Hard to believe, but CalProg was a year ago today, truly a seminal moment in D97 history. The entire show is available for download on Bandcamp. Our donation program (wherein you get your name in the liner notes of the new CD and other cool gifts), will be wrapping up once we finish the new CD, so act soon if you'd like to partake in that. Thanks to all who have thus far, you've been a HUGE help! Here's a video from that performance:
So..we might need an orchestra to play on some of our next album. Who wants to be that $5000 donor through our CalProg download offer who helps make that happen and gets to play on it? :-) Of course you get PLENTY of cool gifts for donating LESS than $5000 too ($25 gets a credit on the CD, $50 gets that and signed T-shirt or CD etc.) when you download the show. I'll let Leslie take it from here
Leslie talks more about the download/promo on Bandcamp and reminisces a bit about our CalProg experience.
Our full live set from CalProg will be available for download Monday, December 6th on our Bandcamp site. It's been fully mixed and sounds great!
We had an absolutely AMAZING time at CalProg on Saturday. Here's a video of our "CalProg Cover", a medley of Presto Vivace(UK)/Back in NYC (Genesis)
Hey CalProggers; We regret to inform you that despite her best efforts, our cellist Katinka Kleijn will not be able to participate in CalProg due to a prior committment with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Don't be discouraged though, we are well-versed in putting on great shows as a 5-piece, and we are confident CalProg will be no exception. See you there!
