Creating revenue streams through branded consumable merch
Artist Branded Coffee
Our mission has always been to help music artists develop alternate sources of revenue beyond the traditional record and ticket sales. With this in mind, we launched www.Concerts.Cafe – a livestream concert portal and artist-branded e-commerce shop.
Here, music artists can easily launch their own brand of gourmet organic coffee or tea and stream their concert performances virtually. These livestreams can be either monetized through ticket sales or broadcast for free in an effort to collect subscriber data and to promote coffee sales.
The coffee is available for both, one-time purchase and as an ongoing subscription, providing a steady, reliable income stream for artists.
These are just a few artists for whom we launched branded coffees:
Bootsy Collins is one of the all-time great funk and R&B bassists / singer / bandleaders / music producers; as well as being recognized by Rolling Stone Magazine as the number four bassist of all time. From 1969 to 1971, the group functioned as James Brown’s backup band and was dubbed the J.B.’s. In 1972, Bootsy joined George Clinton’s Parliament/Funkadelic.
Myron McKinley, of Los Angeles, CA. is a pianist, producer, songwriter, programmer, and film score composer for large box office films and television shows. Myron is currently the keyboardist and musical director with Earth Wind and Fire. A captivating musician, he is known for his contagious on stage and, as a true perfectionist working with the very best in the industry. He is currently the music director and keyboardist for legendary ensemble Earth Wind & Fire, having also been on tour with the late Whitney Houston, Chaka Khan and many others.
Rebecca has been described by many to have a chameleon-like quality to her voice, where she is able to deliver each song in a unique way, yet she has been blessed with a sound unlike anyone else. She has performed with some of the most sought-after musicians all over the world, and her versatility has allowed her many unique opportunities to perform: Rebecca has been touring with the Queen of percussion, Sheila E. since 2017 and most recently appeared in the Emmy-nominated show, “Let’s Go Crazy: The GRAMMY Salute to Prince” that aired on CBS in April of 2020; She also sang background vocals for Sir Elton John at the 2020 Academy Awards
No Upfront Costs and Full Transparency
We make it simple and hassle-free for our artists to start selling their own branded gourmet coffee on www.Concerts.Cafe. There are no up-front costs or sign-up fees and no need to carry any inventory. We take care of everything and drop-ship orders as they come in.
Depending on how the artist chooses to price their coffee, a typical revenue split would be 60% going to the artist. For example, an artist would get $12 out of every coffee bag sold that’s priced at $20.
To ensure full transparency each artist is given access to their own vendor dashboard where they can track their sales, commissions and generate reports.
