Kickin' things off right...

by Ali Sperry

It's been a blissful Saturday so far today. It started off with my friends coming over to rehearse and eat pancakes. My very talented friend Ted Ringeisen has been working on the Kickstarter video and we're planning to launch it by next weekend. He joined us this morning to take some footage of the rehearsal and general merriment.

I've never done a Kickstarter before--and yeah, I'll admit I'm a little nervous. It's a big undertaking and I realize that I am getting ready to to ask a lot of people. I feel ready for this though and am very grateful that there is such a thing as Kickstarter to provide a format in which to seek support and offer an opportunity for people to become involved in what we're doing in a very profound way. I am confident and so excited about this west coast CD release tour and can't wait for the Family Vacation to cover a huge stretch of new ground!

Stick around for the vid...
