Project Overview

In the early throes of the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown an accomplished non-profit fundraising consultant and her husband, a Hollywood producer and writer, came up with the inspired idea to create a virtual events platform that combined their talents while offering people a night on the town from their own house.

With marquis entertainers on-board from the inception, the initial website buckled under the load as thousands of paid viewers showed up minutes before the start of each streamed event. House Seats Live reached out to Eclectic Electric to architect a robust web infrastructure that could grow with their increasing audience. The new design proved itself as the site’s popularity exceeded all expectations with some events viewed by more than 25,000 customers. The biggest success story was the hundreds of thousands of dollars raised for participating charities.

One of our favorite shows was Ted Danson and His Friends from Work.
