Virtual Live Band Rocks Second Life

Virtual Live Band plays in Second Life

I’ve always liked the live performances in Second Life ever since I first found them. Usually It’s one singer or a couple of people playing live from one place. I recently found a unique live event with a live band. They consist of 5 members from 3 countries and 5 different locations. One plays from Germany and another from UK with the rest playing from the U.S. They use a program to sync up called ninjam and then send the stream over to SL.

The majority of their songs are original but they do covers also. You can check out their website and find out more about them. Be sure to check out the days they will be playing so you can check them out!. Sign up for their group, “VLB group members”, in SL and find out instantly when they will be playing. You shouldn’t miss this band because they are good and really rock SL!

The live musicians and singers of Second Life

I posted about live entertainment in another post, here, and wanted to expand on that post with some names of good performers on second life. Remember you can find any event in the find/events window under Live Music category! Check out my previous post for other ways of finding live music.

Frogg Marlowe

A good singer who has been on second life for awhile is Frogg Marlowe. He plays guitar and sometimes the piano. He also writes his own songs as well. Some of his songs were inspired by second life. When he plays solo he sounds very good and I am sure you will enjoy it! He will sometimes be accompanied with his friend, Jaycatt Nico, on the piano.

When Jaycatt and Frogg play together it sounds really great. You can usually find them on Fridays from 7 to 9 SL time at “The Gathering.” You Should try to catch them at least once to experience what great artists we have in second life. Jaycatt plays piano masterfully and listening to him play alone is amazing.

Juel Resistance

Juel Resistance is one of those singers you should really listen to. She has a great voice and gives fantastic performances. She is a singer and a song writer. She plays guitar while she sings and has such a great personality. She was one of the first singers I have ever heard on Second life. She’s the reason I have been so interested in live music in second life. She also has her own place at “The Living Room” where she plays sometimes.

I have some other favorite performers also but I’ll write about them later.

Live Entertainment in Second Life

Live musicians in Second Life

I have been attending many live entertainment since I started in this world. Such a unique experience when you can attend a live performance from some great musicians and singers! When I was looking through the events one day I saw a live musician playing so I had to check it out. The setting was a lake with floaters for people to lay down on in front of the stage. Don’t remember the name of the place but I do remember the great music. Now these events are all free and they only ask for a tip if possible. I was so entertained that I gave a nice tip after the show. I usually like listening to the regular music that gets played through a sim so once I found this I tried to attend as many performances I can.

Some performances get posted in the events but some will not be there. Recently the live music category was added to the events find window so it’s easier to find these events now. There is also a group called, “Live Music Enthusiasts”, which will have announcements before a live event will happen. You can be teleported to the area by asking in the group also. Each performance can be in different areas and sometimes can be at a grand opening like I am attending right now. I’ll post about that after the event finishes in another post.

If you get a chance to attend these events you really should! I am sure you will enjoy listening and experiencing something live with others around the world. I don’t get out much cause of work so this is a nice way of having fun while I work or just relaxing. It will never be the same thing as a first life concert but I can’t get out every single day to a concert. In second life there is always a live performance somewhere at some time each day. Usually in the evening, SL time, you will find the best events to attend.

I also found out that some of these performers are available for bookings also. So if you want some crowds this might be a good way of getting people to your place. Don’t know how much a booking would be, though.
