Seeking Sponsors for the 420RADIO Effin’ NORML Tour



This summer, I am delighted to be going on a tour with this band from Dallas/Ft. Worth - The Effinays. They play groovalistic irie rock funk and are huge supporters of NORML (as if the photo didn’t give it away) and we’re performing the Effin’ NORML Tour beginning this June.

I don’t have many details yet (aside from shows in Dallas and Albuquerque) but this should last a few weeks (I’m told we’re done before Seattle Hempfest). I don’t even know how I fit in yet – opening act? emcee? live feed host? extra bass player? maybe all of the above?

What I do know is I need your help. I am seeking sponsors for the 420RADIO Effin’ NORML Tour. I will be doing my live weekday shows from the road, interviewing the everyday tokers in the not-so-pot-friendly-or-downright-hostile-to-marijuana states. And I’ll be bringing your coverage of this incredible band as they play their shows across the country.

I’m close to purchasing a very cool ex-Trimet wheelchair-accessible van to act as the road studio. I’ll have it vinyled-up with 420RADIO Graphics and prominent placement of sponsors’ logos. Imagine my big ol’ pot-leaf and American Flag-festooned 420RADIO Mobile Studio pulling into (let’s say) Tulsa, Oklahoma with your dispensary, your seed company, your clothing line, or your business’s logos on it. Wanna bet you’ll be seen on the Tulsa local news that night? (Needless to say, I won’t be traveling with any weed on me… fortunately, there’s weed everywhere I go.)

There will also be a sponsor banner photo wall, like you see at red carpet events, where I, fans, and the band get their photos taken. Your company logo will be seen plastered all over Instagram and Facebook accounts of fans and their friends. I’ll also have your fliers or merch for fans to take or buy at the gigs. I’ll run your commercial during my live shows and I’ll add your banner ad to my websites.

Please get in contact with me through the 420RADIO Contact Form at http://420RADIO.org/contact if you are interested in becoming a sponsor of the 420RADIO Effin’ NORML Tour! Thanks! –“R”R
