Joey’s Song CD Release Party

Talk about humbled. Today – nine days ahead of our deadline – we hit (and then surpassed) our Kickstarter goal. As this blog is being typed, you’ve helped us raise $7,620 for Joey’s Song. Your money is going to help us cover our manufacturing costs so that every single cent raised selling the Joey’s Song albums can go directly to the Epilepsy Foundation. Your amazing support means so much.

That sounds like a reason to celebrate, which brings us to the business at hand – the Joey’s Song release party! The party is slated for January 21, 2011, at Pinstripes in Chicago, IL, so mark your calendars now. This isn’t your father’s release party. Instead, this party is a true choose-your-own-adventure affair with fun for the whole family on tap. Music, courtesy of  The Retro Specz, Freedy Johnston, Ralph Covert and Michael Mcdermott. Bocce. Bowling. Prizes. Auctions. Food. We’re talking two floors of good times for all here. We’re going to be releasing more details over the coming weeks, so watch this space.

Please come out in January to help us celebrate Joey, celebrate the release of the first installments of Joey’s Song and celebrate all of you who have pitched in and help us reach this exciting goal. You can purchase tickets on our webpage – www.joeyssong.org. Here’s the nitty gritty:
