Quarantined Unplugged Acoustic Concerts of Kindness

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

What is Q.U.A.C.K.?

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

Why are you doing 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 can 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 the cost/catch?

A Q.U.A.C.K. is setup as a "pay-what-you can" performance - via PayPal. Each Q.U.A.C.K has a three (3) song maximum.

Also, scheduling could be a potential challenge (as this situation we're in could change by the day), but I'll do my best to make it work!

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.

I'm interested. Where do we begin?

It's an easy, three-step process:

  1. Pick the three songs you want to hear

  2. Send gratuities via PayPal.

  3. At the scheduled time, join the meeting and enjoy the music!
