BROOKLYN, NY (March 25, 2020) – The recent unfortunate happenings across the world have forced the cancelations of live shows all across the globe, but that isn’t stopping some musicians from reaching out to beloved fans. Gangstagrass is, of course, among these kindhearted artists, and decided to explore a new platform to connect with devotees foregoing the traditional Facebook Live. They chose Twitch for joining the live streaming phenomenon sweeping the nation, and so far it has definitely been a rousing success.

The band, known for being extremely down-to-earth and engaged with fans, chose a brilliant site that allows watchers to not only communicate with them, but also with each other in a virtual chatroom while the artists perform. This added touch has been a blessing as the live content has absolutely garnered the need for conversation. Live feeds range from normal acoustic shows to cooking lessons, software tutorials, and even a new series called “Kick the Can”.

The “Kick the Can” sequence is a phenomenal invention born from the members of Gangstagrass being stuck apart in isolation during this dark time. The idea is that each member on their respective Twitch evening will create a song portion live, and then the band will sandwich them together to create a masterpiece at the end. The first segment with Rench went swimmingly, and fans are waiting with bated breath for the next.

Anyone can be a part of the growing Gangstagrass family, and witness the song creation live at 9pm every night by following the band on Twitch at

Melodie Yvonne

Melodie Yvonne, lead photographer and owner of Photographic Melodie, grew up in the small southern Indiana town of North Vernon. She picked up her first camera at the age of 5, and was immediately hooked. By the age of 15 she began to turn every trip, even just to the local park, into a fantasy scene of her own imagination, and started mentoring with many local professionals. Melodie received an Associates of Applied Science in Visual Technologies majoring in Photography from Ivy Tech in 2002 after studying under acclaimed professors and many other masters in the field.

Melodie’s main focus has always been music photography. Growing up listening to many amazing musicians inspired her dream to create visual images that made people feel the way they do when listening to music. Her goal was to help people SEE the music.

Melodie has done numerous jobs around the country ranging from working for bands to being the official photographer on many southern Indiana Poker Runs. Her specialties are in nature, music, and candid event photography. She published her first print work, a collection of images & poetry, in 2011, and has since published many more print works. Melodie currently acts as owner & lead photographer at Photographic Melodie, House Photographer for Purdue Theatre, and Tour Photographer for multiple Billboard Charts topping bands as well as freelance work with many other media outlets, venues, and musicians.
