Claptone has raised the bar for music streaming with his new weekly series called “CLAPTONE in the Circus.” The stream will take place every Wednesday at 12PM PST (3PM EST) and run through August 5th for 12 weeks straight. Viewers can find the stream through his Facebook or YouTube channel.
The circus residency was an unexpected surprised to Claptone as he explains the orgins:
“In these trying times, I’ve often found myself going on long, isolated walks to appreciate the beauty of nature. It was on one of these scenic, afternoon journeys that I first stumbled upon a tiny family-run circus. The circus director told me about their struggle to pay the rent and buy food for the animals since the pandemic hit, as they couldn’t put on public shows. I decided not simply to donate food and money, but to play specially themed and carefully selected sets at this little circus, involving parts of their show, to bring joy to my friends and fans in sound and vision.”
In addition to that, Claptone will be raising money for the World Health Organization through these weekly series and he encourages any donations to support the medical workers.
Claptone is digging into his music archives for this residency and has prepared more than 40 exclusive Claptone orginals, remixes, and edits. Not only does the set take place in a circus, but it will feature circus acts as well. As a result, a unique stream is created with an atmosphere unlike any other. Claptone’s proactive and philanthropic efforts are an inspiration. Tune in weekly to support him and to watch the circus.
