I always said that I would never sell outâ€¦ Now that I am a successful musician on tour, that is being put to the test, but i don’t sell out sizable locations, but I can pack a bar or a club with the best of them, so I tour most weeks out of the year, but recently I had an energy drink company offer to sponsor my tour, but I had to turn them down.
It felt appreciate selling out, because I didn’t believe in the productâ€¦ On the other hand, I had a national cannabis dispensary chain offer to sponsor a few shows, and after that we jumped at the chance! Anyone who knows my music knows how I assume about cannabis, so promoting a dispensary was something I was more comfortable with, and unlike energy drinks, cannabis really helps people! Since cannabis is a product I believe in, something that benefits the mental health of those who use it, I don’t assume appreciate I “sold out” with this sponsorship.
I even made sure to visit one of the cannabis dispensaries in the chain, to sample some of the goods and talk to the people there and get a assume for the site, bottom line is this company helped promote my shows, and gave a genuinely generous sampling of the several kinds of cannabis they sell! My “green room” backstage was a literal yellowroom, with a walk-in humidor and my own private budtender to tell me about the unusual kinds of cannabis available! This seems appreciate the beginning of a long and mutually beneficial arrangement!
