The Jack J Hutchinson Band has launched ‘Bootleg Series‘ – a new collection of live recordings and special performances that will provide their fans with digital content over the coming months.
Volume 1 features a 12 song set recorded on their recent ‘Who Feeds The Wolf?’ tour at Esquires, Bedford.
Hutchinson comments: “As the world comes to terms with the impact of coronavirus, we need to make sure there is still some positivity. Music can provide that. The band were absolutely cooking on the recent tour, and fortunately we captured a lot of it.”
Explaining the impact of the coronavirus on the band, he adds: “We are very fortunate in that we had made it through 10 shows out of 13 on this leg of the tour, but the impact will still be felt. We are delaying the second leg of the tour to October, but that could still mean 6 months without income for the band. But everyone’s health is the priority – the band’s and our fans – and hopefully this new Bootleg Series will help fill the gap.”
WHO FEEDS THE LOCK DOWN? ONLINE TOUR
Jack J Hutchinson has also launched a new online tour. The series of shows, which are live on his Facebook page on Saturday evenings over the next three months, will see Hutchinson take requests for songs from his various albums, including last year’s critically acclaimed ‘Who Feeds The Wolf?’ and his previous solo album ‘Paint No Fiction’.
The run will also include a series of full live shows filmed on his recent ‘Who Feeds The Wolf?’ tour being ‘premiered’ on the new Jack J Hutchinson Band TV channel on YouTube, with fans able to join in via an online chat on the channel.
Hutchinson comments: “This is a great way of staying connected with one another over the coming months. It’s very easy for people to become isolated and feel cut off from the world. But hopefully we can keep my fan base entertained during this testing time. We had over 2K people tuning in to the first event and it was an absolute blast! Let’s keep on rockin’!”
Fans can buy a ticket for the tour via the WHO FEEDS THE LOCK DOWN? TOUR PASS. Although all the shows are free, this ‘virtual ticket’ will allow fans to give a voluntary donation.
“I’m aware that not everyone can afford to pay for gig tickets right now, and so didn’t want put my content behind a pay wall. This way, fans can donate if they want to, but can still enjoy the music even if they are short on funds. We will get through this together!”
