When live music shut down in New York City, Kenny Friedman (a vet from the local music scene) and Tommy Williams (TheHooters, Patty Smyth, Debbie Gibson) immediately started livestreaming to Facebook. After a full year - 52 weekly shows - we've had an amazing ride, with all-request concerts consistently lasting 5 hours on average and hundreds of new friends from across the US and Canada (and a few around the globe). We have outgrown Facebook and our second season will begin on Twitch on March 18, 2021. Who knows where this may take us? Kenny is aka "KennysProgRockJukeBox" on Twitch, and has been doing three Progressive Rock shows a week on Twitch since October 2020. We've called our show "Kenny & Tommy's Live Jukebox" since the beginning. Friends and fans have come to be known as "Jukesters", so that seemed the obvious name for the our channel. Wouldn't you like to be a Jukester too? Kenny & Tommy's Live Jukebox

Panel Content Venmo @playmyrequest We are professional musicians. We make our living playing music, whether it be on Twitch or IRL. We don’t have other jobs, so playing music is how we put food on the table and pay the bills, therefore we prioritize the requests of the viewers who support us. We do not get a base salary from Twitch, so financial support from our viewers is vital for us to continue streaming. There are occasional opportunities for viewer requests, but the best way to ensure we play your song is by supporting the musicians/entertainers who are putting in their time and talents into performing for you. Support hard-working performers. It feels good and it’s good for ya! We are grateful for EVERYONE who watches the streams and participates in the chat.
