StreetJelly in Two or Three Paragraphs

Often businesses are asked to describe themselves in two or three paragraphs.  I guess this length is about the size of text that someone is willing to read.  Usually, the descriptions come out sounding like typical corporate drivel and you end up counting all the horrendous buzzwords: best-in-class, customer-driven, paradigm-shift, … oh the insanity!  So here it goes, sit back and be dazzled. is online busking: video streaming LIVE musicians performing by webcam for tips.  That’s it, that’s all it is.  …Dang, 2.8 paragraphs left to fill.

Ok, here are the nitty gritty details.  Musicians, singer / songwriters, vocalists, and all types perform in their living rooms, basements, where ever with a computer and webcam.  Music Lovers watch and chat with the artists, much like in a chat room.  The viewers can purchase virtual tokens which they use as currency to tip the musicians.  Viewers can also use their tokens towards awards, Rocker Pins, to give to the artists.  The musicians then cash out their tokens for real money, sent via PayPal.

That was a tedious paragraph, now for the good stuff.  StreetJelly is about people, musicians actually. Take LanaEve, for instance, who performs often on StreetJelly.  She’s a teenage prodigy from Nashville.  Despite this sounding like a cliche, she really has the voice of an angel.  Want to see the most genuine happy smile?  Say “hello” to her and drop her a token.  Then there’s Maestro from Seattle, an accomplished musician and music teacher from School of Rock.  Maestro will draw you in with his soothing piano and guitar originals.  Before you know it, time has flown by and your day is much better.  There’s also folk music duo Rick and Denise called Amaranth. They put on weekly shows from their home for friends and family around the country.  You will feel like you are with them eating warm milk and cookies when witnessing their “house concerts.”

There are so many more stories, but no room left in our paragraph rule.  But you get the idea, StreetJelly brings you in touch with real people, in real time, in all its raw musical goodness.  Try that with a digital download!
