Sitting in his living room bar at a grand piano, Phil Vassar will make fans feel like they’re hanging at a retro piano bar beginning Tuesday, August 25 at 7 p.m. CST. That’s when the award-winning singer-songwriter will begin a new virtual series, Piano Bar, a one hour, bi-weekly live-streamed show, where Vassar will cover well-known, beloved artists such as Billy Joel, Elton John, James Taylor, Jackson Brown, Kenny Rogers and more. Vassar will also take fan requests via social media. Piano Bar tickets are $15 or $35 with a t-shirt HERE.
“I really think fans will love this Piano Bar series,” says Vassar. “The piano bar type venue is where I come from – it’s my roots. I even had my own bar back when I was getting my start. It’s going to be really fun to cover so many of these great artists and heros.” Piano Bar episodes will be recorded and selections will be used for a cover album slated to be released in early 2021.
The virtual concert series will be streamed on Single Music. The platform’s player is HTML-5, which allows fans to watch from their mobile phones, computers, and cast/share the stream to their TVs over Apple TV or Chromecast for an even better viewing and listening experience. Viewers can chat with other fans, view merchandise, and buy music during the show just like they would normally do at an in-person concert.
