$5000 … Ladies and Gentleman, we reached our minimum goal all because of you, and we sincerely thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Now, let's keep the momentum going! That $5000 puts a nice dent in our first quarter expenses. $10,000 would get us almost halfway through the year, and $20,000 ... you get it. The more money we raise now, the further into the future we guarantee the life of Shaking Through!
What would make the biggest impact for the life of Weathervane Music and future of Shaking Through? Simply Put: PAY for our current volunteers …. an OFFICE …. INFRASTRUCTURE. A place to put our heads together, plan and produce Shaking Through, a place to work towards even greater things for music and the community that surrounds it.
Help us keep going! We've reached our minimum goal, now, let's try to blow our goal away!
In 2011 Shaking Through will continue to bring amazing new music to thousands of peoples' attention. We do this to introduce you to amazing new artists while providing amazing opportunity for independent musicians. In 2010 we brought you Sharon Van Etten, Twin Sister, Ben + Vesper, Reading Rainbow as well as others! Next year there's more to come!
We produce Shaking Through on a tiny, tiny budget, with a totally volunteer staff, and a technical crew working for pennies on the dollar. Help us make Shaking Through sustainable!
By contributing to this campaign, you join a community that cares about independent music... one that understands the importance music plays in the lives of both THOSE WHO LOVE MUSIC, and the THOSE WHO MAKE IT. You will help us expand Shaking Through and sustain this truly groundbreaking model for community funded, independent music production.
