Hi Friends,

Thank you so much for visiting our PledgeMusic page. We are thrilled to be recording a CD of brand new arrangements with our brand new eleven piece band “Five Plus Six.” We can’t wait to share results with you.

For those unfamiliar with PledgeMusic, think of the service as a backstage pass. It literally allows you to become directly involved in the actual behind-the-scenes, creative process.

By making a pledge toward our project, not only do you receive the rewards that you pledge on, you also gain access to an exclusive pledgers-only page that we’ll update as we move through this process together.

Money raised will go directly to the production and promotion of our CD. Should we exceed our goal, proceeds will support the Knoxville Jazz Youth Orchestra, an honors band for regional middle and high school students. Two of the youngest members of our group “Five Plus Six” are recent alumni of the Youth Orchestra, so it seems only natural that we would support this program.

I hope that you’ll take a minute and consider a level of involvement that is right for you. Thanks for your time and thank you for your support!

Sincerely,
Vance Thompson and Five Plus Six
