Why should you donate?

Why should you donate?

The music/community! The tunes were composed with community in mind -Healing, inspiring and social justice themes that have been my focus since I began playing music. My background is humble. I know children with backgrounds that will benefit from the tone poems we will record. Celebrating our youth, our ancestry, our heritage with song.

Why should you donate?

Recording is an extremely expensive process. Growing up elders saw my commitment to community. So, they asked me to find effective ways of expressing the social justice message and use music as one of those mediums. I love writing but music affects the soul in a different way. Your donation will help make this happen. Plus I’m held accountable by your investment to represent our community with integrity.

Why should you donate?

The Rewards! You can donate as little as $1.
For $10 you get a digital copy of the CD to download. For $20 you get the first reward plus a printed compilation of excerpts from blog entries at “The Thoughts of Reginald Cyntje.”
A $50 donation gets you all of the above plus a copy of the final CD autographed by all the musicians. It gets better! For $100 you receive all of the above plus 2 free passes to the CD release party in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.
$200 will get you all of the above plus the opportunity to listen to the band at a rehearsal. Now at the $500 donation level, your name will be listed in the CD liner notes as a project backer plus all of the previously mentioned rewards. If that wasn’t enough, we saved the best for last. Would you like your own private concert? For a $1000 donation you will be the recipient of all of the above rewards plus a listening workshop led by me, and a private performance by select band members within the following states: NYC, NJ, PA, MD, VA, NC, and the U.S. Virgin Islands (VI workshop and performance will include me and select local musicians). How does that sound?

Why should you donate?

This is my 35th birthday wish. You will allow me to combine my musicianship and activist spirit on one album to inspire others similar to the way my elders inspired me.

Whatever you do will be appreciated. Here is the link if you are willing and able to donate:

Thank you.
