Chris Bellamy's radio promotion

My gofundme account is to help pay for radio promotion for my new CD, "The Waterman". This is what I propose for you folks that like good music and like to go saltwater fishing! I am working on a new album titled, "The Waterman". I need to raise $2000.00 for expenses for the marketing and promotion. Most of the recording is either being done by a good friend of mine or myself here at home. Between me and the folks I know we can get the recording process done. Even the artwork and cover design is being done by Ms. Vicki Viall who is Janet Babson Seal and my house mate!
But marketing and promotion to Radio is just something an artist must pay for, one way or another.
So, I have come up with this idea. For those of you that don't know me, I own and operate a small Charter Boat business specializing in light tackle, live bait and fly fishing trips. I've been at it a long time! But I am also a professional musician. I operate both businesses. If I can book four of my 3 hour shows sometime between the months of May 2020 and December 2020, around the eastern North Carolina area, for $500.00 per show, that will give me what I need to cover the cost of promotion for my new recording, “The Waterman”!
The thing is, I need to get this money as soon as possible. I can get a great deal on Radio Promotion if I act soon. Every artist uses a radio promoter.If an artist does a new project of any kind and it's not promoted properly it will never be found! Here is what is different about my gofundme effort.
For the kind people that step forward and book these shows in advance and pay for them in full, I will also throw in a Saltwater Fishing trip on my newly refurbished Dream Lady II, 25-foot Center Console Aquasport. This trip will include all the gear, tackle and fuel for a trip from 7:00 AM until 12:00 Noon PM and if they are biting, we might stay longer. I like fishing and seeing people have a good time! I normally fish with in about ten miles or so off Wrightsville/Topsail Beach and we leave from my boat slip.
If you don’t want to go off shore, I have a beautiful Chaos, 16-foot Shallow Water Skiff, that will carry me and two people for Flounder, trout and redfish/(Puppy Drum).  Since we will not burn near as much fuel if you opt for the Chaos Flats boat trip, I’ll make the Chaos trips full day if you want to stay!
I am a fully licensed USCG Captain and have been for 25 years. I just renewed this past year!
This is as good of a deal as you will ever get on having me play an event for you and get a fishing trip too with me as your fishing guide/Captain! I'll be glad to  put it down in writing! It’s winter time and it’s slow in Caroline! For you folks that are not in a position to do the Fishing trip/ Chris Bellamy Show, $10.00,15.00 ,20 bucks, or what ever you can manage,will be much appreciated! I will make sure you get a signed copy or free down load of the new "The Waterman" CD! You all will help me a lot by doing this! If I can get this together now,it'll save me a ton later!
