About this project

Hello to they Kickstart community! I am Dren aka Guerilla Hollywood, a producer who works with Jodeci (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jodeci) the the biggest R&B group of our time. I have recorded with members of the group, see links>My  ft. w/ Mr. Dalvin (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ag8Zh_g2QAQ) and My ft. w/ DeVante Swing (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=og4GhggDd48) and  K-Ci Hailey, all members of the group. I am producing & releasing a single featuring all members of the group (last release was 1995) since the group disbanded in 1998. I felt it would only be right to include the fans in this project.

 I am welcoming you to join me in a historic moment in R&B history. I have planned this for some time and came to the conclusion that I would include the community and millions of Jodeci fans to contribute to what I believe will be the biggest moment of R&B this year. A Jodeci Reunion Single. At the time the track is untitled but is in the works as we speak. To the younger generation this is an opportunity for you to become familiar with the music that your parents grew up on. For my generation this will be a chance to relive the moments we all cherish as teens ourselves.

 The group consists of two pairs of brothers from Hampton, Virginia and Charlotte, North Carolina: Cedric & Joel Hailey and Donald & Dalvin DeGrate, all respectively known by their stage names: K-Ci & Jojo, DeVante Swing and Mr. Dalvin. The group's name is a combination of the names from the three original members: Jo-Jo, DeVante, and K-Ci. The group had a successful string of hit singles and platinum albums until the group went on hiatus after 1998.

Now 14 years later you have a chance to be part of the a historic reunion. I originally decided to finance the project myself but, I felt it would not be as epic as having the entire world contribute to this project. The project is slated to begin production in April this year. If we don't meet the goal I set for $25,000 you will not be charged 1 cent, as I will have to finance the project myself. I feel this will be more special to have the fans come together to back this special project.

There are millions of fans of Jodeci worldwide and now is your chance to back the project up. This will be a single featuring all members the group and I am sure will spark a whole new Jodeci movement. There will also be a music video to follow that I am sure will give the world of R&B back a well-deserved break from the watered down R&B we have become of accustomed to in resent years.

If the goal is met we will record the single in Los Angeles in April next month. You can even have the option to come to L.A. with me to meet with me & the group in person during the video shoot. If you have any question please email me directly at dren@caliashollywood.com. The donations will be going directly to the members of the group to make this single the hottest track of the year!

Sincerely,

Dren
