Local Ladysmith couple Brianne and Drew Carnegie are putting on a livestream rock ’n’ roll concert for the community from their home studio dubbed, “Carnegie Hall” on Friday, April 17 at 8:00pm.
“Please grab a drink, light some candles, snuggle up with your love, and pretend like you’re watching us in a bar,” Brianne Carnegie said in a Facebook post.
The live stream will be made public from Carnegie’s Facebook page.
Drew will be playing bass and electric guitar for the show, and Brianne will be the lead vocalist, and play some piano along with her singing.
Their set list will include songs from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Janis Joplin, The Eagles, The Raconteurs, The Beatles, and more. The livestream will be made public from Carnegie’s Facebook page.
“I’m not saying that we will be perfect (it’s been years since we have performed), but I can guarantee that it will be fun,” Carnegie said.
The couple met in a cover band called Under the Covers 10 years ago. They later formed an original music badn, Queen Cobra. The last time they performed together was in 2015. They have performed individually since then, but this will be their first public performance together in five years.
Carnegie said she hopes their performance can bring some joy to the community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“There is something so beautiful about Facebook live videos that makes you feel a connection with each other,” Carnegie said. “And the world needs to feel connected more than ever right now.”
