Alexi Paraschos Launches The 25/8 East Coast Diner Tour After Successfully Raising $12K with a Grassroots Kickstarter Campaign
Singer, Songwriter, and Recording Artist Alexi Paraschos will Tour the East Coast Playing Live Music from his hit new album “25/8” Kicking off June 2018 in Boston
[Philadelphia, PA May 30, 2018] Soul and Pop Singer, Songwriter, and Recording Artist Alexi Paraschos officially kicks off The 25/8 East Coast Diner Tour June 2018, and it is coming to a city near you! When you have a non-traditional innovative musical sound, why settle and host a traditional album tour at regular music venues? The 25/8 East Coast Diner Tour is a promotional tour hitting 10 cities in just one month for Alexi’s second album entitled 25/8, which will bring the original recorded music of Alexi live with a full band to diner restaurants across the East Coast, concluding in Atlanta, GA.
Alexi Paraschos developed the idea for the tour from the theme of the album itself, “25/8 is about going a step beyond 24/7 for something or someone you love. It’s about working hard, being passionate, and going the extra mile.” Alexi views diners as a place hard-working people can refuel. Diners sustain people with food and conversation, and are typically open around the clock to serve customers at all hours of the day and night. Diners bring together individuals from various walks of life. During a time of division across the country, Alexi’s goal is to create an intimate show that will produce human connection in a meaningful way. What better way to develop those connections, than combining smooth live music with bacon, eggs, and pancakes! The fans, community, and loved ones of Alexi Paraschos demonstrated a desire for unity and their support of Alexi’s music by successfully surpassing the Kickstarter Fundraiser goal of $12K in just one month! The funds are all being used for the production of the 10 city East Coast Tour!
Alexi mentions the significance of the 25/8 East Coast Diner Tour, “The idea took on added significance for me when, in researching the history of diners, I discovered that the first diners in the United States were started by Greek Americans. Being the son of a proud Greek father myself, a man who always instilled in me the values of working hard, being kind, and sticking up for the little guy, it really seemed like the perfect fit.”
The 10-City East Coast Diner Tour is set to kick off on Saturday June 9, 2018 at 8pm in the place Alexi calls home Boston, MA at Victoria’s Diner 1024 Massachusetts Ave, Boston, MA 02118.
