Fifty seats at $125 each are available for audience members who will not only be participants in a historic recording event but, with the purchase of their tickets, be donating to an exciting and worthwhile charitable organization – the Alive Inside Foundation. Concert-goers will also receive a signed copy of the CD when it is released.
Food and drink will be provided at this brunch-hour event.
The concert will be recorded by master engineer Talley Sherwood on-site at Capitol’s Studio B with a live audience. After editing, mixing, mastering, and duplication a CD will be released on the independent Pancake Records label with attendant promotion and publicity to raise awareness of the charity and ensure generous sales to benefit Alive Inside. All CD sales monies will go to Alive Inside.
Concert proceeds and additional sponsorships will underwrite the costs of production so that the Foundation benefits from all sales. Any excess funds generated will likewise go to the Foundation.
