Didn't you know that it's good luck to sail with a cat aboard?  Meet Grover, aka Goober McFloob.  Had he a valid passport, he'd be traveling with me on all my contracts.  But even though he stays at home, it somehow doesn't impact his celebrity status.  Join our community, and he'll thank you personally for supporting his Mater!

Includes
  • A postcard from Grover, signed by the man himself.
  • Access to patron-only content
  • Connect with other patrons

Want to know what it's like behind the scenes?  Curious about how it sounds while the music is still in development, before it's strong enough to go public, or before all the elements are in place?  Search no further....  At the beginning of every month, I will send you a rehearsal scratch track and give you the lowdown on what we're working on.

Includes
  • A postcard from Grover, signed by the man himself.
  • Access to patron-only content
  • Connect with other patrons
  • 1/month, previously unreleased rehearsal recording
So Let It Be Written...

I work painstakingly hard on my customized arrangements!  They have to be simple enough for musicians who aren't strong in sight-reading, yet intricate enough to be captivating.  This is what my work looks like before its final draft.

  • 1/month, previously unreleased rehearsal recording
  • A handwritten chart from my show

About Jessika Brust

Welcome aboard ladies and gentlemen.  Sit back, relax, and enjoy my Patreon!  I'm vocalist/violinist Jessika Brust, performer, producer, arranger, blogger, studio musician, and cruise ship guest entertainer extraordinaire.  I am overwhelmed with the support I've gotten thus far -- there aren't enough words in the dictionary to thank everyone sufficiently! 

My project for 2017 is to invest in the following, via artistic endeavors in (order is arbitrary):

1) Getting my violin appraised and insured!  She's not, and I've been traveling abroad with her since 2013!!  This instrument is my life, my soul mate - truly one of a kind.

2) Completing my first studio album for my duo project The Hourglass.

3) Resuming voice lessons and coaching operatic repertoire -- there is no greater high than performing this music, and no greater sustainable technique for having a voice that lasts a lifetime.

4) Continuing writing charts and producing shows.

5) Performing for community outreach in senior homes and children's hospitals, etc.

6) Touring my acts around theaters in the U.S.

7) Recording my jazz album "Nice Work".

8) Adding to my blog #AnecNotes, which will one day become a book.  While autobiographical, it is also a cultural statement, intended to provoke and challenge beliefs in our current times of political and cultural unrest.

9) Working with original music artists to bring their masterpieces to the world!

Let's get this show on the road!

I have produced a guest entertainer act, and I have been signed by agents to be marketed to cruise lines.  To put this into non-maritime/non-musician vocabulary, I'm a vocalist/violinist/fiddle player who gets sent out to a ship for a week at a time, give or take a few days, to perform 1-2 shows (sometimes more).  I write my own arrangements and charts, and produce everything with the flexibility required for the many scenarios that one can encounter in the cruise industry.

While these agents are using their booking magic, I'm marketing my shows to theaters around the US.

So where does Patreon come in?  There is a gap between when the shows are booked and when I actually get to work.  I would like to use my time more effectively to continue working on my music, and to keep in touch with my audience, so I can get more feedback from you!  To help, you can do any number of the following:

1) Join my Patreon community!

2) If you have a cruise vacation booked, call your cruise company and say, "I have reservations to sail on Voyage # ____, on ____ ship, for these dates: ____.  I really want to have vocalist/violin
ist Jessika Brust as a guest entertainer during my voyage."

3) Tell a local theater that you want Jessika Brust to perform her act in their venue.
