Music leading into the event

“What is KONA Stream? It is my personal station I run from my home. I play mainstream pop and rock music from the 60s, 70s, & 80s along with soundtracks, novelty songs, mash-ups and light sprinkling of country. My current library has 13,000+ tracks in it!”

CHRISTOV KOHNKEChristov Kohnke (13:30 – 14:30)

“Hi, I love to sing and play the guitar. I play pop music of all styles from all ages. I play in real life and find playing in SL a lot of fun. I love to play lead guitar too so don’t be surprised if you hear me soloing over myself using a looping device that I use to record myself in the moment and then play over that. I pride myself in all of my playing be live and in the moment versus pre-recorded in any way.”

ObleeOblee (14:30 – 15:30)

“Recently featured on The Drax Files: World Makers episode 25, , Oblee is said to be ‘several disparate musical personalities behind one looper and a pile of instruments.’

“His first album Wow Bob Wow, while produced in the physical world, was financed entirely from his incoming through gigs and sets in Second Life.”

Amforte ClarityAMForte Clarity (15:30 – 16:30)

“A storyteller, AMForte has captivated audiences with her tales of life and travels, experiences of being a Canadian living in the US and her daily challenges. She’s a singer/songwriter with an amazing voice and warmth of character that will make you think of her as more of a friend!”
