    HOUSE CONCERT

    I will play a private concert in your own home! This one will take some planning, and we should probably chat a bit before you select this level. This will be extremely easy to work out if you live in Colorado or Wisconsin, or close by in a neighboring state. Otherwise, let's talk about my touring schedule. I'll be playing lots of different places in 2017, both in and out of the United States, we just might be able to work it out. Plus I'll send an advance signed CD of the new album, as well as the early digital download and the bonus eight-song EP, and you can take your pick of any other back catalog albums of mine you don't already have, I'll send them all. Hell, I'll send you a vinyl copy of the new record as well!
