Time is one of our most precious commodities… so I can’t tell you how humbling it was to find out, when pulling all the numbers for this post, that you have spent a whopping 97,000 minutes in 2018 watching Peoria Music Live videos. NINETY-SEVEN THOUSAND! And that doesn’t include Instagram! What can I say besides THANK YOU!!!
Check out our top posts from Instagram, YouTube, and Facebook below!
These are the top twelve Peoria Music Live Instagram posts for 2018… The surprising thing is that a few of them are very new and a few of them are not. In fact, the top post was just put up on Friday night!
Dead End Lights gave me a CD Saturday night and the post I put up about it has already become our post with the farthest reach for 2018.

I love Instagram, but haven’t been able to keep up with it as much as other social media. Our numbers are continually improving, so I’m looking forward to putting this post together next year and seeing amazing numbers.
There is one woman who you will notice pops up on this several times… I can’t wait to see what she does in this next year as well!
(Way to go Alison Hanna!)
The Top Ten YouTube videos -
I was stunned to find out that our YouTube videos have been watch for 18,300 minutes in 2018. What I wasn’t shocked by was the videos that made it into the Top Ten… It was almost impossible to choose a couple to include here, but here are a few…
These were ranked by YouTube based on the number of minutes spent watching them…
Charlie Hayes and Brian Stear were fantastic… I’m not at all surprised that this video ended up at number one.
Jury’s Out was the first band to invite me to record from the stage. It was a great night at Jac’s Doghouse!
Second Place, by the Easy Riders was posted just a few weeks ago, but it circulated Facebook quickly! This song was written by drummer, Bob Kelly. The Contemporary Art Center of Peoria is a great venue and I hope to catch many more shows there this year!
Facebook Videos! You have watch 78,700 minutes of our videos in 2018. That is mind-boggling to me.
Our most popular Facebook video by far was from the Bogart Jones Band at Kenny’s that I posted on October 3rd. It was one of only two videos in the Top Ten that weren’t Live Videos!
The others? Here they are…
