      Congratulations! That's great news. Also, just to say thanks for successfully completing the documentary and keeping your promise to all of your Kickstarter backers. I'm delighted to have supported this project and am looking forward to seeing the documentary - even if I have a bit longer to wait as an international/Irish backer (and brother of the previous commenter!)

      Congratulations guys from an Irish backer! Looking forward to the film coming to this side of the world. I had the pleasure of bumping into Alex before one of his Dublin gigs years ago. He was an utter gentleman. I cannot wait to see the documentary! I'll spread the word!!! Take Care!
