The Spin I’m In: One More for the Roadie

My band The Stellar Moments and I are about to hit the road again for a tour of the East Coast and Midwest.  Most of the preparations are in place but I’m down to the wire with some as usual: book flights, arrange rental gear in NYC, van rental, T-shirts printed, CDs shipped to NYC, etc.

We’re about as bare bones as a band can be. Just band members: no sound person, merch person or roadies, which brings me to another brilliant idea from the Sparks camp: “Roadie For A Day”.  Help us hump our gear, sell merchandise, fetch beers, or select groupies (kidding), and you will receive the soon to be highly coveted Golden Lanyard with Road Crew Pass.  You and your guest will also get in to the show for free. Just write to us at with a sentence why you should be our “Roadie For A Day”. We will crown one “Roadie For A Day” per city, so get your Mag Lite and fanny pack ready to rock.
