Build a Sustainable Relationship

Intro Message from John Pointer

Welcome!  Over the next six months, this will be ground zero for the Patronism movement.  The equation is really simple:  It's just you, me, and the future of music funding.

With your sustaining support, I will be able to continue to serve all of the artists and patrons on the platform, keep pushing forward with the Live Music Capital Foundation and of course... keep making music for you to enjoy and share.

I'll be shooting a documentary series about the process.  The goal here, beyond funding the work, is to clearly illustrate the difference between "Fund it or lose it!" and "Give what you can and enjoy the results."

Thanks for thinking about it.  If you like what I do, and would like me to keep doing it, this is your perfect opportunity to step up and click, "yes."

About the Band / Bio


Fluent human sound system, producer, composer, actor and musician.  Leader of the Patronism movement.

Here it is... the (in)famous Chili's commercial... in 256k format. This was the one that came out on my mother's birthday, January 13th, 2003. One week later I did my first post-Schrödinger's Cat solo show...
