Singer-songwriter Jont takes to the road with his guitar, some songs and his cameraman Dave and embarks on a 4-week UK-wide tour of people’s living rooms with the Orange Unlit tour. The Orange Unlit tour is a series of unique gigs which take place in people’s homes, with local bands and fans getting together to create an intimate live experience from the comfort of their own living rooms.
Jont invites people to put forward their homes or their bands for an Unlit session via the website www.i-am-everyone.co.uk/orangeunlit. From swanky Victorian villas, remote coastal cottages to cramped student flats, all homes put forward are considered so long as they can host their friends and 2-3 unplugged bands. Armed with a camcorder, an Orange powered laptop and a tour bus, Jont and Dave document their tour via the website www.i-am-everyone.co.uk/orangeunlit with a daily blog, interactive tour map, videos, photos and Twitter updates.
Last FM features online playlists based on the music Jont plays on the tour bus. Jont and Dave in turn rely on the public to submit recommendations to keep them entertained, suggest local landmarks or places of interest to check out, and more importantly, invite them to stop in for a nice cup of tea.
