Posted April 14, 2017Hey Everybody! We've got the venue booked a month-and-a-half out for the show to be recorded, but need to finalize a few more details before we formally announce it. Getting rehearsal times and the performance date has been the typical scheduling challenge, given we have a band with three active working musicians! But, it looks like it's all starting to line up...so, more news shortly...stay tuned!!!
Posted February 26, 2017Hey Everybody--Just a quick update here to let you know we are underway with the project. Musical arrangements are getting finalized and roughed-out, and we are scheduling rehearsals to start next month. The date for show to be recorded here in the Boston area isn't confirmed yet, but as soon as we hear, we'll pass the information on. We want as many of you as possible to come out and literally be part of the recording! All hoots n' hollers welcome!!! Take care and looking forward to talking again soon--Paul
Posted January 26, 2017Hey Everyone!
Please accept our deepest gratitude for your participation in our upcoming CD project--your involvement means the world to us. And, thanks to you all, we have met our target goal as of this week, and the campaign will officially close out Sunday night. Hatchfund had graciously allowed us to extend the original deadline, so new donors could continue joining the project.
And, please be aware that corporate matching funds and directed giving pending will continue to pass-through to our project whenever received. With the exception of the final CD, donor perk fulfillment will start next week.
We are very excited about moving to the next phase, and we will keep you up on the progress! Thanks very much for being part of our team!!!
-The Paul Speidel Band
Posted January 07, 2017Hey Everybody!
Happy New Year to you and yours--here's hoping you have a great 2017!
I want to thank everyone for their generous contributions to the "Backline" CD project. As you know, it's a challenge to make recordings in today's environment, much less to cut through the din of all the digital noise. Your contributions will go a long way to helping us get this music out there. Creating new music while furthering the traditions of Blues, Jazz and R&B are at the core of our artistic vision and life-long commitment!
And, while we have reached $5,426 in funds, we are still working hard to get to our target goal of $8,500 by January 15. We know there are many music lovers out there who would be supportive of our project--we still need your help to spread the word!
Thank you most sincerely for all your contributions and kind words of encouragement--we are deeply grateful!
All the best for 2017--
The Paul Speidel Band
