to his motherland, and some reminders that its good to focus on trying to smile as the world crumbles around you. So lean back and settle in, and join the Haida trio as they help you waste another afternoon.
We’re going to host a Livestream show at a local studio. We will have 2 local radio stations (100.5FM and CJSF 90.1FM), that will broadcast the event. Our goal is to provide other young artists with an opportunity to showcase their talent at a local level. We will have 6 different artists perform a 10-minute set and they will be interviewed by 100.5 FM after their performance. This will help the young local artists to get their name out there and will help with their branding and marketing as there getting press.
Have you been chomping at the bit to get cameras rolling on your next film project, but feel bogged down by isolation and public health guidelines?
