GINA for Missing Persons FOUNDation

Oct 17-Nov 4 GINA for Missing Persons FOUNDation hosts a tour called The International Squeaky Wheel Tour® or SWT. For 19 days: Artists touring or playing anywhere in the world are invited to join us in profiling missing people local to their gig. Collectively this grassroots movement of artists like you have helped to profile 1000's of missing people and over 300 have been found. Many GINA Artists have taken this mission on as their own and have found that by profiling missing people their music is heard and by asking their audiences to take a missing persons flyer to post people are found and suddenly their music is worth so much more. To become a GINA Artist/SWT go to: http://www.411gina.org/ginaartists.htm#beartist

My band, Clementine headlines the tour traveling in a tour bus filming a reality TV series called FINDing Gina about a band on the road trying to find one of their members sisters.You may remember my sister Gina has been missing for 8 years. She vanished after a performance in Lincoln, NE Oct 17, 2000. She is the inspiration for all of this.

We have several openings in our schedule where we could partner with other artists or would simply love advice on good venues to play in the area. Many of our events are fund raisers as it is very expensive to make this happen. We aim for maximum press (Radio, TV, Print) wherever we go and the families of the missing join us in order to gain exposure for their missing loved ones.

If you have a venue that you think would be interested and/or you want to join us in the cause or you just want us to crash your gig please email me directly. Clemstreet@aol.com.
