Last week with almost two weeks left, we reached our funding goal. I would like to thank everyone who has supported us on Kickstarter as well as the many others who have been making private contributions! We couldn't do this without you and I know that I and the rest of the band am looking forward to getting this disc out there!
Remember, we still have a little less than a week to raise money so if you or someone you know would like to support this project, it is not too late! Any additional money we raise will go towards paying guest artists on our tour, videographers for our live concerts (At least one of these will be posted on my webiste) and other awesome stuff that will make our CD release a lot of fun.
I sent the mixes to Mark Hood at Echo Park studios today to be mastered. Mark is a brilliant recording engineer and he has worked with some of the best bands in the business including the Bob Minzer Big Band, Busselli/Wallarab Orchestra, George Benson, and John Schofield! (Just to name a few) I'm really excited to get someone like Mark working on the project and I know that he will add that little something extra that will make our tunes sparkle.
Thanks again for all the love and support and I will be sure to keep you updated on our progress in the comming weeks!
