These events are co-produced by Indie Connect and Media Design Service. The studio is located within the Indie Connect World Headquarters. Ray, the owner of Media Design Service, has built a great stage environment to present artists at their best. We are located at 120 Donelson Pike Suite 201, Nashville TN 37214. We are across the street from the Jiffy Lube. Please use the entrance on Donelson Pike – not in the back alley.

We have a guitar and a Casio keyboard that you can use, or you can bring your own instrument to accompany you. Use of tracks is discouraged. The StreetJelly audience prefers live instrumentation, so live artists will git priority over those singing to tracks. Please be prepared with 2 songs, or 10 minutes of material. We will be switching out artists as quickly as we can to hold the audience, and host, Casey Cook, will interview the artist once they leave the stage and the next artist is being set up.

Only family friendly content is permitted. Make it like a show, so don’t be afraid to say a few words between songs. (We know you’ll do fine…)

The performance will be broadcast on There is a chat that runs during the performance. Sometimes it is about the artist and sometimes the fans go off in different directions. You will be able to see the feed and can interact. If you can provide me with some tidbits about yourself, goals as an artist, website address, reverb nation or soundcloud account, favorite food, etc., I can feed that into the chat as well. is an online busking site. If the fans like you they can buy tokens and tip you. 1 Token = $0.16. We have no way to pass this on to the artist. Tips  will be sent to Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation, a non-profit that helps schools without resources get musical instruments. By agreeing to perform, you agree to us donating to your tips to them.

If you have anyone you want to bring as audience, that is great. The room has seating for 15. Have them bring their laptops and they can interact with your new online fans.

This is still all very informal. Contact if you have any booking challenges or questions. Contact Ray@mediadesignservice for any technical issues.
