In September 2013 Paul and myself completed our first co headline tour together. It was an amazing experience! We played an "extra special" concert in Nelson in this lovely old church which now gaining a reputation as one of New Zealand's top live music venues. It looked & sounded SO good in there that we decided to film & record it professionally and we invited a high school choir to back us on stage with harmonies. All this was filmed on 4 very hi tech Canon HD cameras using the best video and sound operators in the region.
So far we have spent $5000 on producing this beautifully captured concert with editing and mixing the song recordings to perfection. We also saw some amazing kiwi countryside during our travels and thought it was interesting enough to add the documentary component so it plays in-between the concert songs showing insights into both Paul's 40 year music career and my own journey from starting as a Boat Builder to pro touring musician over the last 12 years.
Some will find it funny, some will find it inspirational and some will love the exotic scenery and the journey of 2 musicians traveling thru "Middle Earth" and sharing their music. Life as a modern day musician may not be what you'd expect! The stories behind the songs will give you a new appreciation for what these songs mean.
We need to raise $4250 to finish this project so we can press DVD's and this campaign is going to pay for the pressing costs of this DVD/Documentary + Live audio CD masterpiece!
Please consider the rewards for pre purchasing this so we can get this printed and out there before DVD players become obsolete! (God help us!)
Risks and challenges
Once we have 1000 DVD/CD packages pressed in September, we can post them to you straight away. We will of course be selling these at our shows individually and will play a series of "Songbook & Six String" concerts NZ wide to celebrate and promote this wonderful DVD asap.
Paul has his 2nd successful knee replacement operation in 2014 so as long as we can both walk to the post office any pre-sales will get to you in 2 - 3 working days in NZ and a within a week anywhere overseas!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
