Fun Palace learned the benefits of promoting artists day-to-day through the rigors of touring gaining fan allegiance via a grass roots manner. This vision continues today through the Internet and promoting via websites, mass as well as personalized emails, bulletin boards and online commerce. The Fun Palace provides a storage, processing and shipping facility, capable of providing servicing and fulfillment for artist-related merchandise (clothing, promo items, music). When coupled with the marketing services of the central office, Fun Palace Entertainment provides a potent capability of servicing a worldwide fan base using cost-effective means with fast turnaround correspondence and product fulfillment. Fun Palace initiated the operation through the now well established www.jeffbuckley.com portal site which has supported the legacy of JEFF BUCKLEY's music worldwide with the support of the Estate of Jeff Buckley and Sony Music Entertainment. The operation began by offering Sony's warehouse overstock of unused promotional material (posters & point of purchase items) FREE to fans who just paid shipping and handling. Currently, the Jeff Buckley Music product line has expanded to include a wide assortment of t-shirts, postcards, photographs, posters, temporary tattoos, guitar picks, and an assortment of memorabilia sold via Ebay charity auctions. In addition, Fun Palace Entertainment is the exclusive Fan Club Merchandiser for internationally renown rockers THE STROKES. With music fans joining the Alone, Together fan club and purchasing online or through the mail, Fun Palace exclusively services merchandise to the Alone, Together members who have access to a variety of value-priced products (t-shirts, books, magnets, shoelaces), designed and selected personally by the band. Fun Palace also continues to support activities of the ROAD RECOVERY FOUNDATION [a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization promoting the benefits of healthy living to young people through the power of music via industry professionals whose lives have been affected by substance abuse] by donating merchandise fulfillment and logistical coordination services to the foundation. Fun Palace has been active charitable participants in Soberwear, and separate efforts of E-Bay/Missionfish Charity Auctions of rock memorabilia (working directly with such clients as Gibson Guitars and the band JET) thus raising thousands of dollars for the non-profit organization.
