Since the start of their live career, the boys of exPorter have played several shows at one of Santa Barbara's most iconic music locations - Jensen Guitar & Music Shop. As the boys thought about a 2020/21 Winter show, they realized the pandemic would force a change of plans.
So with no option for a normal gig, exPorter dreamt up the "Jensen's Project". Instead of making it about a band, why not call attention to the shop itself?
Like so many small businesses, Jensen's has been crushed by COVID-19. Retail sales obviously slumped due to limited customers. Lessons by their instructors also had to stop. And the small stage the boys have called their home away from home was shut down, which not only meant no live show, it also meant no Bandcamp program and no open mics for local artists.
exPorter: Sort of Live at Jensen's includes four tracks recorded February 2021 at Jensen Guitar & Music Shop in Santa Barbara, CA. Tracks include live versions of Carsick and Cuck'd as well as new cuts Lassie and Elizabeth.
Check out a different take on the boys' "live" show at the shop. Shot with no fans, limited crew, and with social distancing, Sort of Live at Jensen's features the live tracks as well as interviews with the band and Jensen's owner.
