After some much needed time off to get out there with the big world and the little critters, the GreenBand is back, hard at work, doing that one thing we love so much (sharing songs with you). Thank you to everyone who came out last weekend to “The Drake” in Burlington, IA and “The Dock” in Fort Madison… oh and the two Farmers Markets! That made for 4 gigs in 2 days for some of us! So much fun and beauty out there in these first days of falling leaves and cooler nights. Thank you! Lots & Lots!
In the final seconds of the campaign, we reached our goal and then some! Thanks to your support and then a few, very generous, last-minute donations, we were able to surpass our goal of $12,500! Amazing! Thank You GreenBand supporters! You made this happen!
Every extra penny raised beyond our goal of getting our van, trailer, registration, insurance, and gear all squared away and ready to roll will go toward your rewards!!! If your donation qualified you for a free GreenBand show, we’ll be contacting you soon to schedule a gratitude performance! All other prizes and merch will be delivered during or before October of this year (2012).
We are more inspired than ever to make and share music with our friends near and afar and make new ones all along the way!
Lots & Lots,
Here’s the kickstarter website with all the info and rewards!:
Nope, not that Kirk! Captain Kirk’s Marina in Fort Madison, IA! Good food, people, and scenery! It’s always a great time. Beam me up! Sorry, I had to…
