Its been 15 years since I have released a CD. So seeing this new CD, ‘Dude’ coming to light is exciting! Now that the crowdfunding campaign is up and running I thought it would be fun to share updates on the making of the CD as it comes to completion and beyond.
Also a great way to thank the contributors who are making this CD possible!
Day one started with a trip to the Dr. due to a pinched sciatic nerve…now I am on steroids…works for athletes we’ll see if how it gets me through the CD’s completion…lol I was up until 3:30 AM working on the music so I guess I am PUMPED up! Only problem is I was up at 7:30 AM to hit the pavement.
No sooner then the campaign was released the first backer purchased the Guitar/Craftbeer Aficionado package(Includes the CD, VIP invite to CD Release Party(Nov 4, 2017) and a commemorative beer mug($1 off fills at Oceanside Ale Works for life of mug) Thanks to Risa Lin for being the first contributor and sparing me any time of looking at a $0 goose egg!! We have never met but she is part of the Slayen clan who settled in Canada probably over 100 years ago before my grandfather moved to California. Thank you Risa!!!! Of course mom and Aunt Diane were right there at the beginning too!
Special thanks to our first sponsor, as well!! Eric Schweinfurter of Apex Contracting & Restoration, came in early on day 2. The tax-deductible sponsorship package offers: your image in the DUDE label which will be prominently featured on the back of the CD, among other perks including VIP and early entrance to the CD Release Party. Just like the name says Apex can help you with all your contracting AND restoration needs!!!
And of course many of the awesome items we are offering contributors would not be possible without the agernous support of Mark Purciel and Oceanside Ale Works. If you haven’t been make sure you go, if not before, then definitely on Nov 4 for the CD release party!
back early and often for updates on the CD project. If you’d like to be a part of the CD and receive cool stuff please check out the Indiegogo crowdfunding page. If you are not able to contribute no problem sharing this with your friends who are craftbeer and guitar fans will also help out.
Until the next update,
