Quality Unplugged Acoustic Concerts of Kindness

Also known as Q.U.A.C.K. ;-)

What is the story behind Q.U.A.C.K.?

Quarantined Unplugged Acoustic Concerts of Kindness started as a way for me (Brian Johnson - @braimee of @7MinSec) to spread some joy to you and your family during the pandemic - by performing a personalized mini vocal+guitar concert over the Internet.

Why did you do this?

Early in the quarantine days of 2020, I was reading about the folks in Italy who sing to each other on balconies while in quarantine. They inspired me to sing a few songs on Facebook live the following evening, and the experience was phenomenal. I felt like I was in the same room with the family and friends I've been missing so dearly!

That made me wonder: how could I share this experience with other people who would enjoy a live mini music concert over the Internet via Zoom meeting?

Boom. Q.U.A.C.K was born.

What's happening with Q.U.A.C.K. today?

Right now we've adjusted the Q in Q.U.A.C.K. to stand for Quality, since quarantine is over (kinda). I'm working to create some pre-recorded and live Q.U.A.C.K. music to YouTube and Twitch and do some periodic live streams. I'll update this page and Twitter when that finally happens.

Can you actually sing?

Yeah, I sing in an acoustic duo called Sweet Surrender and sometimes write jingles for card games and juice shops. And other times I dedicate songs to malware or write theme songs for podcasts.
