I've been working really hard to get The eli james Experience! up and running for the last few years now. As you know, I really cater to my fans and fans around the world have been asking for me to come play The eli james Experience! in their area. Well, in order for me to do that, I have to start somewhere.. and that somewhere is the United States.
The eli james Experience! 2013 US Tour
As the video explains, the eli james Experience! is "breaking boundaries” as the “Modern One Man Band”. I drum and spin the tunes we all want to hear, all while providing a visual treat via a custom light show that includes a one-of-a-kind LED drum/Glo kit that I control as I play. It's an entertaining show that you'll never forget!
Now, if you ask ANY artist about even booking a show in their own area, let alone the entire USA, it's SUPER HARD to do and takes a tremendous amount of work to get it all done correctly. And as of this moment, I am doing this all by myself with help from a few super AMAZING people behind me.
I am not a major top 40 artist or a major rock band (yet..wink wink).n. and don't have the means to get this goingn.. So, my friends, this is where YOU come in.. I need your help! :)
I was once told the best nation in the world is a DONATION..(ahah) So please help If you can, make a donation, you are making DREAMS COME TRUE!! And if you can't make a donation at this moment.. that's ok, YOU can STILL HELP by spreading the love/word about me and this eli james Experience! KICKSTARTER campaign to anyone that you may know that can help. purely by sharing this campaign to as many people as possible it will help a lot more than you can imagine. :)
We do have a TON of perks for your donations (see right side of this page) and fun group reward levels, listed further down. Let's see if we can raise the funds to get me out there! aahhh! (fingers crossed!) :)

Risks and challenges
Risks and challenges are involved with any road trip. Though this tour will be much larger then past tours, it will be the 5th eli james Experience! tour plus I've toured around the world with the bands I've been involved with. I promise you this... no matter what happens on the road, i am going to do everything in my power to make it to every venue on time and with great punctuation. Also, I purchased road side assistance throughout the US just as a back up. :)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
