THE “JAZZ OR BUST” TOUR
ABOUT THE TOUR
As of June 1, 2012, I’m doing something fairly crazy and taking The Jazz Session on tour. I’m traveling through North America — and then maybe the rest of the world — conducting interviews and giving poetry readings.

SUPPORT THE TOUR
There are several ways for you to support my tour.
- I’ll be living off the income from the paying members of the show. You can become a member HERE.
- You can also make a one-time donation to the tour at various levels from $10 to $1,000. Just choose a level HERE and make your secure donation via PayPal. You don’t need a PayPal account to do this. And there are cool thank-you gifts, too!
- Suggest a place to go or a musician to interview.
- Give me a place to stay.
- Host a house party (any size) so I can read my poetry and maybe sell a book or two.
- Suggest a venue (bookstore, performance space) in your town where I could do a poetry reading.
- Buy a book for my Kindle from my Amazon travel wish list.
To do any of the above (other than donate) send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Initially, I’ll be traveling on the East Coast, but feel free to suggest places and offer me accommodations anywhere. Thank you!
