66 Days On Route 66

“66 Days on Route 66” revitalizes the American road trip, as seen though the lens of an Australian singer-songwriter navigating a new identity in a new land. “66 Days on Route 66” puts international best-selling Australian musician, Grayson, on the classic American road trip for an unforgettable inside look at his adventures while traveling gig to gig at over 50 live shows at various venues along the old mother road. Starting in Chicago, Illinois on July 8, 2011 then motoring west through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and ending in Santa Monica, California on September 11, 2011, the tour passes through 100 towns & cities en route.

“66 Days on Route 66” is both a video series and live music tour that pieces back together the forgotten trail. Capturing Grayson’s experiences candidly in documentary-style format “66 Days on Route 66” re-personalizes legends from the road, gig by gig, town by town, story by story. International chart-topping artist Grayson, pens the next sentence in the nation’s narrative about our love affair with this most musical of highways, bringing his natural, bright folk/rock sensibilities to the festivals, radio shows, saloons and cafes along the way. And he will see this frontier in the way the original migrants of the Dust Bowl might have seen it—through the lens of someone navigating a new identity in a new land. Offering his fresh perspective on traditional Americana, “66 Days on Route 66” gives a front row seat to Grayson’s landmarks in search of the people living, working, and succeeding at the time honored American dream.

The journey will chronicle not only Grayson’s discovery of the behind-the-scenes America that we don’t really know, but also his own self-discovery, as he learns more of who he really is, as a musician, as a visitor, and as a human being. Through a series of vignettes and short-take interviews, Grayson will share his perspective and views of the American Dream, Route 66, and not just what he is offering to America through this tour, but what he believes America offers up to him in return.

There are Main Streets and Wall Streets; roads not taken and roads to success, but there was and will only be one Mother Road. In a time when people’s most poignant moments are often shared only within the labyrinth that we know as the information superhighway, “66 Days on Route 66” reminds us to return to the beauty of the original American highway — our glorious Route 66. Grayson’s tour gives us access to 12 major areas from America’s heartland to the West Coast. “66 Days on Route 66” will spend time in:

Chicago Oklamhoma City Albuquerque Pasadena St Louis Amarillo Santa Fe Los Angeles Kansas City Flagstaff San Bernardino Santa Monica

However, it’s the stops in the smaller towns along the way where the tour provides a passage way to untapped markets:

Performing at summer festivals Live promoting on local radio shows & media outlets Unique venues w/ 100-2000-person capacities Direct marketing to residents, establishment owners, & local icons

Grayson secures advertising visibility to groups that may otherwise be over-looked. Smaller towns will embrace Grayson’s attractive Australian accent and magnetic personality providing a direct connection to a hard to reach audience.
