Donkey Kong Country composer David Wise confirmed for DKC piano album!

Posted by Tommy Tallarico (Creator)

Hi Everyone!,

With only 1 day to go in the project I am happy to announce that we have confirmed that original Donkey Kong Country composer David Wise will be performing on our bonus Donkey Kong Country piano album as well as co-producing it with me!  David is very excited about putting this together with us and we can't wait to start working with him on this!  He's been a good friend for many years and has always been a big supporter of Video Games Live.  He may also be joining us for parts of our UK tour in November!

Here is a video of David performing with us a few years ago in London...

Over the past 24 hours we raised an additional $14,000 which is DOUBLED because of the amazing generosity of our friends Josh & Ravi at! That puts the project at $200,000 right now... which means we only need to raise an additional $25,000 to get to that stretch goal! The LEVEL 5 project saw over $50,000 raised in the final 24 hours! So if we do the same... that will get us 2 stretch goals!

A reminder that I'll be doing a long stream tomorrow as we go into the final hours of the project. You can sign up for it and you will get a notification when we go live! And if you're not in the proper time zone or can't make it... you can still post a question now and I will answer it during the live stream! SIGN UP HERE:

Working like crazy to spread the news as much as I can.  PLEASE HELP!!!!

About 24 more hours to go!  I'm confident we can do it if we all come together.

      This is awesome news! I'm a huge DK Country fan! DK Country was the first video game that I ever beat, and has a huge place in my heart! Beating that game was one of my greatest childhood memories!

      Ok... now you're just monkeying around with us at this point!

      @Rowan: David doesn't play piano. Trevor will be performing and arranging the album... but David will be a special guest performer. He plays sax!

      So David Wise is playing instead of Trevor Gomes?

      Just pushed it back on my FB page, hopefully it may catch a few people. too bad I can't upgrade my pledge, which is really not possible this time around. Too much amazing campaigns at the same time (your's,Christopher Tin's and Austin's one :p) Plus the newbordn baby but hopefully I could still back all three at a good enough level.
      Looking forward to listening to this new album :D

      Hell yeah! Sadly I had to lower my pledge, so I'll get this later.
