Hey, jazz lovers!
I am writing to ask for your help in spreading the word about the Art of Cool Project's Kickstarter campaign. As you may already know, The Art of Cool is on a quest to bring a Jazz/Music Festival to downtown Durham in April of 2014! This venture is truly a community effort, and one that I hope you can and will support. The goal is to raise $25,000 in 30 days. We are 22% funded and have only 23 days left and really need the support from our community of jazz fans.
Just to give you a bit of background, The Art of Cool Project is a non-profit organization that myself and Al Strong started two years ago. The goals of the organization are muti-faceted, in that we strive to expose the general public to high quality music and musicianship, while giving musicians and bands an opportunity to perform their music before a captive audience. In short, AOCP is commited to providing a platform for musicians, while not only expanding the current audience for Jazz/Live music, but doing our part to make sure Jazz has a well informed and educated audience for years to come.
What are your thoughts on this? Are you game for helping get the project funded to bring a major jazz festival to downtown Durham?
I hope so, and I hope to have your support as a fellow jazz lover to make this thing happen!!!
