Conference Kickoff with Music City!

Online

On the last Friday of every month at 4pm Music City Hit Factory streams a series we call Music City Lockdown Sessions on Twitch (twitch.tv/musiccitytv) featuring local Bay Area artists. We handpick a group of performers every month to give you a curated live music experience in which you can watch, listen to, and chat with these amazing local musicians. Over the last 16 weeks, we have had over 60 artists on our show. From pop and country to Hip-hop and Jazz, they have done it all. We put this series on every month to give support to local musicians. It not only gives artists a platform to showcase their music while concerts are scarce, it also gives gigging artists a way to make extra money, since most musicians have had their incomes cut due to COVID-19. This month we are collaborating with West Coast Songwriters and they are taking over our Lockdown Sessions for their Kick-Off Concert! Tune in to interact, chat, and listen to your new favorite artists. Featuring Megan Slankard Anthony Arya The Bell Brothers
