We had a sobering weekend. Well, Friday night at the Railway club wasn't sobering as I think I may of had one too many. Just ask Cool J. She'll tell you about the cab ride home where I managed to rack up the bill by giving crazy directions home. Oh well.
But it was also sobering because we had our contractor friend come over and tell us what we need to do to make the jam space a reality. And friends, this is going to cost money. And I haven't started raking in the millions yet so this may prove to be a bit of a problem. First off we need to deal with the structural problems, then the moisture problem and then the sound proofing problem. All of these problems require research, supplies and money.
So - what do people do to get money? Well - the customary way is working. Well, we are doing that. Next. There is holding a fundraiser. And I don't feel comfortable charging people money to pay for a jam space. I would rather that money go to something else, like back into the community helping people who really need it. Or - sponsorship/partnerships.
Ok - let's try the sponsorhip/partnerships. Let's go with that angle. A little product placement! Ya! Like Home Depot or Dicks's Lumber or Donald's Market (renovators need to eat too!).
If you, or know of anyone who, would like a piece of this DIY gold mine - contact us! We would love to hear from you.
Whatta think? Do you think its a good idea? Do you have any suggestions?
