Apostle Jones Band – Live Virtual Show
SMOKE AND MIRRORS featuring Apostle Jones and presented by The Center for Rock Research and American Music Tour, will usher in a renaissance of the concert experience in this new digital age, pairing technology and music in a premier theatrical fashion.
On Tuesday, July 28, 2020 at 9PM, we will debut a visually stunning and ephemeral world of fresh sounds.
We – like most artists, companies, studios, promoters – lost a lot of work but we have used the time to regroup creatively around making music. We’ve been jonesing for the connection we feel to audiences and refuse to accept this these days as a lost opportunity. This show is passion turned into purpose, set on reclaiming and elevating the live-music experience for virtual audiences during this Covid- era,
The event will be streamed live on Apostle Jones’ FB page as well as aggregated to various feeds and sites to accommodate non-facebook users.
**ABOUT the collaboration:**
Cleveland’s rust belt, Indie-Soul band, Apostle Jones teams up with Taste CLE’s founder Adam Bossin, to launch his newest concert series venture, American Music Tour. The show is produced by Cleveland’s grassroots recording/live-stream studio, The Center for Rock Research. The amped-up virtual show delivers virtual audiences an hour of a visually stunning 5-camera, theatrically lit and live music event not yet seen in 2020. The live stream event will feature new and original music with premier stage effects and lighting.
**DEBUT EP coming soon!**
Apostle Jones will follow-up the live-stream show, recording their debut EP at The Center for Rock Research at the end of next week, slated for a Fall 2020 release.
Easily accessible viewing of Smoke and Mirrors will be free and accessed online for all audiences on Apostle Jones’ official Facebook page and through the AmericanMusicTour.com website (for non-facebook users).
