This project was successfully funded on June 23, 2012.
Friends of Fiddles! Friends of Sticks!
It gives me great joy to report that Fiddle/Sticks: The Drummer Project was successfully funded this morning! THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH for your generous contributions and all the time and effort spent spreading the word far and wide.
Well, now what???
In the next few months I'll be:
• Going through the audio and video captured in the first Fiddle/Sticks session with Kenny Malone, and preparing the sharable bits;
• Creating the Chop Shop, the online members-only Fiddle/Sticks hangout for sharing of content and discussion;
• And planning/preparing for the next sessions with Futureman and Jamey Haddad.
Welcome to the wild ride of fiddles and rhythm. Buckle up. There's no telling where we'll end up....just remember, you're partially responsible ;-)
With great appreciation,
Thanks to everyone who has supported and checked out my Fiddle/Sticks drummer project. This will just take 54 more seconds of your time.
Fundraising ends this coming Saturday morning, June 23 at 10:56A Eastern Time.

@CaseyDriessen needs your help in the home stretch! Please fund his Fiddle/Sticks Project by this Friday. Groove on! http://kck.st/fdl-stx
With great excitement, I'm happy to report this project is already under way. It's day 2 of 2 in the studio with Kenny Malone, and I can't wait to begin sharing the experience with you. In fact, you can see a time lapse of us setting up here! http://tinyurl.com/fdlstx-setup Futureman and Jamey Haddad are next. And after them…
Thanks again for your time and efforts.
Have a great day.
