The show must go online: musician Andy Muscat live streams gig during Coronavirus lockdown

Portsmouth musician Andy Muscat live streamed his ‘Sunday Funday’ gig online for fans stuck at home due to the Coronavirus lockdown. 

Despite the UK’s lockdown due to COVID-19, the lead singer of COAX took to Facebook to live-stream his gig in the hope the online show would bring people together. 

The 80 min live stream last night hoped to cheer fans up who had been messaging Muscat and still wanted hear his music.

Muscat said: “It’s quite a stressful time for a lot of people and me playing a few songs online for an hour allows people to forget about that for a bit, I’m more than happy to do it.

“It’s nice to see friends and family commenting saying that they were dancing and singing along.”

Streaming from his lounge, the video was viewed internationally as a way to still connect fans. 

He added: “We’ve got some friends in America that were tuning in, they hosted watching parties through Facebook and I saw that their friends were commenting on those as well which was nice to see.

“It brought everyone together and it was nice to see people chatting in the comments and watching it together.”

The live stream received a great reaction with over 1000 views. 

“It’s quite nice to not take it too seriously and just let other people enjoy watching some live music. 

“Where people can’t get out and go and enjoy that, it gives them something else to think about and look forward to. 

“If each week it’s bringing in enough people and as long as people want me to do it, I’ll do it!”
