Hello lovely JRB fans,
As you may know the Jaclyn Reinhart Band (JRB = myself, Jessy Ashfield, Tony Paterson, Jeff DiPaolo and Camilo Villamizar) are honored to have been invited to play on the Discovery Stage during the ECMA's in Charlottetown PEI this year. Being a musician can be so rewarding and when you are interested in taking your music to the next level having the opportunity to attend events like the ECMA’s as a showcasing artist enables us to take advantage of gaining exposure, learning and networking opportunities. Our showcase is on Saturday April 16th at 10AM! We like to call it WAKE AND ROCK! Our plan is to stay from April 14th-17th where we will be meeting with industry professionals, attending workshops and conferences along with getting to know and support our fellow East Coast Musicians. I'll be updating you all along the way with blogging, facebook, twitter etc. plus we are creating a video diary of our trip for you to watch when we return!
The reason I am blogging this is because we could use some help from our friends, family and fans. This past Saturday our close and wonderful friends Robert and Marylyn Griffiths hosted a jam/fundraiser to help raise some extra funds. A huge thank you to all that attended and for your generosity, you were so kind and we had such an amazing night! A few highlights from the evening were Jim Blewett and John Farkas stopped by, JoAnne Daly sang for us, Jean-Eve, the Grasse Roots, Bruce Hughes and many more all played music for us and the crowd helping to fill our donation jar, it was fantastic! Again Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
I have had quite a few people ask how they could donate even though they were unable to be present for the fundraiser so I've set up a link though PayPal. If you would like to kindly donate we would very much appreciate it and your good karma will be returned one day! The donations we receive from you all will help us cover some of the expenses for the us five to travel and stay in Charlottetown for the conference.
Any little bit helps from $1.00 - $10.00 whatever you would like to donate. It is much appreciated so please click the secure “Donate Now” button located below.
We are sending a huge thank you to all who have been and will be supporting us! (I still don't think I've said Thank you enough!)
