Hello! I'm Jonathan Beacom, from United States! My dream is to perform in a live house in Japan!

Thanks to the collaboration of Airtripp friends like Tala, if I'm able to go to Japan I could really play my guitar in a live house in Japan!

Tala is the guitarist of a band named "Datenshi Project" and they offered to collaborate with them!

I can't fullfil this dream alone

I grew up with a single mom, living in rv campers most of my life, and I have to leave schools many times and that's why I cannot get high paying jobs. But I work very hard to find ways to make money!

Please, help me to make my dream come true, meet all my friends in Japan and perform in concert there!

Why I love Japan

I'm interested in Japan since I was in school. I remember to learn about many countries due to a class work, and the first time I heard of Japan I got really impressed by its traditional culture and beautiful landscapes.

Of course, Manga and Anime catched my attention too (like Pokemon). And also I started to love the sound of Japanese songs I started to discover, though I don't understand the words. But what I love the most is the Japanese people. Since getting to know people who live there, I find myself dreaming of being somewhere that people is so nice.

Playing my guitar in a live house in Japan!

My family has a lot of musicians and music has always meant a lot to me. I was 13 when I got a small and cheap guitar that I started to play. Then, my mum got me a new one around my early 20s.

I started to use Airtripp because I wanted to make Japanese friends and I have been able to meet a lot of nice people here, like Tala and the other band members that will help me to play in Japan.

Details on needed funds

Only the flight ticket is around $ 1,500, so I need $ 2,300. I want to bring my guitar with me, so the flight ticket gets a little expensive.

Schedule

I'm helping my mother out as often as I can because she is having surgeries and recovering. I think around March of next year she will be okay, so I can travel to Japan on Spring.

Of course, I will let you all know when the live dates are decided!
