Carol Leeming was the Host for the 2Funky Arts Virtual Concert Series a programme music band performances over 12 weeks July -Sept 2020 every Saturday evening online, due to the COVID 19 Lockdown. This was a very successful programme and the music bands were selected from across the East Midlands Regions, offering an excellent broad range of music genres from Funky Jazz, New Orleans style brass bands, RnB Soul & Rock. Th programme was broadcast on Youtube and Facebook simultaneously. This yielded phenomenal audience viewings figures, made up of committed previous fans and undoubtedly new audiences. This was significant added benefit in raising awareness fo the musical excellence of the region and ability for music bands, to maintain their ability to retain and extend their audiences, during the challenging period of the COVID 19 as they are unable to perform live in venues to a live audience. In addition new skills and learning in terms of performance and digital recording and mixing of sound and vision, clearly a needed development for music bands during the current pandemic.
