... assuming you have internet access in your bedroom. If not, you can have me in your living room, office, kitchen, family room ... in fact, you can have me in any room in your house. With amazing music! And full frontal comedy!
The show is called "The Truth About Christmas". Along with two of the most talented musicians I know, Cynthia MacLeod and Gordon Belsher, I'll be performing the show in Milton, Ontario on December 9th and in Sarnia, Ontario on December 10th and 11th. And courtesy of wtfoperagal and her company, SoundQue, you get to see us in performance, because the Sarnia shows are going to be recorded and broadcast in a high quality pay-per-view webcast!!!!
The show is a collection of stories, songs, and tunes that will help you ring in the Christmas season. I think the stories are pretty funny, and Gord and Cynthia are crowd pleasers. Both are award-winning performers, and in particular Cynthia - at age 21 - is one of the most talented fiddlers you will ever see in your life. We've toured with this show in years past and the response has been .. well, terrific. What, this isn't the time for false modesty. And modesty - false or not - isn't my forte.
There's a button below (and permanently at top left) that says "Nils Live". Click it and see how this all works. Essentially, for a paltry $5 (and really, at this time of year, don't you spill that much down the side of your shot glass in an evening?) you get two - count 'em TWO - opportunities to bring me into your bedroom, where you can laugh at me. Hey, I've had that happen for free, so this will be a welcome change.
Five bucks. Come on. Really. Scrabble around under the sofa cushions. There. You're set.
It's not a lot, but if each of you does it (and I'll be coming to those of you with blogs to ask you to help spread the word) maybe this can break even and open the door for other webcasting opportunities. If not, I'll end up broke, living in a van down by the river. But hey, don't let the guilt get you. (Well, OK, if guilt helps, let's use that, too.)
If peer pressure is what you need to tip you over, Bucky jumped on board first. She can appreciate the potential joy that flows from having me in her bedroom, with the added bonus of being able to press "mute" All those times I offered up a prayer to spend time with her and Jess in a bedroom are finally coming true - AND I'm getting paid. Is this a great country or what?
Hit the button. Have a look. And if you have a blog, volunteer to put a button up and help sell the show for me. I'll send you the code, you can suggest the show to your friends, the people you recommend it to will get good value for their money. Hey. Win/win/win.
I hope you'll help make this happen.
