Interview with Mark Kaye of Hear Now Live


Mark Kaye is the founder of Hear Now Live, a Boston based company that provides additional revenue sources for local bands. Hear Now Live promotes shows at several local Boston area clubs. According to their website, "[Hear Now Live is] a one stop shop for a local band or an up and coming national band. On top of offering Bands the opportunity to play a HNL concert that will be promoted correctly and be band friendly, our shows attract true music fans, and the vibe created by HNL is unmatched."

The Deli: Tell me about Hear Now Live. How long has it been going on?

Mark Kaye: I have been in and out of the music industry for 20 years but I started HNL 3 years ago. It started as a way to get local music out to people faster by recording the shows and burning them on the spot. It turned into a full service Promotions and booking agency shortly after that. We try to create a community of music fans and have them always want to come back for more. We ask the musicians to believe in the each show and to help us create a positive environment so that there friends and fans will be happy and want to see them again or come to another Hear Now Live event.



Acoustic Styles at Enormous Room - Cambridge 12.06

One could make a strong case that the Cambridge and Boston area is filled with a diversity of talented musicians and songwriters…and that there are too few venues in which that talent can find a home. Tony Lovell, a talented singer/songwriter himself, is waging active war against that notion. He has been organizing acoustic showcases featuring some of that talent in rooms that don’t usually see such fare. At first, the dance club Middlesex became a forum for Cambridge singer/songwriters to strut their stuff. Now, he has brought that vibe and vision to The Enormous Room in Central Square. This Sunday evening, beginning at 6PM, a group of local songwriters will perform free of charge in a space that is usually reserved for DJs and electronic music.

Sunday’s lineup will feature a diversity of acts such as the ever-hilarious Joe Kowan, the heartfelt duo of Jeremy Ross and Cilla Bonnie, and yours truly. David Owczarek and Tony Lovell himself will round out the bill. Come join us for an evening of original songs in an original space.

Sunday, December 6, 2009, 6-9PM| 569 Massachusetts Ave.| Central Square, Cambridge, MA

Should be a kick-ass show! The best thing about it is that Will Dailey and pals have been posting funny little youtube videos to promote the show.The videos feature people getting punched in the face (gasp!) and Dailey in light-up musical novelty antlers (aw!). The video at the top was my favorite one. Check out their Festival Holidad channel HERE.
