Letter to bands, artists, promoters, producers
Hi my name is Jeff Rhodes just a regular person like anyone else I am starting a positive movement based on my life and I need your voice – I want to help youth make better choices and have more options -- help me spread the word about this awesome program I call the USprogram so every time you say it you talk about you -
If you will help me in turn I will help you create more music shows for your band or group. I have over 2000 instrumental beats you can use. Listen to some just click here I will use this network to help you enlarge your fan base if you help me - We really want a wide range of music in our groups. I am open to anyone at this point even horrible sad to say but some people can be better promoters then artists and still stay in the field -
I have been working on these solutions through physical inter action with youth in communities throughout the west coast for many years. I have talked to older men and women although I am 50 and asked the question ( what would have made them stick in school and not drop out) and 88% agreed music was a key. We help youth become artists motivate and set up show dates …. Each artist must sign contracts not to get in trouble or miss any school or they may lose their money and there spot. We give these kids hope and they will make better choices I am absolutely sure.
With your support I will connect city wide mentors/older artists - together all over the USA. Mentors make decisions for the youth not me - Youth must stay in school and out of trouble until they take the bow and people leave the show before they get paid. Youth sell tickets to friends and family and gets to keep all the money for the ticket sale - We look for venues for shows to help support us - Some paid shows - some free. Set up food drives and give the food to the community and local food banks. A music event with food you can take home..
We will encourage business ownership, ASCAP memberships and keep youth in focus and off of drugs. I need mentors, pastors and community men and women to step up. We are the ones to fix our problems not the government - look to each other and one another and work on stronger solutions to better equip our youth with education and family support. Teaching to be better fathers and mothers through counseling and healthy eating.
I need you to do these things to be a success:
Become a mentor
Support the bands (buy tickets) come to the free shows at least. See Calendar below
Volunteer (help find places to post food boxes (food bank support for pick up)
Post our flyers and promotions
This programs goal is to 1. Give music involvement for at risk youth around town if youth stays out of trouble and in school. 2. Help family's who need food at the end of the month.
First thing I need is a place to hold an event - Then if you have that we need to go around and ask local businesses can we post a box with a flyer attached to people can see and maybe send out a email to everyone - But we just do have a event to give a way free food and music but to help youth that have music bands or groups and who are at risk of going the wrong direction.
How to get started
- First this to do is find places to set up food receptacles to food drive plus we have contest to see who can scout for the most food from there friends.
- Get stickers email or sent to you for your boxes. If you are thinking you can raise more that 200 pounds of food let me know.
- Take your boxes out to the community businesses and set up your boxes with your stickers on the box - ask the manager to send out a email to all the employees if possible.
- ask your churches can he hold a event there at the local church.
- I will set up ticket sales on line for you.
- you must get instructions unless you think you can host a show alone.
- search reverbnation by zip code for local talent. Copy and past on line post to the local artists or make on yourself.
