I've had a huge amount of help on this since beginning the project last spring. Christie, Jeff and Kevin Dobson of Stormdoor Productions filmed it live at the Union Pacific Depot in Lawrence (you can hear the train go by twice--this required a certain amount of vamping on my part) on May 8, 2010. The proceeds of the performance itself went to the Lawrence Schools Foundation. The audience rocked!
Thom Alexander of Americana Music Academy wrote the song Gary's Gone Fishin' for the intro. Graphic designer Annie Tichenor, who worked on my last project, did an incredible job on the packaging. I love the tiger stripes! Countless family members and friends previewed the video.
Since I'm about to go on tour, I'm not quite ready for orders. While you wait, here's the first cut:
I'm not yet sure where the DVD release event(s) will be. Maybe one in KC, one in Lawrence. I'll let you know.
Oh, and for those of you who gave an opinion on the packaging, I did go with the eco-friendly digipak. Much less plastic than the ordinary packaging.
