This is a Vancouver concert announcement, and for all you non-Vancouverites I have a little news at the bottom of the email for you! (Hint: JML t-shirts!)

Celebrate the best weekend of summer with fun outdoor music at Cates Park! They’ve lined up a great day, with bands playing from 4:00 – 6:00, then singer/songwriters until 7:00.
I’m on the songwriter portion from 6:00 – 6:45 with two other performers, and we’ll take turns showing off some of our songs. It will be a very enjoyable time for all. The performers lined up are sure to keep you entertained, and there’s a special bonus….

Yes, Wally’s Burgers, a Vancouver institution since 1962 is now at Cates Park, and they’re ready to make your belly happy! And, even better….

Yes, in an act of shameless self-promotion I am giving away free Wally burgers to the first 3 fans who come up to me and mention this email! I can’t wait! And….

I now have sweet JML Music t-shirts for sale! High-quality Gildan all cotton shirts, available in any colour you want, as long as it’s Forest Green. Here’s a picture. The shirts are $20 only, and I’ll have them, as well as CDs and download cards, for sale at the show, but there are….

Yep, for this performance only I’m giving away a free t-shirt to everyone who shares my Facebook Event with all their FB friends AND comes to the show. Make sure you let me know about your shares (believe it or not, I’m not so FB savvy), and come say hi after the show and I’ll give you a cool JML t-shirt. Just like that!

A little more shameless self-promotion: even if you can’t attend or don’t want a t-shirt, PLEASE SHARE MY FACEBOOK EVENT AND/OR THIS EMAIL as widely as you see fit. You, my wonderful fans, can really help me and my music by spreading the word, not just about this event, but about all my events. I am really proud of the music I make, and I want to share it with as many people as I can, and your help is very, very appreciated. Even if you’re sharing with your friends and family far away they can still become fans and enjoy my music online, through my website or iTunes or CDBaby or Spotify. And who knows, one of these days I might be in their town. And then we can meet.

Now, for you out-of-towners, and those who can’t make it to my show, there’s a special, introductory t-shirt deal: share my Facebook Event with all your friends and you can have a t-shirt for ½ price. (+ shipping.)
I’ll be setting up an option to purchase on my website, until then we’ll have to do it old-skool-ish: either send me a cheque or money order (no SASE required, for all you old-timers!), or you can email your credit or debit card details and I can process payment through my Square card reader. I know, feels a little sketchy sending details like that through email. Go with what feels right to you.

So come on out for a chance to see me play some of my songs live on a beautiful summer day by the water! The weather forecast is great too. Don’t say no, say yes!

When: Saturday, August 26, 4:00 – 7:00pm
Where: Cates park, North Vancouver. Map.
