EVH Gear TV is creating A Live Talkshow With Celebrity Guests & Gear Demos
12

Welcome! If you are here, I am very grateful. I'll be as brief as possible and tell you what I am up to and what I am seeking.

You may or may not have heard of the YouTube talkshow I run, but either way I will tell you what has led me to consider starting a Patreon page.

I have been doing the YouTube show (weekly talkshow with celebrity guests, live broadcasts with gear demos, plus standalone produced gear demos & reviews) for just under 2 years. Just 3 months shy of 2 years as of creating this Patreon.

The channel has seen growth from 30 subscribers when kicking off the current concept to now almost 4,500 subscribers in the time outlined above. That is good growth anyway you look at it.

1 year ago I quit my dayjob to run a small home business and be home with my family. While my home business allows some conveniences like being able to interview a celebrity at a drop of the hat, there are some obstacles that running a successful show can cause with my home business. 

With my Patreon I am only seeking to offset costs that I am losing from hours away from my home business and allowing me to continue to produce a great show.

Entry level Patreon supporters are greatly thanked for their tips. However I do feel I provide a great service here with my dedication and commitment to content creation and have outlined various reward tiers for those that wish to contribute more than the minimum.

Please help me continue doing what I do best, producing a professional and entertaining weekly program interviewing some of your favourite musical personalities, giving you tips and demos on gear and so much more.

Your support is greatly appreciated and I thank you!
Tiers
Help Us Behind The Scenes

A Buck A Month!
A buck a month makes a big difference! You get a heartfelt thank you from us, as your support greatly counts. We want you to know that you are appreciated and your contribution helps with expenses related with the show (postal mailings and many other show related fees). You will also have access to portions of our Patreon feed, solely for you, our Patreon supporters!
Music Chat
$4 or more per month
With this Tier, not only does it help us more with show related expenses each month than our entry level tier, we're also giving you some very cool things in return. First, you will get a digital download of 2 of my albums from Finding Core. Second, you have access to a one-on-one (quarterly) 30 minute Skype call with me. Talk about gear, music, whatever you want to chat about, in a private one-on-one call.  
The Helix
$8 or more per month
With this Tier you are getting everything in the previous Tiers including access to private Patreon only feed, 2 digital album downloads, a 30 minute quarterly one-on-one Skype call with me to talk about music, gear or whatever you wish, PLUS! Access to my Patreon Exclusive "Van Halen" Line 6 Helix Presets. This tier helps with show related expenses but also will assist in the funding of prizes for giveaways.
Guest Spotlight & FREE T
$12 or more per month
With this Tier you are getting ALL the above, PLUS: 1 Guaranteed question of our celebrity guests on any of our shows. Some shows are so busy that we cannot guarantee to ask questions from the LIVE Chat. This way you get the VIP front of the line access for your question to be answered by that day's guest. Question will have to be provided in advance.

But Wait, There's More!
You'll also get a Shout-Out in our end credits and in all future video descriptions, PLUS a FREE T-Shirt of your choice from our store on your first year anniversary of your Patreon Subscription. 
Goals
12% complete
My goal is simple. Continue to bring you an exciting and entertaining YouTube talkshow with great guests, produced in the highest of quality that I can (both audio & visually). But not go broke doing it!

Doing such takes numerous hours away from my home business (my only real source of income for my family). Thus, there are many man hours lost which equals lost earnings.

Although I may have sponsorships and relationships with various companies, whom I am extremely grateful for, this is often in gear or clothing used for the show, and you can't pay the phone bills, internet bills, lighting, house payment, insurances or put food on the table with gear.

To do what I do with EVH Gear TV, would be a full time job to some people, or at the barest of minimums, a very busy part time job.

Just some of the tasks needed each week are: booking guests (many back & forth communications with publicists & agents) often requiring countless follow ups, travel, pre show prep for each guest to fill their time slot with quality questions and content, graphics design, social promotion on numerous platforms, advertising, audio & video production, production tests with guests often days in advance of live show, replying to inquiries regarding gear recommendations seen on an episode, learning new gear and there's so much more that we haven't even scratched the surface. 

Please help me achieve my goal (which is far less than I actually need) to at least take away a bit of the financial sting from lost income of the home business.

I cannot thank you enough for your support.
