“Side Door was instrumental in achieving something that we thought would be impossible this year- transforming our annual Dream Serenade benefit concert into a virtual show while still honoring its spirit of community and feeling of celebration for attendees.”

“My online shows at Side Door have been as real and connected and visceral and fun as any show I have ever done. It’s like the future just poured itself into our laps. Thanks Side Door, for helping me be with the people. It’s a freaking oasis, and one that I suspect will last far beyond our current moment.”

“Man I was so inspired. I needed it as much as people needed it. They were so into it. The community was unreal. So glad I was all in on this, you were 1000000% right about Zoom over IG or FB”

“Thanks to the Side Door team, I’ve still been able to reach my followers, play shows and make some money. No sketchy fees or catches. It’s time for musicians to drop the unsustainable, free stream trend. Luckily, Side Door built a way for us to do that.”
