Ron is raising money to produce this new Lennon Tribute album using the Kickstarter site. I know everyone will be interested to hear Ron tell some interesting stories about the making of this album and his experiences with John Lennon in recording the "Walls and Bridges" album. It's sure to be a blockbuster CD and Ron needs some help to raise the money for it. I have attached some information I just received from Ron including the site address so you can hear Ron's stories and also contribute to support this wonderful musical project.
Dear Friends and Relatives,
Just wanted to update you on my John Lennon jazz tribute album "Kickstarter" campaign, and thank those who've contributed. I can't tell you how thrilled Angela and I are at the positive response we've received.
We are currently in Week 3 (of 6) and we are approaching 50% of our goal of $5,000, which is amazing, but we have to get to 100% to receive any of the pledges. So please for this next push, forward the below link to any and all of your friends. Also, I would love to give recognition to our donors via my Facebook and Kickstarter page, but I've been hesitant to do so, without your permission. So for those who have already donated (or will) please let me know if you have any objection to your name being posted.
Here's the link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/134490756/lennon-and-the-beatles-a-jazz-tribute
Thank you again for your continued support in helping me create my "dream" album.
