During their live performance, the band gave away gift cards online that they had purchased from local businesses. Vinoski Winery in Belle Vernon was one of the local businesses that sponsored the event.
Viewers were able to determine the song list with requests submitted via Facebook and had the opportunity to win gift cards during the live show when prompted to enter a key word and comment on their computer.
‘Eclectic Acoustics’ is a dynamic acoustic duo from Pittsburgh, that plays an eclectic set list of popular songs from the 70's through today's top hits. The duo averages over 130 shows a year, and is in rotation at 35+ venues throughout the Pittsburgh, Ohio, and West Virginia areas. The talented duo, Mark Graham and Jaime Gaglia, thanked everyone for tuning in, and said they appreciate all the support.
“As far as doing these virtual shows, we much rather prefer a live audience, but we’re happy to do these virtual shows in order to help out the local businesses and to create some positive vibes during this crisis,” said Graham.
