MADISON (WKOW) – A Madison band celebrated Bob Marley’s 76th birthday on Saturday evening at Sylvee – but without an audience.
Instead, the entire concert was broadcast live on Facebook.
Natty Nation usually hosts a birthday party for Marley in person, but not during the pandemic. So they organized the livestream concert and opened virtual tips to support the band and the people at the concert venue.
“The people behind the scenes are so important to the way the entire industry works,” said band member Aaron Konkol. “They are not thanked much – financially or otherwise. And none of this would be possible without them.”
Everyone who worked on the concert did so without getting paid. They will split up all donations.
