Hey folks. How’s it going? I’m doing pretty good myself. This is the actual Dave here, not some Davebot who composes all of his/my promo material, although, hey that would actually be an okay idea, if fraught with a certain danger: what if the Davebot went rogue? what if it couldn’t handle being bossed around? what if it was programmed by some evil ant-Dave scientist to destroy Dave? All good questions, but to the matter at hand: this pledge site. Looks pretty cool, eh? Ya, I thought you would like it.

When you look around here, you’ll see some stuff that you can’t find elsewhere (unless the anti-Dave has created a mirror site. Note to self: look into this). It’s a kind of a one-stop depot that addresses a lot of queries and ideas people have asked of me through other means, but that, ultimately, have gone missing in my busy life trying to find a cure for the saxophone. There is stuff to buy here, but also events to stage and experiences to have, all of them curated by yours truly to meet the needs and desires (okay, maybe not desires. you’ll have to go to another site for that) of people who like what I do, i.e fans, i.e supporters i.e people without whom I would be doing Ron MacLeans’s laundry (note to self: sell Ron MacLeans’s laundry here). A few years ago, I put out a call on Facebook for people who wanted signed stuff-- books, records-- over Xmas, and it was impossible to meet everyone’s needs (again: busy defeating the sax). Here, it’s a never ending supply and the good folks behind the screen (not, actually behind the screen; no need to get alarmed) will make sure it’s all done quickly and in earnest. Have a look around. There’s some goofy stuff and some serious stuff, and some stuff in between, which pretty much covers the extent of what I do. Enjoy and please come again.
