It occurred to me that THOUSANDS OF OBSESSED FANS, whom donated on the ANDERSON PONTY BAND’S KICKSTARTER site, had HARASSED JON ANDERSON & JEAN LUC PONTY, for the reason that THEIR CDs and DVDs were not completed on time.
Ladies and Gentlemen, DO YOU WANT THOSE CDs & DVDs to end up with FAST but NASTY RESULTS or do you want them to be GOOD, with HIGH QUALITY SOUND & VISION?
Harassing those LEGENDARY MUSICIANS will not speed up the process, therefore, RESPECT THOSE LEGENDS & WAIT FOR THOSE CDs & DVDs this Spring, therefore, DON’T THINK FOR YOURSELVES, THINK OF THE LEGENDS, WHO WILL DELIVER TO YOU!
And now, a message from Management:
We’ve seen some recent posts, emails and comments on Kickstarter and other websites about what will be delivered to our Kickstarter backers and we want to respond to those concerns. The album will include 50-60 minutes of music from the Aspen sessions. The DVD is a live presentation of the Aspen concert.
We want to assure you that we understand the reasons for the concern that some of you have raised. Although all of the Reward Descriptions clearly do state that there would be a single CD and DVD of the Aspen show, some of the other content, specifically Update 17, said something very different, and we acknowledge our responsibility and apologize for the misunderstanding and miscommunication about the product details.
While our plans definitely do include recording and releasing more music in the future, there was simply no way it would have been possible for the Band to create, arrange, rehearse, record and complete a separate studio album in advance of completing and producing the Aspen show CD and DVD. Whatever the source of the misunderstanding, Jon and Jean Luc were for the most part not involved in the Kickstarter postings, and certainly not Update 17; it has always been their understanding and intention that the Kickstarter project was going to be all about the Aspen performance only.
For those who feel that they were misled and taken advantage of because there will be a single album released instead of two separate albums and who wish to be compensated, we will offer to any contributor who requests a partial refund of their contribution in the amount of $5.00 if your reward included only the digital download, and $12.50 if your reward included both the digital download and the CD. These amounts reflect one-half of the contribution levels for the digital download and the digital download plus CD respectively. Please email your request to: firstname.lastname@example.org on or before December 31, 2014. No refunds will be offered after that date.
We are well along in post-production working on additional editing and mixing of the album and DVD, and we will be keeping you updated and posting samples as they become available. We all truly believe that the Anderson Ponty Band is a powerful and magical musical vehicle, and we are grateful and appreciative that you have joined us on this wonderful journey.
Again, we sincerely apologize for the misunderstanding and confusion.
The Anderson Ponty Management Team
BESIDES, A NEW WEBSITE IS UNDER WAY, THIS FRIDAY!
Hi all…hope everyone is doing great today. This is Jamie G writing.
I talked with management today and I’m happy to tell you
that this Friday our new website ( currently under construction)
will be live.
In addition many of the questions you have asked me here as well as in personal messages ( that I can’t answer cause I am just a musician in the band) will be answered…yes including some of you who wonder about past “business”.
I am also thrilled to tell you that though we are still working every day on recording, creating, tweaking, that mixes are starting and there will be a sample of one of those also posted on Friday.
Hope that you all will check in.
Thank you …
Jamie Glaser ( guitarist ..APB band)
