New Jersey Stage Issue 75 - Page 153

After the success of the first year , I realized we could do it as a webathon and reach the world , instead of just people in New Jersey . So year two we brought it online , as well as a live concert in NJ , and dubbed it “ Banding Together ”. As downloading music was still in its infancy at the time , that year anyone who donated to the SAA was sent several albums that had been donated by local artists . The first year we did a downloadable compilation was 10 years ago , and it was a collection of over 100 songs that encompassed some of the many artists that we played on BlowUpRadio . com during our first 10 years . We ’ ve done a compilation every year since then , and most years we do a mix of webathon and live concerts . This year , for obvious reasons , there will not be live concerts , but I am thrilled that thanks to live streaming technology we can have musicians performing live during our annual webathon remotely from their homes or rehearsal spaces .
