I am a music enthusiast with a deep love for the energy of crowded venues, loud music, & passionate fans. I have a diverse background that includes private security, talent buying, festival security planning, & media relations. I've also worked as a camera operator for various projects, including music videos featuring notable artists like Bernz, Tech N9ne, & Krizz Kaliko. Additionally, I am a camera operator for Full Moon Features, where I contribute to the production of horror movies.

The Ukrainian metal band Jinjer, initially restricted due to the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine, recently received the all-clear from Ukraine’s government to continue touring. Subsequently, the band announced that the upcoming European tour dates for the summer will begin in June 2021. The trek will last until August 2022, and it will include stops in several countries.

And this time around, Jinjer will be touring as official Ukrainian ambassadors.

We are very honored to announce that together with the help of the Ukrainian Ministry of Culture, that we have successfully been granted permission to travel abroad as ambassadors of our country to raise funds and awareness about the war raging back home,” the group explained in an update this week.

They added, “This is a huge honor for us as a band and as citizens. We will do our part to make sure that this war stops as soon as possible!”

Jinjer raised over $140,000 for charity in March by donating funds in order to stop all of the band’s touring of America for the full six months of its planned “Knotfest Roadshow” tour. Then, bassist, Eugene Abdukhanov said he had never known his family since he was separated from them after Russia started attacking in February. Jinjer confirmed their members’ safety but condemned the invasion led by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Other artists have vocally supported Ukraine in addition to Jijner. Some events they have planned in Russia have been canceled or postponed as a direct result of tensions with Russia.
