no. fundraisers should be for someone who is in need of something necessary to keep on living and cannot afford it. A professionally recorded cd is not a necessity.

I would go if I believed in them.
As an aside, tell them about this too: http://www.kickstarter.com/

I would definitely support them if they were a friend of mine! There are all kinds of reasons to raise funds, and supporting someone you love is a damn good reason!!

I have *no* knowledge in the area, but if someone had to buy or rent some kind of studio time - isn't that somewhat costly?

Can be done for under a grand.

I would support someone who has been at it for a long time. Gigs at local places.

People really don't buy CDs anymore.
Buy a good camera and build up your YouTube followers. Look up Megan Tonjes. She is awesome.

Yes! Local shows are a must. =)
i love me some Megan Tonjes & have since way before she "made it".
when it comes to YT, you have to be creative.
You sitting in front of a camera just belting out lyrics over a song played from your media player is lame to me.

I don't see this as any different that anyone else wanting to be in any other career. Requires work and dedication to do what you want to do.

Jody Raffoul has been at it for years. It's not something you wake up and say "today I'm going make music " and expect to make money. Very,very few people make enough money to survive.

I would go to any local shows/events that they were putting on, and support them that way.

But not a fundraiser.

I have an incredibly talented friend who did a CD launch. It was like an unplugged show featuring her new music. The cost of the tickets included receiving a copy of the CD at the door. There was an elaborate spread of finger foods and champagne and she signed the CDs after the show. That was an exciting way to be a part of her success.

No, we have known the owners of Jam Space since they opened up...it is a completely new venture and they are awesome. My step-son has been with them since they opened about two years ago. He has gone there from drum lessons and has jammed with his band there since the beginning. My DD has done a couple of recordings there, they are very reasonable price wise. DD also had her last birthday party there....a karaoke recording party that they all had a riot doing....they did the recording, a photo shoot and played rock band. Pizza, snickety snacks and cake....teenage birthday heaven....LOL

I highly recommend this business....they are super friendly and knowledgable!!

Here is some more info on Jam Space with the owners' names (sorry wasn't sure of their last name the other day)

Our sons' band headlined this concert yesterday. A lot of the music was not something I would choose to listen to, however they did awesome with the kids. Many of the bands have come a long way! The great thing is if you have a kid that wants to play, but doesn't have friends that do, they match them up with other kids there in the same boat. They really are a great organization for kids/teens.
