You all are some hard-ass mothers to please...which is NOT my goal.
My goal was to communicate, which I did....and to get people to bring more instruments...specifically drums
I am glad you paid to see others play-But if you dont take the chance to bring your own instrument to play on the beach or on your own time- You will be tormented. Who the hell would pay $1,300 not to play with some of the musicians here-
-If you cant figure out where to go to not disturn anyone than you are a tool.
-Also glad everyone assumes what kind of person I am-or anyone else is for that matter- Like I would just get drunk and start tapping on my glass in the formal dining room during dinner and start a raucous or something?!! Maybe jump on the Jam Room stage with Billy and Micky and bang one out? How about climb the mast and play my drum up there-Oh yeah -they will turn around for that.
THIS FORUM has taken this to levels I have not considered. I am being attacked on multiple sides. I very much appreciate the few people that are researching the topic and trying to help.

SORRY I DIDNT READ THE OTHER FORUMS MISS ASIA-I DO DONATE ART to the Greening Auction EVERY year. I also volunteer on the boat as trash talker, and have been trying to get a job with the crew for years. I am tired of defending myself and am glad some of you get a kick out of this.
I don't even want to discuss that the second item of your listed goals is to pay for your friends vending passes at festivals. That one takes this thread from mildly amusing to fairly repulsive.
I am sorry you only took 1 minute to read whats going on and are late in understanding anything dude. The fact is, IT SOUNDS LIKE NO ONE here vends for a living on the road. So unless you live the life, dont talk badly on what you dont understand...
I am trying to help people I do not know, but YES, I still consider them friends.
Does anyone here know cost of running a festival?
What about 10 Organizations running 10 different festivals?
How about the cost to Vend at a fest that got taken over by Nitrous, so you made no $$, and still had to pay to vend, for your ticket for music you missed cause you were at your booth, and for gas to the next spot to do it again?
My Raffle is not for Everyone-
It is for the person that wants to win my drum-
-or the person who wants to win a JC ticket-
-or the person who likes the Quilt the Raffle plans on purchasing from a Haitian village Sustained by their craft-
-OR for the person that loves the heady wrap that is being donated by another business-
-or for the person who wants to see EOTO/ TOUBAB KREWE at my Fest and play in a drum circle to TRIBUTE mY FATHER-
BOB---in a group I CHOOSE called An eODE To Bob Krewe-
-THERE IS NO OTHER REASON FOR ANYONE TO DONATE TO ANY CAUSE I LIKE, UNLESS YOU LIKE WHAT I LIKE, THEN DONATE AWAY-
creating a proper 501c does not take a million dollars. It takes a clear mission statement, transparent accounting details and a board of directors.
No one said it did. But it takes $1,000,000 for me to give away MY drum. Which is what this IS ALL ABOUT- NOT ME or EGO.
THANKS EVERYONE FOR THEIR INPUT-I AM DONE POSTING- I WILL SEE YOU ON THE CRUISE
