ONLINE PRIVATE CONCERTS
Bring friends and family together from across the city or around the world through the power of music and the use of technology - part house concert, part hootenanny - make your favourite requests & create heartfelt memories together without leaving home, putting on a mask or using sanitizer!
WHAT IS AN ONLINE PRIVATE CONCERT?
An online service presenting a private concert performance with David Leask broadcasting directly into your home. It's a mixture of cover tunes and originals - part house concert, part hootenanny, you can request your favourite songs in advance and David will also choose a few tunes spontaneously to keep it "in the moment".
HOW DO WE DO IT?
Concerts are hosted on the Zoom platform and you will be sent a private access link. The concert Zoom room opens 15 minutes beforehand for everyone to arrive and get a chance to say hello before the concert starts.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
The fee for a private concert is $50 +HST ($56.50) for each 30 minute segment. You can choose the length of your concert by adding additional segments. For example, two segments for a 1 hour concert or 3 segments for 90 mins which can be split into two 45 minute sets.
HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN ATTEND?
Every concert purchase comes with automatic access for 2 different household locations. You can easily add more people by adding extra households to your concert at the cost of $10 + HST ($11.30) for each 30 minute segment. For example, a 1 hour concert with 4 households (2 x 30 minute segment) and (2 x +2 households) would cost $140 + HST ($158.20).
CAN I BOOK AN ONLINE CONCERT FOR A LARGER CORPORATE EVENT?
For larger events such as conferences or corporate gatherings, contact David to discuss options.
WHAT EQUIPMENT & SOFTWARE DO I NEED?
To enjoy the concert at the best quality it is recommended that you have high speed internet. The concert can be streamed on everything from a smartphone, tablet, laptop or smart TV, whatever is your preference! It is also advisable to download the free Zoom software to your device if you have not already done so.
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO SET UP MY COMPUTER FOR OPTIMUM SOUND?
It’s advisable to have audio from your computer hooked up to a home stereo or equivalent amplification to help make the sound as close to a live gig as possible. Even a bluetooth speaker can be better than built in computer speakers.
THAT ALL SOUNDS GREAT, HOW DO I MAKE IT HAPPEN?
Using the order buttons, choose how many 30 minute units you want to order and add on extra households beyond the basic two if you need them. When you place the order use the notes section to request your date and time preference and we'll do our best to accommodate. Also, place up to three special song requests per 30 minute segment. Other songs will be chosen spontaneously by David.
Please order well in advance to ensure availability and select your preferred time slot in the notes section when you place your order. You'll be sent a confirmation email with all the details and the zoom link will be sent on the day of the concert.
“What a fantastic idea to have your own private LIVE concert from the comfort of your own living room during these difficult times. Our concert linked 4 households (22-74 yrs old!) and everyone loved the selection of the music and the flow of the evening." Pam M.
