I've got a little X-mas Kickstarter running to raise funds for musical and studio equipment for the youth in the care system I tutor/mentor every day as a day job. Just trying to get some louder amps, sound treatment, window bars and maybe even a guitar etc. Many thanks :) D
www.glastonburyfestivals.co.uk/the-glade-area-reveals-2015-its-line-up-featuring-public-service-broadcasting-alabama-3-slamboree/We are on The Glade's Spike Stage at Glastonbury Festival Saturday 4-6pm but look at all this good shit in The Glade area...
5 hours left! I have just arrived in the UK and now have a lot of work to do with these guys from here to support this :) https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/invisiblesystem/isim-invisible-system-in-mali
Last call for pledges, £14 away from £1000 - we leave the house/studio with internet connection tonight so I will no longer be on line but I am still working until Weds night with the musicians so please send us your final wish / pledge :)
Next will be trying to get them up and running as a unit in the UK i.e. PRS, record(s) made etc etc.
Last chance this week for even tiny £1 pledges to a) buy a football for kids who will get £100+ pleasure from it, b) feed a homeless kid for a week, c) aid a blind/old etc person for a week. £1 come on guys. I have not had 1 x £1 pledge yet! Goes a LONG way to people out here.
Last week of phase one any final pledges more than welcomed for Mali
Absolutely bloody exhausted but we are still going! Studio shots from today coming. More musicians paid thanks
And our cook to be paid, musicians also fed daily and watered/beered, studio guard paid, studio/house maid/helper paid, musicians kids fed, musicians rents paid, musicians transport/taxis to our out of town venue paid, instruments bought/supplied etc etc.
Now I daren't think of starting work 2 days after I get home and then the months of editing, mixing, producing etc! Next phase after the 28th
Still time to pledge, we aint finished yet. One more week.
Sunday. My last day of rest. Feeling almost human again. This is a public post if you want to share it please as next week more modern recording sessions starting :)
Again all funds to pay musicians and go towards buying them instruments/gear.
This will be ongoing once this kickstarter ends another will start until they are playing live and geared up :)
Pledges start at £1-£9 for me to distribute to the most needy out here personally e.g. living on the streets / blind / disabled / trying to get going etc.
Musician pledges start at £10 and end at whatever you want to send.
We have been making some great music out here. Lots of animated happy and re-engaged older known but given up musicians too..
Got to take the weekend off, head, throat and stomach pumping. Burnt out, not malaria as the family thought So Monday we are back on peeps...
Any pledges from £1-£100 very much welcomed for the Malian gang.
