"Doing my show with MetropolitanZoom was as close as I could’ve gotten to being with a live audience in an actual venue. The show ran smoothly and professionally, and seeing the reactions from the audience while I did what I love to do made me feel alive again as a performing artist!”

"Bernie Furshpan is an inspiration and a pioneer. I always come away from his webinars uplifted and informed."
- Jeff Harnar
Thanks so much for the wonderful webinar. Great info confirming some of the things that I have been doing over the years as a promoter — very, very helpful! And gaining more understanding of the tech side of producing is invaluable. You have it down to a science and will be very beneficial for many. Going virtual is a must for any performer and producer today. Thank you for sharing your insights and I am looking forward to working with you on my upcoming productions.
- Gwendolyn Black
Thank you for your time and for all the information you so generously shared in our webinar
regarding giving performers a way to remain creative during this pandemic pause. I am so inspired! Also it's brilliant how you have shaped a virtual venue that gives the audience an experience similar to a live room as well. I'm looking forward to working with you in the future.
- Janene Lovullo
"The webinar gave us more than just a lot of excellent information. Bernie was able to invite us (artists) to consider a new paradigm, a new way of looking at this performance world that we are now a part of–whether we like it or not. He is a very inspiring and genuine speaker. And has the knowledge and business track-record to back it up. I would highly recommend the webinars he offers to artists who are sincerely looking for a new (professional) way to connect with their audiences."
- Emile Pandolfi, Twenty nine albums and 500 million streams on Pandora
"Your seminar last eve was totally INTERGALACTIC and FANTASTIC. Your light shines so bright and I can see the NEW sense of hope you brought to your present and potential performing artists. You are doing God's work and you are right on time! You are truly "Out of this world" terrific!"
- Randi Chenkin, Randirobics
"What I find so exciting about live performance, in any venue, is the opportunity to connect and interact with my audience, something I had missed. MetropolitanZoom addressed this and I was able to see everyone in front of me; see their faces and bodies react, wave, applaud, blow kisses, or if I pointed them out or said something to them, as I was singing, and when a song ended, made it feel as real as if they were sitting right there in the same room with me, which actually, they were. This brilliant platform will certainly flourish now and in the future and have a positive, global impact by bringing people, that otherwise could not come together.."
~ Sara Zahn, Jazz Singer/Songwriter
