Jennifer Hartswick & Brendan Bayliss Announce ‘A One Night Affair’ Livestream Concert
Jennifer Hartswick of the Trey Anastasio Band and Umphrey’s McGee‘s Brendan Bayliss will join forces for an upcoming livestream concert. “Brendan Bayliss & Jennifer Hartswick: A One Night Affair” airs next Friday, February 19 at 9:30 p.m. ET/6:30 p.m. PT via Mandolin.
Hartswick has a long history of performing with Umphrey’s McGee and Bayliss. Jennifer first sat-in with UM on covers of The Lounge Lizards’ “Big Heart” and Bill Withers’ “Ain’t No Sunshine” at Higher Ground in Burlington, Vermont on September 11, 2005.
“Brendan Bayliss & Jennifer Hartswick: A One Night Affair” will originate from Big Room Studio, a.k.a. Bayliss’ basement. No replays will be available as the performance will only air live. The pair announced the livestream with witty, faux personal ads:
Seeking: Jovial, witty, unemployed vocalist and trumpeter interested in a night of warm companionship, spirited revelry, and ridiculous banter. Must also be willing to play a slew of great songs, written by people other than me. Pluses include the celebration of Michael Bolton’s entire catalog and a desire to consume a bacchanalian amount of cabernet. Sticklers unwilling to agree that we only have time for “one more song” need not apply. – BB
Looking For: Casual, brief, one-night stand (and/or sit) with adequately talented singer-songwriter. Seeking kindred spirit in agreement that 2021 is certain to be a better vintage. Willing to tolerate an emo jamband guitarist, provided we don’t have to play any of his songs. COVID-free a must, stable internet a plus. – JH
The pay-per-view livestream costs $14.99. Head to Mandolin to pre-order.
