The CDs and rewards will be ready to deliver or pick-up around October 27. We have our premiere performance on November 10 at Grace First Presbyterian Church in Long Beach as part of the Grace First Concert Series.
Many of you will be coming, we hope, but we also know that many of you live out of the area and cannot make it. So we want to know:
* If you ARE NOT able to make our Nov. 10 show and would like your rewards delivered or mailed to you as soon as possible, e-mail Stan at email@example.com, and it shall be done.
* If you are coming to the performance and will pick your rewards up there, you do not need to do anything.
* If we do not hear from you or do not come to the performance, we will mail or deliver your rewards the week of Nov. 12.
This will most likely be the last Kickstarter update we will send out for this campaign. Those of you that said you did not want more e-mail, we will not put you on our e-mail list. Otherwise, we would like to periodically send you updates on our performances via e-mail; let us know if you would rather not.
So, thank you all once again, from the bottom of our hearts, for the chance to record this record. They may be our songs, but this is your album. We hope you enjoy it.

The CD is being mastered, the artwork is being finalized, the duplicators are ready, the pictures are being printed, and our work is mostly done. Now we get to have fun!
The album title, voted on by the band, is "Bring Some Friends." So, bring some friends! Here is our plan for the next few weeks, so that you get your final rewards and we move into the next phase of Moonshine.
- The photos and bonus CDs (for top tier rewards) and being prepared and should be ready early October. Our plan is to hold them for you until November 10, our debut performance. However, we know some of you won't be able to be there. So, watch for an e-mail update in early October asking if you will be picking up your final rewards or if you want them mailed to you.
- Our release concert will be on Saturday, November 10, 7:30 p.m., in the Grace First Concert Series in Long Beach. Mark it on your calendar!
- We now have a ReverbNation.com page with three songs on it: "You Wanted to Be" (which I told you about in our last update), "Afterword" (which is on your demo), and a new song, "Jackson City." We,... love this song. Hope you do, too. Check out the page at http://www.reverbnation.com/moonshinecalifornia. Feel free to leave a comment there!
Thanks, as always, for your support.

We kind of have to keep pinching ourselves to remind us that, thanks to your generosity, we are able to record our first album. Again - thank you so much!
We have started recording 11 songs (to go along with the three you've already heard), and we are about halfway done with the tracking. The mixing and duplication will still take a little while, so we anticipate finishing in late September. But I can tell you that we are all very happy with what we are hearing so far. Our goal is to make something that we are proud of, and that you will enjoy.
Two of the songs are brand new, and have never been performed live by us. The 14 songs (in no particular order) that will be on the CD are:
The Stars Sang a Song
Don't Walk Away
You Wanted To Be
Cold Case Blues
Love is Running Out of Time
Michael Bought a Martin
Take My Burden Down
Next update when we are in final editing and mixing!
Blessed, Claudia, Shar, Stan, Nathan, Darrell, Anna and Joe
