I’ve got fun music news about Connections Band for you:
1) Our website is now official
2) We want you to vote for your favorite songs
3) We’re calling it $40K
4) Upcoming Shows
1) The big news: the official website is now, um, officially up and running!!!
We hope you will visit early and often: http://www.connectionsband.net
Yes, I have been working on this for several months, and I feel like a proud papa today.
Make note of the address, because that’s where the most up-to-date information about Connections Band will always be posted first.
The site has great pictures from many of our shows, soundclips, links tostories that have been written about the band. And, most dear to our hearts, a description of our two main beneficiaries —Nothing But Nets and UMCOR — and links a tally of how much money we’ve raised over the years.
The website also has a blog attached, where we hope that folks will stop byand not only read the latest news, but also leave comments too. Please check it out and feel free to comment anytime you feel inspired.
And, speaking of your input….
2) We need your vote!
We’ve created an online survey to help us pick the songs for the new “Doobie Brothers/Elton John” shows.
You can find it here.
We’re serious about wanting your input. Especially for the Elton John set, there is just so much good music to choose from, we’d love to see which songs you would vote for.
3) Let’s call it $40,000 even.
After our recent and great Walnut Hill Show, we are pleased to announce that we’ve now raised a total of: $39, 563 for UMCOR and Nothing But Nets!!!
Take a look at a graph here.
We give thanks to God, and to the generosity of all of you who have come a show and contributed.
