Dear friends, supporters, gig sponsors, clubs, and venues. As most of you know, the Screamin Eagle Band currently has a rare opportunity to head to Nashville to record and produce our first CD, our original songs with Grammy Award winner and legend Johnny Neel, formerly of the Allman Bros.
Although I mentioned how blessed we are to have an Angel Investor who believes in us, and it’s a big help to get us there, it still isn’t enough to bring this opportunity to fruition. Its like having a ticket to get there, but we dont have the money to record, have Johnny play, sing, and compose. And, this money needs to be payed back. So we are still pretty short of our needs.
Johnny Neel will be producing as well as playing on the Recordings. Johnny is a legend and is so well respected in the Music Industry he earned the nickname “A Musicians, Musician”. And Johnny has a tremendously busy schedule and a very narrow window of opportunity exists for both him and us, time wise. Mr. NEEL just doesn’t do this for anyone and we are honored and humbled that he believes in us, what we are doing, both to want to participate and produce us with his name on the cd. He is very selective who he chooses to put his name on a CD or represent an artist.
I have attached Johnny’s Wikipedia Story which is downright Amazing. This is nothing short of a dream coming true and the opportunity of a LIFETIME for OUR BAND to work with such a legend is just beyond surreal.
What did start out as just wanting to do covers and playing for fun didn’t stay that way for long. When I met Timothy Britt I knew this is what I was gonna do full time we could turn our bands music into a career. This is our beginning and I knew the talent I was pairing up with was THE REAL DEAL and could not look past this Amazing opportunity to do something full time that we loved.
In the past 3 years we have solidified and amazing line up with the most amazing Band of Brothers anyone could ask for. With the support of YOU – YES, our venues, our gig sponsors, our fans, our friends, biker fundraisers, veteran fundraisers we have had the honor to participate in.
But as most of you know, Asking for help isn’t easy, especially financially. It is also something I never thought I would ever have to do, and it is a very uncomfortable feeling for me, to ask, but we never anticipated this to ever come down the pike for us.
So, that’s why I felt the need to at least give something in return depending on Donation Amount. It is only fair and the right thing to do. Both Johnny Neel and his Engineer are blind. We are also trying to make a donation to a blind charity of Johnny & Dougs choice. Then there’s our veterans. So for each of you who donate $25 then $5.00 will go to either a blind charity or veteran charity. So for every $25 incriment, $100 is $20 for either charity. You decide.
I’d love to ask our Harley business community, local venues, bars, clubs, out door event to also make a business contribution which is a tax write-off and contribution to one of these 2 charities. Thank you.
I know times are difficult, and money’s tight, but if we can even get a $10 donation, this is how it breaks down.
10 people at $10 is $100, 100 people at $10 is $1,000 and 1000 people at $10 gives us our goal of $10,000.
Please folks I/WE/SEB will be forever grateful if you can find it in your Hearts to help us and be part of making a Dream Come True. If you do not like donating to a GoFundMe account and would rather send a check or money order please inbox me and we can work that out as well. Thank you all so much for your time and God bless
