Intro Message from John Pointer

Welcome!  I really love doing this for you, and I'd really love your support to keep doing it.   Whether it's music, acting, mentoring kids, coaching other artists, serving other patrons, or even studying and promoting ideas like Patronism and the Live Music Capital Foundation, at the end of the day, it's nearly impossible to do it alone.  So if you like what I do, and want to help me keep doing it, there is no easier way than by becoming a patron.

Of course, in addition to the good feelings, you'll get all sorts of goodies - twnty-some-odd albums of music and counting, rare recordings, the stories behind them, special videos, and other patron perks.  Want to hear what my high school a cappella quartet sounded like?  It's in there!  Want to listen to that progress into Schrödinger's Cat?  It's in there!  Want to hear the Mexican Bolero music I was doing at the same time?  It's in there!

And for the first time, instead of just watching me do all this work... you can help.

Thanks for coming this far.  I'd really appreciate your support and patronage.  It's an idea as old as humanity, it's easy, and it really does make a world of difference.

About the Band / Bio

Fluent human sound system, producer, composer, actor and musician.  Leader of the Patronism movement.  A lot like Zorro!  Sort of.
