The Concert:

Last summer I had the opportunity to, once again, tread the hallowed boards of historic Hoover Auditorium in Lakeside, Ohio with my band The Munks. I've played here before and the crowd is always amazing, full of joyful enthusiasm, love and laughter. I remember that summer evening in  July, the air was filled with childlike, wide-eyed wonder, excitement and imagination. The kids and families in the crowd were singing and dancing from the very first note and my band, The Munks (aka Greg Aker, Brad Shell and Marty Cummings), just nailed it like they always do. I had a feeling this show was going to be "one of those shows" people would be talking about and remembering for a long time, maybe even a life-time!

I wanted to try to capture the energy and spirit that was flowing so freely that night with the idea of sharing it with kids and families who could not be there in person. So we partnered with an incredibly gifted team of artists and creators from Chicago, Illinois, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and Canton, Ohio, They all brought their talents as Filmmakers, Producers, Engineers, Musicians, Visual Artists and Lighting Designers to produce, film and record an amazing concert at Hoover Auditorium in Lakeside, Ohio that night.  Listening to the early mixes and watching bits and pieces of the HD quality video captured that night I knew we had something really special.

Why Kickstarter?

So if all the filming and recording has already been completed, with such fabulous results, why are we doing a Kickstarter Campaign? The answer is the recording and filming part of this project is really just the first phase. There are several more phases needed to bring this project to a DVD player near you. This is where fans and friends of my music get to be part of the process. I'm hoping you'll check out some of the different pledge levels available and find one that works for you. I'm also hoping you'll share this Kickstarter Campaign with your friends and other families who may not know about my music. By making a pledge you'll basically be pre-ordering your advance copy of the new DVD before the release date. You also get the opportunity to receive some extra goodies bundled exclusively for our Kickstarter supporters.

All Or Nothing...

Remember Kickstarter is an all or nothing proposition. We have to reach our goal within the 30 day period of the campaign or nothing happens. So pledge now, pledge often and tell your friends to pledge too and let's make it happen!

Where Does the Money Go?

I've been producing and creating music and media for kids and families for more than twenty years. From the very first project I felt it was important to produce the best possible product with the resources available to me at the time. I believe I've been faithful to that commitment of excellence and quality with each project I've produced from the beginning. That is why, seven albums and two video projects later, I'm still super excited and inspired to create something new and make it the best it can possibly be to build up, encourage and entertain children and their parents. Your pledge will not only help us reach our goal giving us the funds we need to make this Family Concert LIVE DVD, it also allows your family to be part of the team, a part of the process. Here's what this Kickstarter Campaign will be paying for:

  • Video Editing, DVD Programming, Promotion and Marketing Clips.
  • Studio Recording Overdubs/Audio Editing/Mixing/Mastering
  • Music Mechanical Licensing and Fees
  • Professional Graphic Designer who will create custom, one of a kind artwork for the DVD Layout & Packaging, Posters and T-shirts.
  • The Manufacturing/Replication/Printing/Packaging of DVDs
  • Printing of Posters, T-shirts and Stickers
  • Finally cost of all shipping, postage and the Kickstarter fee.

Check out the cool rewards ---------->

Pledging to support the Chip Richter Family Concert LIVE DVD project on Kickstarter is not about charity but about investing in something you really like and would probably buy anyway. By participating in the campaign you'll receive some great rewards. Everything from autographed DVDs, Posters, T-shirts and Stickers to getting your Family's Name in the liner notes,  Birthday Songs, LIVE Streamed Private Concerts even a full production Chip & The Munks band show. Pick one that looks like a good fit for your family and pledge today. Notice too that some of the pledge levels have a limited number of rewards offered so if one of those look interesting don't wait till the last minute to pledge.

Stretch Goal...

If we are able to reach our goal early and go beyond that to a stretch goal of $11500.00 we will expand the project to include not only a physical DVD but also a physical CD of the LIVE Concert. So in essence what you'll be getting are two things in one, a DVD of the entire concert plus a LIVE Album/CD of the entire concert all packaged together! 

Thank You!

You, your kids, and families like yours are the reason I do what I do. Bringing smiles and laughter, helping create teaching moments and memories that you'll share for a lifetime, that's what it's all about. We are so blessed to know each other and to have spent time together in the middle of a song.

Risks and challenges

Truthfully, succeeding on Kickstarter is our largest hurdle. If we do experience setbacks, we will share those details with our supporters. Lots of planning and decision-making have led us to this moment, where we are now asking you to take part. We feel very confident that, with your support, kids and families everywhere will be singing and dancing along to this brand new Chip Richter Family Concert LIVE DVD.
