Fully Funded With 30 days Left?? Here's what's next...
My goodness. We NEVER expected to be fully funded for this project within 6 days. There are still 30 days left to go with this campaign! Because of all of you, we can go ahead with plans to start recording on September 7th, and keeping a busy schedule through the end of the month (and you'll get frequent updates on our progress). However, just because we are fully funded doesn't mean this campaign is over. If we continue to raise funds, here are some of the things we can do:
-Hire outside musicians (we're thinking of using a string quartet on one of the songs)
-Record additional material
-Do more elaborate overdubbing
-Go on tour to promote the album (!)
-Cover production and promotional costs for both One More Red Night and the new studio album
-Cover Rehearsal Space costs
-Cover travel/lodging costs
-Cover shipping costs for mailing out the rewards
-Maybe treat ourselves to a sandwich every once in awhile.
And the list goes on. The 3rd album is funded, and that's amazing, but we now have the opportunity over the course of the next month to keep District 97 afloat for a good long while. So, please keep spreading the word about the campaign!
Thanks soooooooo much, everyone.
Jonathan & District 97
