Busking, playing music in a public forum for gratuities, has now officially arrived on the internet. Last night, August 17th, 2012, all the way from Guam, we had our first musician perform live from his webcam. Teo_doro was awesome!
StreetJelly.com had only been live for about a day. Somehow, word-of-mouth from Nashville and Knoxville TN had reached Teo. The Nashville transplant found the site, signed up, and just started playing. That is as spontaneous as it gets.
Things went well, all systems checked out. Actually, we were amazed that the sound and video quality was quite well from Teo’s stock Gateway laptop with built-in webcam and built-in mic.
We can’t say enough how pleased we were of the outcome. Our vision of bringing real LIVE entertainment for everyone – and helping musicians earn money for their craft – is still alive and well!
