Here are the results after our first fundraising concert AND an update on the project! Great news!
First the results: Our first concert to promote and fundraise for this project was on Friday, April 27th at Alvas Showroom. It was such a wonderful night. I absolutely love playing there! The great news update is below the list of donors.
There are many of you who have told me you will be contributing to the second CD project. Thank you so much and I look forward to your contribution through either the PayPal button on my website or by cheque. Also, if you know me personally (either through our gigs or as one of my students) then I would be grateful if I could receive your pre-order in the form of a cheque since PayPal takes a cut. It’s ok if it’s through PayPal though…I’m grateful for that service!
Go to the post below this one to see our pledge levels (or, of course, create your own). Remember, as little as $25 gets your CD pre-ordered AND your name in the thank you section in the liner notes. 🙂
So, here is the first list of people who have physically handed me money toward the first CD project…and in no particular order. Here’s what I have in that separated bank account:
Tom and Anne Henley sponsored a song = $400
Janice Johnson did the video footage option plus a couple of extra CDs = $150
John St. Marie sponsored a song = $400
Gerri and Roger Gibb sponsored a song = $400
I-Chin Feinblatt pre-purchased a CD = $25
Meri Rogoff and her clan sponsored a song = $400
Kathleen Mellon pre-purchased a CD = $25
Rebeka Piña paid for the studio time = $750
Lori Reed pre-purchased a CD = $25
Joni Baker pre-purchased the video footage+CD option = $100
Aram Barsamian pre-purchased a CD = $25
Lani Christensen pre-purchased the video footage+CD option = $100
George Reiss pre-purchased the video footage+CD option = $100
Mark and Nancy Hodgson pre-purchased the video footage+CD option = $100
There are more updates to come, but so far, this is what I have. Please let me know if your name is supposed to be on this list and I’ll look and see what I did with it – I do make mistakes from time to time, though I try not too 🙂
If you supported me for the Kickstarter campaign, please know that they canceled your credit card information since the project through them got canceled. Ours is still going forth 🙂
Second: the Great News!
The guys tell me that they are available to do our first bit of recording on Friday, June 15th! Yay! This project will not be done like the last time…it will be done in “bits and pieces,” meaning, that we will get in when we can and do with whatever funds we have so far.
They are eager to record my originals, so that’s our goal for that day. I’ll post here after I know what happens.
Thank you so much! Looking forward to the next update!!
