Our Founder

The Inspiration: Brothers Rick and Tom Bray like to enjoy craft beer and local live music. One summer evening, they went out to do just that. They drove to the first place, only to find an empty stage, then another place... empty stage. "There's got to be a solution!", they said, "Musicians want gigs. Venues have stages. Let's make it happen!"

How Stages.Live grows local live music ecosystems everywhere, and creates the perfect ad platform for local markets

Required SEC Reg CF Legal Disclosures

Three free portals working together.

We're doing for local live music what craft beer has done across the country.
Get started and watch your local music ecosystem grow!

Stages.Live brings Community, Musicians & Venues Together. Our patent pending method is the secret sauce. Stages.Live makes it easy for artists and venues to book gigs, which in turn fills empty stages and gives new opportunities to experienced artists and aspiring young artists alike. Booked events are automatically promoted in the Community Portal, where people find events, listen to local original and cover music, support artists through tips, and follow artists and venues. 

Each portal feeds off of the others to grow the entire local music scene in your hometown, and communities everywhere.

Seeding the Growth with our City-to-City Launch Tour

Beginning this spring, we'll launch our city-to-city tour to seed the growth, similar to the manner Yelp, Uber and Lyft began. Each stop is a week long event designed to support local artists and the venues where they play. Events take place in restaurants, bars, breweries and coffeeshops all over town. Regional organic growth sprouts out from there.

(exact timing of each city launch will soon be determined)

“As Chairman of the Greater Eureka Springs Chamber of Commerce, I can’t wait to see Stages.Live launched in our community! The whole Arts & Entertainment scene of our historic tourist town will go quickly to the next level! Music will literally fill the streets, the parks, the springs and pubs and restaurants and venues! I can see the entire economy being enhanced!”

Mike Seals

Eureka Springs, Arkansas has more than a million tourists each year, and is featuring Stages.Live in soon to be released 2021 Visitor Guide as the app for live music and events. 

Stages.Live's method brings booking local live music and community involvement out of the dark ages.

When industries first move from a manual system to a computerized one they typically just digitize the old manual methods, leaving all the old inefficiencies in place. This industry has been stuck in this early stage for more than thirty years! 

Stages.Live's patent pending methods flip the age-old methods, and make it easy for both venues and artists to book gigs. This results in venues expanding stage times, it makes it easier for venues thinking about having live music to get started, and it creates more opportunities for seasoned artists and aspiring young artists; in a phrase, it grows your local live music scene. Expect live music around town from lunch hours to late night.

Tip artists while at an event or while listening to original and cover music on our Local Musician Radio Player.

Do the big-tech digital platforms really feel local?

The big-tech mobile apps, they may reach local people, but are they local? Do you feel like you're supporting your hometown when you use them? Stages.Live promotes your community, it entertains your community, and it supports your local artists and the venues where they perform. 

Stages.Live is all about Local... and the opportunity is sizable!

App Ads & Sponsorships: It's our revenue model.

Stages.Live creates a unique local mobile advertising platform. An app like Yelp focuses on places, Stages.Live focuses on local things to do.

Stages.Live offers ad agencies and/or community magazines a franchise opportunity that grants local market ad sellers control over a percentage of ad impression space on our mobile platform in their region. Our company retains ad impression space in each market for direct sales of regional and national advertising. Google's AdMob mobile advertising tools are used to fill remnant ad space.

We curate fresh local "things to do" content each day. This keeps people coming back, and our Local Musician Radio Player gets them to stay. 

Listen at home. Listen in your car. Listen anywhere. Stages.Live streams local artists' YouTube videos, allowing the listener to enjoy originals and covers from artists within their own community, or a community they choose to explore. 

No other app organizes streaming music videos by local artists, and promotes community support of local artists like Stages.Live. You can even tip artists when listening.

Covid-19 and Stages.Live: Version 3 is Now Version 1.

Stages.Live version 1 was in initial beta testing and we were preparing for a May 2020 launch, but Covid put a halt to those plans. During this period, we've increased our investment in development and kept the developers busy, so our spring 2021 launch includes features that were initially planned for versions 2 & 3. Development is now ahead of our initial roadmap.

We're helping artists make a living doing what they love, and bounce back after covid-19

In addition to getting tips and more gigs, we have a musician affiliate program that let's musicians sell advertising impressions on the app. When advertisers are acquired by musicians, they participate in our simple multi-level marketing affiliate program; artists can make extra money, and with good effort, a good living. It's a sales force made up of local artists contacting people they know in their communities, and earning commissions, supported by a team of key employees.

This demo video focuses on why both venues and artists want to use Stages.Live as soon as they see it, our patent pending methods. It's a virtual live demo led by co-founder Rick Bray, not a marketing video.
