Friends & Fans,
I hope you get a chance to check out the movie trailer for "Some Kind of Spark" and consider a donation to the project. The film is an exciting new work from an old friend of the band, Benjamin Niles. Besides having created the artwork for two Hootie & the Blowfish CDs, Ben and I also played college soccer together for USC.
"Some Kind of Spark" highlights the importance of music in the lives of children, a cause both the band and I truly believe in. Ben is raising money for the final editing through the "Kickstarter" program and we only have THREE WEEKS left to help him reach his goal. Please help us support Ben and spread awareness about musical education by clicking the link below and "backing" his project. Can't wait to see the final product!
Visit the "Some Kind of Spark" Kickstarter page for more information.
