PLUR – Once upon a time my friends and I were sitting around talking about dream jobs, or at least things we could do to have a life we completely enjoyed. The ideas coming from local dj’s and producers turned into a weekly gig putting on a hip hop show promoting local rappers and hip hop artists. We packed the place every week, and it was great for awhile. Greed killed it. One person thought of themselves more than the many involved in making these shows and eventually lost not only the gig but a lot of friends in the process.
Later on again I and some local dj’s get together and another grand idea was born. We will have the biggest outdoor show we can packed with local dj’s and artists in the Electronic Music scene. We planned it all out and it happened, our Electric show was born and we had an attendance of just under 10000. It was the single greatest event I’ve had the pleasure of being a part of. The atmosphere was amazing having that many people all with the same vibe and love and unity that we wanted to being together. It was such a success we decided to do another event a few months later. By the planning of the third event I myself had and many others stopped supporting the promotions due to no profit sharing, no dj’s being paid, volunteers being taken advantage of and the greed of a few poisoning the wonderland we had created.
Again we have more ideas, what about the country folk who aren’t into edm? We do live surrounded by corn… Lets have a country mud truck rally concert weekend out in the middle of a field. Long story short it also had great success and again some of the same people found their way into control and profit.
We throw events every Thursday nights now at a local bar, I and my loyal close like minded dj coalition, and we have done quite well in collecting a following and a real chance to step up and take back the scene we love and need in this world today. To bring back the peace of caring like minded loving people United in one place respecting each other, the music, the atmosphere, the vibe of our city… The PLUR.
I have all the knowledge, experience, and Contacts locally to handle all the logistics of such an event. I have all the best artists from a tri-state area willing to be involved, photographers, fire spinners, acrobats, food vendors, merchandising…. All of it is fueled from the passion in my heart and soul to bring back that place, that vibe that my city had at one time. We have many events and community building goals to do and there is no end in sight of our imaginations and ambitions. All events promoting a theme of togetherness, and helping each other. Once we have done a few events and have made it financially possible, our plan is to throw an event with a popular national artist with a ticket price of $1 at a venue that could host a woodstock / electric forest type event where multiple stages and artists of all spectrums can gather and share their passions. Flow artists, fire spinners, carnival side show entertainers and many many more.
Our ideas are endless and pure.
We do not wish to do any of these events with profit being our main goal or motivation. The goals are to bring the human race together in a positive way through music and artistry. To bring our community together, maybe even start an organization to raise money for our community at every event.
We need the starting funds to put on the first event. In the past they have thrown events with the intention of paying everyone involved after they had collected all the money after the events… Which eventually turned into only the people who had actual deals with them got paid and they brushed off everyone else. Needless to say they have ruined their reputation and only have a tenth of the attendance as our beginning shows. We would like to have the payments set and budgeted so that everyone involved who should get compensated does and everyone is supported and the stage is set to do so and roll the profit over to the next bigger better event creating relationships with the city and businesses, creating new goals and new ideas… We can do this. All we need is your investment. Not in me, or any of us individually, but in the passion of these humans and the positive vibe of the atmosphere and way of thinking and living in PLUR.
I personally appreciate you for even reading my dream.
May the Universe bless you for your consideration.
