January, 2013. Kites To Fly remained at #1 on the Bull Moose (music store) charts for its first six weeks of release! In ONLY six weeks, it became the 3rd best selling regional CD of the entire year for 2012. Thanks to our friends at Bull Moose and to the customers of its 11 stores around Maine and New Hampshire! On Saturday, January 26th, the four-piece presented the very first public performance of "An Evening of Dan Fogelberg Music" to a sold out Lyric Music Theater audience in South Portland, Maine. Heavenly.
December News: We are so thankful for the wonderful response we have received over the first month of the release of Kites To Fly. In Maine & NH, the collection debuted at #1 on the Bull Moose (music store) charts and has remained at #1 for four straight weeks. The reviews have been beautiful, but perhaps the most meaningful feedback has come from those of you who love Dan and his music as much as we do. We are so grateful for your encouragement, support and feedback through our first month of release. In mid-December, we were proud to make our first donation to the Fogelberg Foundation of Peoria! On December 29th, the trio presented an Evening of Dan Fogelberg Music for the very first time at a beautiful house concert on a snowy, wintry Maine night.
As you may have read, we are making donations to three different organizations from sales of the Kites To Fly CDs. We were pleased to make the first donation to the Fogelberg Foundation of Peoria this week and will be making donations to the Prostate Cancer Foundation and World Wildlife Funds later this month. Thanks again, friends, for helping all of this be possible.
November 6 - Great news! The shipment is on its way and we will be shipping all pre-orders on Thursday, November 8th! Our official release date in Bull Moose stores around Maine & NH is Tuesday, November 13th, and in a couple of weeks the double CD will be available through national online retailers such as Amazon, Best Buy, CD Baby, iTunes, and more!
October 30 update - Hello friends! Due to Hurricane Sandy, we have learned from our NJ manufacturer that our delivery of the new CD has been delayed by a few days. We are waiting to hear when we can expect the CDs and as soon as we have them we will immediately ship to all pre-orderers the very next day! Thanks for your patience and support and enthusiasm!
September 26 - We have a new timetable to announce for the release of Kites To Fly: Celebrating the Music of Dan Fogelberg. Because Don decided to add a song from Dan's final CD, Love in Time, we extended our recording sessions and rescheduled the mastering sessions. Happily, we will be having the double CD mastered at Gateway Mastering Studio in Portland, Maine. This is where Dan's final CD was mastered before its eventual release in 2009. Pre-orders will now be shipped the first week of November and we will have our official release date in mid-November. Additional song announcements are coming this week! To order the Double CD (and/or the CD+T-shirt or CD+poster or package of all three), please see the Store section of our website. Thanks for your support, patience and great enthusiasm for this project.
