As many of you know and have been seeing, Light of Day Europe’19 is ready to roll starting next week with 16 Shows in 9 Countries with Guy Davis, Joe D’Urso, Miss Emily, Jeffrey Gaines, Vini Lopez, James Maddock and Rob Dye. The cast will also be joined by various Artists in various countries and perform together as this has become a tradition.
We are offering up a chance to donate/asking for help for “underwriting” portions of the tour to help with the costs. Partial amounts and any donations helps us along!
For many years, Light of Day Europe was extremely fortunate (and thankful!) to have underwriting from a wonderful and generous couple that lived in the San Francisco area and LOD Europe could never have grown to what it is today without their incredible help. With so many worthy causes out there, we are extremely thankful to Ken and Anna for ALL their help over the years!!
As we enter LOD Europe ’19, we thought it would be more palatable to list the expenses similar to a PledgeMusic or Kickstarter event. All donations are tax deductible and Light of Day will supply donation letters to all supporters.
We have separated the categories into 3 main areas
which are 1) Flights 2) Hotels 3) Van Rentals.
LOD is extremely thankful to the cities/shows were hotels are donated to LOD as this really helps keep touring costs down.
Donations can be made by PayPal at:
or by check or bank wire. Please contact for info.
Many thanks for ANY and all help you may lend and please feel free to send over any questions.
All our best,
Light of Day Europe 2019
