Are you missing your favorite local musicians' live performances? Are you worried they'll be in financial trouble because of all the cancelations and closures?

Two companies have come up with a way to help. The Brandgineers and Deep South Productions have teamed up to create "Streaming4Relief," a series of streamed concerts and performances.

So far, more than 20 acts have signed on to provide performances within CDC guildlines, including Frank Foster, Wayne Toups, Chubby Carrier, Parish County Line and many other acts.

"People across the nation will be able to tune in live to the Vimeo app using streaming devices such as Roku and Apple TV, smart phones, and other devices. Viewers will be able to purchase the streaming series by visiting streaming4relief.com," a release states.

The proceeds will be split among the various artists. Another portion of the proceeds will be given to various charities within Louisiana. If you want to support an artist directly you can enter a special code that is supplied on our website to ensure that the artist receives that particular portion of the proceeds.

Streaming 4 Relief will be announcing the streaming dates over the next few days.
