ONE YEAR LATER
Last year on this date Jacob Moon fans gathered in Hamilton, Ontario to celebrate 20 years of Jacob’s music. I made the trek out to Hamilton for the week to hangout with Jacob and help promote the show. It was an epic night of music with the Jacob Moon Band and special guests before a filled Hamilton Place venue. If you weren’t there you should have been. Here’s the recap from a blog I posted after the gig last year.

It was a very special night! I was there and will post my review later this week. As soon as I got back from Hamilton I had another business trip and have not yet had time to write up this incredible show, but I will! Until then, here are a few images and Jacob’s feedback on the night:

The night was magical, and Hamilton really came out to pack the place. We were near capacity at 300 souls! The band was on fire, and we relished this chance to play a career retrospective of the more rocking songs from the last 20 years.

You can read the feature stories from the Hamilton Spectator and the View online.

Thanks to all the FAN.SI Partners who came and brought friends. It was nice to talk to so many of you in the pre-show reception! I’m still working through that huge guitar cake (good thing I have three little helpers!).

NEXT UP in the 20th Anniversary Celebrations:

MAY 1 at the Conrad Centre: 20th Anniversary Homecoming with special guests Lisa Winn and cellist Ben Bolt-Martin. This show will feature the more acoustic side of my catalogue, in my hometown. Can’t wait! Local songwriter Luke Michielsen opens.

DID SOMEONE SAY “CAKE”?

Jacob Moon – “Thanks to all the Gold and Platinum FANSI partners who attended the 20th Anniversary show on Friday night. We cut into an epic Larivee Cake, I shared a greeting and my gratitude to all in the VIP reception. Thanks to Platinum member and forallmoonkind.com curator Steve Thornton for organizing it!”

Jacob Moon’s 20th Anniversary Continues May 1, 2015 in Kitchener
Jacob Moon – “Help us celebrate 20 years of music-making, in my hometown of Kitchener! May 1st is the date–Conrad Centre is the place. Just walked thru it today and there’s a LOT of space in this gorgeous hall…makes me nervous! If you haven’t picked up tickets yet, message me at jacobmoon.com@g mail.com and I will put you on the door list (just $20 through me). Or you can get them now at Conrad Centre.

If you’re a Gold or Platinum Partner, then let me know you’re coming so I can get everything ready for you. I am planning on having a small reception for VIPs backstage before the show. Every VIP pass is good for 4 free tickets to this show! Looking forward to seeing you there!”

What’s a celebration without gifts. These “swag bags” were given to Fan.si members at the Hamilton show and will be available in Kitchener. Grab the limited edition Jacob Moon “20 Years” T-shirt while you are there.

Jacob Moon – “All my FAN.SI supporters (Silver, Gold, Platinum) get a free swag bag! Be sure to attend an upcoming show to collect yours!”

Swag bag gifts provided by the fans from www.forallmoonkind.com. Thanks Don, Milena, and Craig! The first MoonCon was a success.

I know we aren’t going to have to wait another 20 years for the next MoonCon gathering! Jacob is busy writing new songs in preparation for his next release and performing in front of his fans all across North America. 2016 may be 21 years of Jacob Moon music, but we have lots to look forward too and many more years to enjoy this talented singer-songwriter. Thanks Jacob!!!
