Program description: South African-born songwriter and musician, Toby Tobias, is excited to be performing an original show in various venues on the East Coast and in the Midwest called 'Journey from Johannesburg'. It is a performance which tells the story of his journey through 3 continents and takes the form of his original songs interspersed with small narrated vignettes about his life growing up in Johannesburg, South Africa and Jerusalem, Israel and finally New York, USA. The show's message is one of racial equality, understanding of each other's cultures and religions and a strong desire for togetherness in a world which seeks to divide rather than bring together.
Space/special requirements: I have my own PA system. Need 10 sq ft of performance space

Program fee: $501- $1000
Is this fee negotiable? Yes

Notes about the fee: I perform the show both as a 3- and 4-piece band as well as a solo musician. My fee would depend on the request of the library as to the configuration of the band.
