We didn't know how lucky we were back then
Naturally, I am drawn to your music stories. I know COVID played a big roll in musicians embracing TikTok. My acoustic trio had out first gig schedule the week Covid shut everything down. Including live music.
One of the guys in the band has younger kids and they told him to get on TikTok. He did and he now has over 80,000 followers. When our trio got back together in January, he said we should get on TikTok. I was clueless that music was so popular on TikTok. Anyway, we are closing in on 6000 followers already. And our last livestream had over 27k views. Plus we made $157 in tips. Not bad for sitting in a garage playing to a phone for an hour and a half.
There is band in San Francisco called Sunny & The Black Pack. They have over a half million TikTok followers. All they do now is livestream four days per week. They no longer do live gigs. Things have certainly changed.
