**Now about Shemspeed. Shemspeed is about to bring you the biggest
Jewish Music CollegeCampus tour in history! "The 40 Days/ 40 Nights
Tour" it's coming to
you, so get on board. What it be? An exciting tour flooded with
entertainment and education, the NIGHTS will be packed with
unforgettable performances from the cutting edge of Jewish musicians
while the DAYS will be filled with sessions and workshops led by the
musicians themselves on songwriting, music marketing, and spirituality
on the road. Students will be connected through a College-wide Battle
Of The Bands in which each school's winning band will perform as the
opener for the 40 Tour as it comes around.
While most performers usually only show up to a venue, play a concert,
and then leave, the artists on the 40 Tour will be interacting with
the audience of college students through sessions, infusing Jewish
learning with entertainment; educating and encouraging our next
generation to learn more about the Jewish music genre. Shemspeed will
be presenting performers who have much to contribute to the
development of Jewish American identity through their talents and
embodiment of Jewish values.
40 Days/ 40 Nights will reach over 8,000 college students directly in
its first year, and thousands more through CD hand-outs and media
exposure. Stopping at about 30 colleges, the 40 Tour will join with
Hillels, Chabads and sponsors to promote each show to its maximum
To sponsor the tour, bring the tour to your campus or to get involved
in any way, email 40@... * bands and sponsors will be
announced soon, keep up to date on www.shemspeed.com. It all goes down
in November and February!
