On May 1st, at 7PM Eastern/6 Central, we will be doing our first ever Facebook Live Q&A session with VNUE's CEO, Zach Bair. Here is his message to you:
Dear VNUE, fans, investors, followers, musicians, and music lovers:
Music is my life. Literally, every facet of what I do is about music. Since I was a little kid, driving my mother nuts on the piano, and even to this day, I still play and record music. Along the way, I have been very fortunate enough to combine two things I love very much - technology and music - and the goal in mind has always been to empower artists and to create new revenue streams in music. Three years ago I took the helm of VNUE and brought in the team and technology to *really* realize that dream to the fullest.
Many of you no doubt follow VNUE's press releases, and our rather dry and mundane corporate filings with the SEC. Yes, we are a publicly traded company (OTC:VNUE - clever symbol, right?).
What many if not most of you do not know, however, is the story behind VNUE, and the passionate and small group of guys and gals behind this company. Most of us are musicians (some platinum-selling), and many of us have had successful companies valued in the hundreds of millions of dollars. We are normal people, not "suits," who have come together because of our passion in this space. Normal, yet experienced and driven.
Yet we are all here and grounded because, even though VNUE is small and under-valued (hint: great time to invest), we believe that VNUE has tremendous potential, and we are in it for the long haul. What drives us is the desire to change the "status quo" and move the needle forward in an industry (music) that is reluctant to change. We have the team, desire, technology, guts and fortitude to make that happen. I cannot tell you how thrilled I am to be leading this charge, and how proud I am to have this amazing team around me.
This LIVE Q and A will give me the opportunity to tell you about VNUE, our people, and our products, and how much we believe in what we are doing, with our set.fm and DiscLIve.net "instant live" recorded products, and importantly, our Soundstr.com "music recognition technology," and how we hope to reshape the music licensing world and to ensure each and every rights holder gets paid for their work. I want to share this passion with you, and I hope to take some of the mystery out of what it is that we actually do.
So, on May 1st, at 6PM Central time/7PM Eastern, please join me for my first ever Facebook Live broadcast, right here on the VNUE page, at the end of which I will take a few questions. In the meantime I will encourage you to visit www.vnue.com, and our brands www.set.fm and www.disclive.net.
