What is Art?

March 14 @ 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm

Maker Radio 94.5 FM is an independent radio station in Chico, CA. Maker Radio is committed to offering local musicians a music industry ecosystem, including low-barrier-to-entry performance opportunities, radio airplay, live recording, and studio recording opportunities, high-quality video production of performing artists’ performances, promotional materials development, and more.

To this end, Maker Radio hosts an open-mic/open-stage (titled “What Is Art?”) each Thursday, complete with a full drum kit, bass guitar, acoustic and electric guitars, full-size electric piano keyboard, microphones, and more, so that up-and-coming musicians can easily have their first public performance in a welcoming environment, on a professional stage with high-end sound and stage lighting, and where the crowd will cheer you on, no matter how well you perform.

Each performance is recorded with 4 video cameras, and 24 tracks of audio by our all-volunteer sound engineers and videography team. The resulting footage and audio recordings are then mixed and edited into a series of dynamic performance videos, which we publish each week on our Maker Radio Youtube channel (found HERE). Our all-volunteer videography team routinely puts in dozens of hours per month editing and mixing these audio and video recordings. Since the event began, (currently in its 41st consecutive week) we have published an average of 8 videos per week. Our YouTube channel currently has just over 300 performance videos from our weekly “What Is Art?” event, with 12,392 views and 384 hours of total watch time!!
